Every ultra-luxury Seabourn cruise is a culinary treat, but its latest dining experience 'reels in' anyone hungry for fishing action as well as the taste of fresh-from-the-water seafood.
'Enjoy Your Catch' is an exclusive experience for Seabourn guests to hook a winner and savor your own personal catch on board during a Seabourn Ultimate Alaska voyage.
The experience is now available in conjunction with select, guide-led excursions in the beauty of the Alaskan wilderness. Hopefully, your fishing expedition is a success, and when you return to the Seabourn Sojourn, your fresh catch will be prepared by the ship's culinary team for you to enjoy in The Restaurant or The Colonnade. Imagine yourself in these angling adventures**:
- Halibut Fishing at Icy Straight Point – Board a modern cabin cruiser and embark on the ultimate fishing excursion in one of the hottest fishing spots known only to locals. The waters of Icy Strait are teeming with halibut, and an abundance of marine life and brilliant photo opportunities will be waiting.
- Salmon Fishing at Ketchikan – Board a modern fishing boat and head to a nearby salmon fishing locale in the sheltered waters of Clover Passage, while keeping an eye – and a camera – out for eagles, whales, seals, sea lions and other wildlife along the way.
- Salmon Fishing at Sitka – The waters of Sitka Sound are swimming with an abundance of king, silver, chum and pink salmon, and sport fishing in the region is one of the best-kept secrets in Southeast Alaska. Combined with dramatic views, marine wildlife, and excitement as running as deep as the waters, this half-day salmon fishing adventure is not to be missed.
- Fishing the Inside Passage at Wrangell – Engage in world-class Pacific Ocean fishing along the Inside Passage amid a backdrop of spectacular scenery, with calm waters harboring a multitude of sought-after species including salmon and halibut. Leave it to the captain to choose the best chance of catch based on seasonality and word of the day.
