    Enjoy Fishing on 22' Hewescraft Pro V 200 Fishing Boat in Whittier, Alaska

    Ryan's boat was fantastic. It was clean and in good shape. He provided all the fishing gear we needed for the fish we wanted to catch. We booked with the captain option and his father in law took us out as the captain. He was very helpful and did just what we wanted. We were looking for a more hands-on/DIY fishing trip, and that's exactly what we got. Having the captain option to handle the boat was great. Ryan was flexible on time/day and willing to move locations due to weather. We will definitely look for Ryan in the listings for any future boat rental needs in Alaska.

    Hunter 29' Sailing Charter! Discover Alaska

    We had the most incredible time aboard!! Checking in and out the boat was a breeze and dealing with Nate and Kate was very smooth. The day we were supposed to go out wasn't ideal and Nate offered to change to the following day which was beautiful. We will definitely be back and recommend this company in the future! Thanks again, Dan & Kirsten

    Row Boat Rental & Fishing in Sterling, Alaska

    Everything worked out great. Frank, the transport guy was very friendly and helpful. Daniel (I think that was his name) was also friendly and helpful, even when a couple of our requests were a little confusing. The time frame for using the boat was very flexible. Will use again when we return
