Nordic Quest Ready for 2015 Alaska Charter Season

IMG_0857In two weeks, the Nordic Quest comes out of dry storage at Anacortes and will be provisioned for her trip north to Juneau. My crew is excited about our spring trip and we have lots of adventure planned along the route plus some serious halibut and king salmon fishing once we reach Alaskan waters.

It is wonderful to see the response for bookings for the 2015 season. We are nearly completely booked but there is still availability in September after the 5th. This is a great time for silver salmon and halibut fishing close to Juneau and Glacier Bay National Park does not require permits after the 1st of September. Usually the humpback whales are still hanging around and it is not uncommon to witness bubble feeding late summer.

This winter while the Nordic Quest was in dry storage, I had the opportunity to have North Harbor Diesel and Marine Services Group go through all of the mechanical systems and electronics and the boat is in like new condition. I think she is one of the nicest bareboat charters available in SE Alaska, particularly in the larger size range.
