Where To Meet?

At the Crazy Shack on the harbor front next to the Harbormaster building no later than 6:45am for check in.
Please make sure you are on time. Parking is available in the parking lot in front of the Crazy Shack.

Someone with our crew will meet you there for a 7:00am departure.

* PLEASE NOTE: Our fishing vessel departs the Whittier Harbor roughly around 7:00am and return to the harbor between 5pm and 7pm daily. Please be prepared and have your ID and fishing license on hand prior to boarding the boats.

Late Policy

Failure to arrive on time will result in a boat group decision, made by other paying customers, on whether or not they are willing to wait to depart the harbor. This is to ensure fairness to all other paying customers who booked for a full day’s trip. Arriving late results in time away from fishing for others that arrived on time. There are NO refunds should you not arrive on time. NO EXCEPTIONS.

How We Fish

We do not typically target the 28″ Halibut. We try to target Halibut that are above average size so everyone on the boat catches something better than the status quo. It is not normal to catch Halibut under 28″ where we target larger Halibut. This requires us to fish differently than other boats you might have been on in the past.

We cannot and will not PARTY fish. Party fishing means that you would be fishing for a boat limit of fish and not an individual limit. It is against the law to do so and we do not allow it on our vessels. If you choose to fish with us, the normal routine is that once you catch a keeper size Halibut, you stop fishing for bottom fish until we move to a different location to target other species. Typically, when you fish on a spot there is only so many keeper sized Halibut down there and if you have already caught a keeper and continue to fish on bottom, most likely you will catch another Halibut. However, we will have to release it because of the PARTY fishing rule. Then what happens is somebody on the boat stands a greater chance of going home empty handed. In order to be fair to everyone, we fish like this in ALL of our mixed group trips. If you do not like this idea, then Crazy Rays Adventures, LLC probably isn’t the right charter for you.

Now, if you would like to do something different than our normal routine, we are definitely up for that, it’s more convenient to have all 6 or 12 anglers on the boat of the same party (whole boat reservation), this needs to be discussed at time of booking and in the morning with your Captain so that he can lay out the day accordingly. For any questions, please feel free to contact our booking office, Brenda at 907-315-5382, or Captain Crazy Ray at 907-355-3182.

Fishing Charters From Whittier, Alaska

To get here you will travel The Portage Glacier Highway through Anton Anderson Memorial Tunnel, the longest (2.5 miles) highway tunnel in North America which is an amazing experience. The trip to Whittier alone is spectacular let alone the sights and wildlife you will see on one of our Whittier fishing charters.

The port of Whittier is our jump off point into Alaska’s Prince William Sound where we take you to fish halibut, salmon and rockfish. If fishing halibut is not your thing we also offer eco tours to see the amazing sights, wild life, whales, and birds in the wilds of Prince William sound. Plus we now offer outfitted (unguided) spring black bear hunts as well as sea duck hunts. There are also many other great things to do in Whitter, Alaska as well while you are here. We hope you will choose Crazy Rays Adventures as your fishing or wildlife guides in Whittier.

Whittier, AK is also home to a huge variety of marine mammals such as Humpback, Minke, Fin, and Killer Whales. The town is located in the western corner of Prince William Sound that is second to none for breathtaking views and abundant Glaciers. Our waters are typically calmer than other Ports as well because we have the option to fish inside protected area’s meaning less cancellations for weather and less chance for sea sickness.
