Testimonials

Here's what a travel writer had to say about her experience on one of our charter boats:

"Aurora Charters was beyond anything we might have expected. We had a wonderful time... Look forward to meeting you at some time in the future..."

- Alison DaRosa, San Diego Union-Tribune, San Diego, California

"This father and daughter had a fabulous day with Captain Carl and crew! The Aurora was comfortable, the people were friendly, the scenery was jaw-droppingly beautiful, and the fishing was amazing! We came home loaded down with halibut, salmon, lingcod, and rockfish--the best fish we've ever tasted. Even better, we have memories and stories we'll enjoy for the rest of our lives. We're still dreaming of our Alaska adventures six months after returning home, and fishing with Aurora was the absolute highlight! Many thanks to Carl, Kim and their crew!"

- Gene Overkamp and Jane Nakken from Minnesota

"Just wanted to say that of all the places we fished in Alaska that your opperation was by far the best and the Captain Dan was fantastic (Top notch) . My wife caught a 102 lb Halibut. We caught Big Lings and Red Snapper too and Silvers (Coho) on our way in. Wow what a trip!"

- Dan from California

"THANK YOU, We have told all our friends.  I want to thank you folks, and especially Captain Jon and his deckhand, Justin, for the wonderful time my family and I had on your boat, the Aurora two weeks ago. Our hearts and minds were filled with memories that will last a lifetime!!!! Things got a bit harried when we drifted over a group of feeding salmon and had up to 5 fish on at the same time!!!

Although we all caught our limits, there have been many complaints by some of my family concerning the trip. Many had experienced quite a bit of soreness in the shoulders and arms from hoisting that many fish up to the surface!!!

Thanks, again, for a wonderful time. It has been suggested that we might want to make this a regular annual vacation destination for the family. Aurora Charters will certainly be a part of any future trips that we make to Alaska!!!"

- Rudy from Indiana

"Thank you so much for making my trip to Alaska with my 9 yr. old grandson a complete success!! You are truly a great Capt. that knows his fishing and how to make his fisherman feel welcome. My hat's off to you! I wish you calm seas and clear skys always."

- Capt. Sammy Spegel

"I just wanted to let you all know what a great time me and my friends had on the Orion out with Captain Jon. I have lived in Alaska my entire life and grew up fishing all over Alaska and can honestly tell you Captain Jon provided us with one of the most fun and enjoyable fishing trips ever and an experience of a lifetime. It won't be long before we are back down in Seward out on the Orion catching huge monsters all day long. Captain Jon put us right on world class fishing all day. Again thanks for the great time."
