We at Crackerjack Charters hope everyone is doing well and adjusting to the changes as a result of COVID-19. We fully anticipate operating this summer season, with a slight delay. At this time we anticipate running trips beginning May 29, 2020. We are currently working on our vessels to get them in shape for the fishing season (with some major modifications to the Crackerjack) and look forward to bending a rod with our repeat and new customers alike.

PLEASE  NOTE: In regards to COVID-19

We are in full compliance with both the CDC and State of Alaska guidelines in terms of COVID-19 protocols and have made the appropriate changes to our operations to ensure compliance. Community Workforce Protective Plans, as directed by the CDC and State of Alaska, have been developed for our vessels, crews, and passengers. We will abide by all Federal and State mandates/guidelines as directed in a timely manner to ensure the safety of our valued customers and crew. Please contact us if you have any questions. As you are well aware, guidelines and mandates are constantly changing as we work through these difficult times.

Please be safe and we look forward to seeing you soon
