Awesome trip, we caught 2-halibut each and the bonus was seeing whales, sea-lions and of course puffins. We will be back in 2009.

Built in 1998 by SeaSport, the Provider is a 27’ Seamaster version; this vessel has a raised cabin for enhanced visibility and more seating positions. Seaport’s are built in the Pacific Northwest at Bellingham, WA.
One look at SeaSport’s functional lines, enclosed cabins, and large self-bailing cockpits tells you that these boats are built for serious fishing. SeaSport has also made sure that every boat it makes retains the flexibility needed in a family oriented recreational craft, combining safety with unbeatable performance that you can depend on.
Our vessels are extremely well maintained. We dry dock every year to upgrade our systems, repaint the decks and do interior maintenance. We are the only charter company with year-round employees who perform the maintenance. Most companies do a splash and dash and hope to get thru the season. We plan our maintenance schedule to eliminate the hopes of getting thru the season. Our captains are the first on the water (April) and the last off (Late Sept).
