JoAnn, has a love of the outdoors and boating, and particularly loves to fish. She has been fishing in Alaska in the summers for 20 years, and is happiest when out on the water! She loves to share her passion for fishing with others, and that is apparent when talking to our customers trying to book a fishing trip to Ketchikan. Her and Mark both began Oasis Alaska Charters based on that foundation…the love of fishing and the hope to share that passion with others. If you book a trip with us, you will most likely have communication with JoAnn, and see her on the dock in summer checking out everyone’s catch at the end of their trip!
