In Sitka, we did halibut fishing. My husband loves fishing, and I tagged along. This turned out to be quite bad. We were a ship of 4 people and the captain. The sea was very rough, the air cold. Due to bad luck, our ship’s anchor was tangled with a nearby salmon trolling boat, causing us to lose 1 hour of fishing time. Due to this mishap, the captain had to change locations to avoid the salmon boat. The whole boat ended up with only 2 halibuts (both caught by my husband). On the other hand, the other halibut boat with Celebrity people on, about 600 hundred feet away, caught so many fish that they went back early. Fishing is always a gamble. Unless you are really a deep sea fishing enthusiast, I would not recommend the halibut fishing. I think we should have done the sportfishing for salmon instead. It was shorter, in closed waters, and I heard from a lady who was on it that they caught so many fish. Also, we barely had time to see Sitka since all time were spent fishing.
