Why drive 2 1/2 hours to Seward or 6 hours to Homer when the magic of Prince William Sound is only one hour away from Anchorage?
Come experience the magic with Saltwater Excursions. Halibut and salmon fishing, helicopter flight-seeing tours, wildlife and glacier tours; we can do it all! We are Alaskan owned and operated.
We operate our vessel out of the Whittier Small Boat Harbor and our helicopter out of the Whittier Airport, both located at the head of Passage Canal. Whittier, Alaska is the gateway access point to Prince William Sound. Whittier is the closest port to Anchorage, a very scenic 60 mile drive south on the Seward Highway.
Prince William Sound offers scenic beauty and calmer waters than you will find out of Seward, AK or Homer, AK. Whether it is from the air or the water, Orca Whales, Humpback Whales, Mountain Goats, Sea Lions, Sea Otters, Dahl’s Porpoise and Bald Eagles are just some of what you will encounter. Prince William Sound is a mecca for wildlife and offers a variety of different saltwater fish.
We operate a 26 foot Offshore Duckworth Vessel powered by twin Yamaha outboard engines. Our Garmin electronics are state of the art. The M/V Saltwater Addiction includes a heated cabin and a private marine head.
We are widely recognized for outstanding personalized service to both Alaskans and sportsmen of other states and countries. We cater to the novice as well as the experienced angler.
Our Enstrom “Falcon” F-28F helicopter is nicknamed for it’s sleek aerodynamic styling. It seats three passengers and has a turbocharged Textron Lycoming engine. The turbocharged engine gives this helicopter outstanding high altitude performance. Enstrom’s reputation for safety has set the standard for light helicopters.
Whether coming off the cruise ship or just stopping by Whittier for a look-see, a helicopter tour should not be missed. We have 2 different tours to choose from. Experience the magic of Prince William Sound like never before.
