Welcome aboard

Want ultimate freedom in fishing? Look no further than an Alaska charter with the Maggie Sea! But listen up, folks, because most boats are only 27’ or 28’ long and can get crowded with six people. Buyer, beware, my fishy friends! There’s normally not enough room in the stern of the ship. Anglers are elbow-to-elbow, and the interior of the cabin can feel claustrophobic. Trust us, you don't want to be elbow-to-elbow with your mates all day or get stuck in a claustrophobic cabin.

Step aboard the 40' Maggie Sea and sail into the lap of luxury. Designed for seafarers seeking a smooth ride, this custom cabin cruiser boasts a roomy interior with plenty of space to stretch out and relax.

Escape the ordinary

The Maggie Sea is optimized for fishing charters and wildlife viewing. She has a large open deck with panels that can be made weatherproof. These clear plastic walls can be zipped and snapped into place in minutes. There’s a V-berth forward, and a couch that converts into a bunk in the main cabin. And of course a marine head. The Maggie Sea is not a luxury boat, but instead is a roomy, working boat. Our clients really like our setup.

The Maggie Sea offers fishing, wildlife viewing, and photography charters for up to four people. We'll cruise through pristine waterways, with unparalleled access to whales and wildlife. We'll visit the best locations to view fjords, waterfalls, icebergs and glaciers. You'll see amazing scenic wonders on wilderness hikes and on the water in our motorized 16' skiff. There simply is no better way to experience the Alaskan wilderness.
