Seward fishing trips combine excellent angling, marine wildlife, scenic mountains and rugged, wild coastline. Halibut, lingcod, rockfish and salmon are all on the menu when you fish from Seward with Alaskan Fishing Adventures.
With four boats based in Seward, Alaskan Fishing Adventures can help you succeed in catching a multitude of these hard-fighting fish. They offer two types of trips; either a day trip or a long range overnight charter. The long range overnight charter allows an angler to get double limits and is for the hardcore fisherman that wants to fish all night long. The trips are intense and allow Alaskan Fishing Adventures charter boats to reach fishing grounds not accessible on normal day trips.
On normal day trips, Alaskan Fishing Adventures charter boats access Resurrection Bay, Prince William Sound and the Gulf of Alaska. Starting in May, anglers can begin catching king salmon, multiple species of rockfish, and halibut. Seward fishing continues to build through the month of June and on July 1, lingcod season opens. Silver salmon begin to arrive in July, and fishing for all of these amazing species continues into August.
