F/V Salty Sea
The Salty Sea is specially built to meet the demands of charter fishing in Alaska's waters
Our fishing vessel the Salty Sea is a 27' aluminum boat built by North River and designed to endure the rugged Alaskan waters. Salty Sea's cabin features a settee with table and seating for 4-6 people, a private head, a heater to keep warm if needed, and state of the art electronics by GARMIN. Out on deck where you will be spending your time fishing are 4 Scotty electric downriggers used for salmon fishing and ample rod holders to rest your fishing pole in-between reeling up halibut. Salty Sea is powered by a Yamaha 350hp four stroke engine. This engine is powerful, quiet, and smoothly pushes the Salty Sea at speeds in excess of 25 knots. With the safety of our guests always in mind we have met all current Cost Guard requirements. We want our guests to feel as comfortable as possible when fishing with us and we know that starts with having a fishing vessel that is safe, clean, and well maintained.
