Guided salmon and bottom fishing charter trips in the beautiful San Juan Islands of Washington State. There is no way to describe the excitement of putting folks on their first king salmon, giant lingcod, or huge halibut. The smile is from ear to ear, you can almost see their hearts pounding through their chests, and their hands shake for an hour afterward in response to the adrenaline. The stories get told, and the memories last a life time.

Liked the way you explained the different types and how and why. As a newbie fisherwoman it helped me understand. Trip was easy going and lots of fun!

We all had a great time! Captain Tyler was wonderful. Very professional, knowledgeable, personable and helpful. Although we didn't catch any keepers, it was beautiful and a great experience. We would use Highliner Charters again.

What an amazing experience! Classy operation all around! Brett put us right on the fish and is an expert on how to catch salmon. I'm already planning a return trip 10/10 would highly recommend!

Its always disappointing to spend the day fishing and come up with no fish at the end! However, this is no fault of Highliner Charters. Our captain, Brett, took us out for 6 hours, he took us to many fishing spots, and we had the...More

Too bad there are only five stars, because our Highliner Charters experience was really first rate. Captain Brett knew all the right places to go, when to go there, and how to fish it. He runs a great business and has a passion for fishing....More

We had a party of 5 and were very comfortable. It cost about 1100 for the boat and then the cost of the 1-day fishing license. We gave about $100 tip to the Captain and his mate. It was very much worth it. There are... More
