We offer Charter Fishing Halibut, Salmon, and Combo Fishing Trips in Seward, Alaska!

The ultimate deep-sea Alaska fishing charter adventure awaits you when you fish with us. Not only will you be fishing Alaska's most productive long-range fishing grounds, but you will also be doing it with the company that pioneered the entire region.

We will take you to the outer limits of Seward's richest sport-fishing grounds. Our vessels' range and speed enable us to venture beyond areas exhausted by heavy sport-fishing pressure. Targeted species include halibut, lingcod, rockfish, silver, and king salmon, and salmon sharks.

The Boat: 53' Legacy

53' Legacy, built by Delta Marine Industries, is the pride of the fleet and outfitted with the most serious sport-fisherman in mind. These fast, powerful, long-range fishing machines are powered by twin Caterpillar 660 hp diesel engines and are capable of speeds in excess of 25 knots. They are designed to withstand the inclement conditions that are sometimes associated with the Alaska Gulf Coast. These vessels are inspected by the U.S. Coast Guard annually and have always met or exceeded their stringent requirements.

The boat comes appointed with everything required for a safe and pleasurable trip, including comfortable cabin furnishings, a complete array of sophisticated electronic navigation and communication equipment, state-of-the-art fish finding equipment, and all the necessary emergency/survival gear. Legacy is immaculately clean and strictly maintained.

Captain: Steve Babinec

Captain Steve Babinec, co-owner of the company and skipper of the 53' Legacy is a life-long Alaskan. Captain Steve also is credited with his efforts to establish Seward as a top fishing destination. He is an avid fisherman who is licensed by the United States Coast Guard as Master of Vessels up to 100 Gross Tons. With over 30 years of boating and fishing experience in Alaska waters, Captain Steve has proven himself to be an innovator of halibut fishing technique and terminal tackle design. His knowledge of the tides and currents of this region has made him a consistent top producer of some of the largest catches to hit the Seward docks.

Captain Steve has a competitive drive that makes him go further and fish harder than most area captains. He is credited with constantly pioneering new halibut hotspots and techniques.

He specializes in hunting for big halibut and is also regarded as the best combo fisherman in the harbor, oftentimes limiting out his entire boat with halibut, salmon, lingcod, and rockfish - all in a single day.
