The folks at Pacific Salmon Charters got into the fishing business by doing what they love to do every day.  Our mission is to provide the best charter fishing service available. Our outstanding customer service staff will assist you with your reservations.

The Pacific Salmon Charter captains are (U.S. Coast Guard licensed) and crews are professionals who have the knowledge and experience to make your trip enjoyable and successful.

All of our fishing vessels are U S Coast Inspected with all the latest safety equipment and electronics.  Each vessel has cabins, restroom, and walk around decks.

We can accommodate individuals, small or larger groups.  We love to see the younger people catch their first fish and some of the older ones.  What a memory!
