Overview

On your trip to Skagway, consider a salmon fishing charter with Captain Craig McCormick on the White Wing. Captain Craig will take you to the best salmon fishing and halibut fishing spots so that you can catch the a King Salmon and see incredible wildlife and scenery. We welcome Alaska cruise ship passengers looking for an unforgettable Skagway shore excursion or tour. We also offer Skagway salmon fishing charters, wildlife cruises and scenic tours to travellers visiting Skagway independent of an Alaskan cruise. On your trip to Skagway, consider going out for a few hours with Captain Craig. Be sure to bring your camera because it's going to be awesome!

Went up to Skagway in June, looking forward to catching king salmon as advertised. Knew something was amiss when I asked Craig where we could process our catch as was told there wasn't anyplace in Skagway... not a big deal because there was no catch!...More

All King salmon must be OVER 28" to retain and have processed, we did catch fish that charter, but they were undersized King. Weather and tide conditions effect the catch for all fishing trips. I always do my best to catch fish on every charter
