Deep Sea Fishing In Seward, Alaska - Puffin Charter

We love to go on adventures as a family, and try new things and one of the things that we LOVE to do when we travel, is to go deep sea fishing. We have been deep-sea fishing in Guatemala, Alaska, Belize, Florida, Galveston, and Cozumel and every time we go, it’s always a new adventure and super fun experience. We plan to go in different seasons and catch all different types of fish!

When we were in Alaska, I was pregnant and we took our son deep-sea fishing. Therefore, if you are worried about taking your children with you to go deep-sea fishing, please do not be afraid, the boats are safe and they have everything you need as far as life jackets and safety gear to protect your family.

I really wanted to share this experience with you guys because it was so unique and the fact that we were traveling with some of our best friends, made it even more special! We went with like 30 of our closest friends. and the entire group loves adventure. We rented the entire boat out for the day to share the experience together.

We left at 6:30AM and got to experience the gorgeous sunrise as we pulled out of the harbor. It was truly magical! I actually did a Facebook live as we were pulling out before I lost reception. It was such a unique and special experience because we saw glaciers, mountains, and so many different types of animals. It was so surreal!

If you are headed to Alaska and want to plan a trip of a lifetime, then I would definitely recommend going to Seward and booking a trip with Puffin Charters. We all limited out, which is a really big deal - that means that our guides knew where to find the fish and everyone was extremely happy and excited about the experience. After we got back to shore we went to a restaurant in town where they cooked fish for us, so we had the best fresh fish we have ever had! It was unbelievable and we are so thankful for the opportunity we had to go and be a part of this amazing adventure!

Only did we build that forgettable family memories that we got to share this experience with our best friends. If you complete a trip with us that we were favorite people to experience a moments like these, then I would definitely recommend that! I hope that you felt his help for years looking forward to talking with you soon!!

“Get the Best Seward Alaska Fishing with Puffin Fishing Charters

We invite you to join us, the Puffin Fishing Charters crew, for the ultimate Alaska fishing adventure of a lifetime!

We design our multi-species trips depending on what species are available during the summer fishing season with Halibut being on the menu throughout the entire season.

We offer three types of trips through the fishing season:

Mid-April/May/ June/Early-July:

  • full day King Salmon/Halibut trips

  • full day King Salmon-only trips

  • full day Halibut/Rockfish(bass) or Halibut/Pacific Cod trips

We went in August and we loved fishing the full day of Halibut/Silver Salmon/Rockfish


  • full-day Halibut/Silver Salmon/Rockfish trips

  • full-day Silver Salmon/Rockfish trips

  • full-day Halibut-only trips

We do our best to target as many species as possible, but due to time constraints and the availability of certain species, most trips are dual-species.

Our experience and our boats aren’t all that set us apart. Our equipment is top-of-the-line so you can experience the best Alaska fishing experience possible.
