Before you book a charter, price is a factor not to be overlooked. Set a budget beforehand so you don’t feel stressed about costs and let that spoil your amazing adventure.
One thing to be aware of is that if you find a deal that seems “too good to be true,” it probably is…
The fact of the matter is, the best charters spend close to $400 a day on fuel alone. This cost will vary depending on a number of factors, but it’s just one in a long list of expenses a truly quality captain will accrue to cover the cost of the excursion.
Ketchikan charter fishing trips are not all the same. A lot of other companies especially the bigger ones are just happy to take your money and really do not care, they are all about the bottom line. Oasis Alaska Charter is different when it comes to Ketchikan charter fishing. We take great pride in making sure you have the best time possible. Our trained multi-year captains know how to catch fish.
Other factors include:
- Proper licensing of all crew and captains
- Do they have reviews from outside companies like TripAdvisor?
- Vessel docking fees or head tax
- Quality tackle and bait for all on board
- Boat maintenance, electrical, navigational, etc.
- Safety training for captain and crew
When all is said and done, you will get what you pay for. Finding a safe, quality tour will be well worth the cost if a great fishing adventure is worth it to you.
