“Dear Captain Bob, The only cruise that Michael and I ever considered taking was an Alaskan cruise. We just never imagined that it would be as wonderful as our cruise with you and your crew. You have such a well thought out plan. Everything a person could want was provided on your boat. It was the trip of a lifetime. Alaska is such a beautiful place with so many wonderful things to see and experience. We enjoyed every minute of it. You have a great team. To top it off, your generous gift of the photo book, photo CD and such a nice surprise delivered to the hotel on Friday. The black pebbles! You really made my trip complete with that gesture. Just perfect down to the last detail. Thank you so much! Best wishes to you.” - Linda and Michael M. July 2012

"What a trip!! Captain Bob really knew how to make this a trip of a lifetime. The views from boat were breathtaking with the clear water, mountains and glaciers all around us. I got to do some great Salmon fishing and my wife could do Humpback whale watching all in the same trip. To top this off Bob even took care of getting the Salmon shipped to our home back in Minnesota. This is what Southeast Alaska fishing is all about." - Craig L., Minnesota
