Alaska Fishing Yachts

M/V Perseverance

M/V Perseverance

M/V Perseverance offers a unique opportunity for fishermen in search of a remote or wilderness experience. Their trips combine the best of small ship cruising with a highly focused, all-inclusive sport fishing trip. We provide serious fishing for the serious fisherman, plus the quiet relaxation and personal service of a small ship cruise. Larry Csonka refers to the Perseverance as The most unique sportfishing operation in Alaska.

The trips are limited to eight guests with only four guests per guided fishing boat. Virtually everything is included- all you need is your fishing license! This private and personal environment is perfect for couples, families, friends and small groups. What better place to be alone with friends, family, clients or coworkers?

Each day you board one of two all-weather 26 foot aluminum Wooldridge boats with one of their experienced USCG-licensed guides for a full day of fishing. Don’t worry about getting seasick- the sheltered waters of the Inside Passage seldom become unruly and the norm is to fish on calm or glassy waters. Even if the wind does blow, your guides can always find sheltered water.

Since the yacht is your lodge, you’ll be mobile to follow the fish! No waiting for the fish to run near you, or racing to the hotspots to beat other lodge boats to the fish. Seldom do they have to run far from their floating home to find fish but more importantly, seldom will you fish near other boats!

Contact us regarding their special Spring Steelhead & Fall Silver Salmon and Halibut trips. Both opportunities are “can’t miss” for avid fishermen!
