Meet your local captain

Captain Alec Simmons

Born and raised in Ketchikan, professional sea Captain Alec Simmons grew up fishing salmon and halibut along these beautiful rugged coastlines since he can remember – once you start, you're hooked for life!  

Fishing and hunting are a way of life up here in Southeast Alaska – a generational pastime and everyone has a boat or knows someone who does.  There isn't a better way to witness firsthand how the locals live and to truly understand why we call this slice of heaven our special home.

Reeling in and successfully landing a restless king salmon or putting up the forearm fight for that colossal halibut victory is simply exhilarating to say the least!  Whether you're an experienced fisherman or a complete novice, Sims Sea Charters will show you the ropes as our service and professionalism will certainly exceed your expectations compared to any other tour in town.

More About Captain Alec Simmons

  Capt. Simmons grew up working for his father as a deckhand on the fishing vessel the K’ Sea~Ann and was taught how to navigate the local Ketchikan waterways and to handle the unpredictable area weather patterns with precise accuracy.  

Alec has a true passion for people, his community, local history, native culture, hunting and exploring the vast terrains of the Inside Passage.  His father's fishing stories have always inspired him and now he loves to share his own tales along the way too.  

There's a fair chance you'll have a few memories to relive too once you're back home preparing a meal in the kitchen with loved ones and enjoying your fresh Alaskan catch at the dinner table together.

This is the real Ketchikan – your private tour of our neck of the woods.  Welcome to God's country and we look forward to serving you and your family in the summer of 2019!
