Magic Man Charters,
Petersburg, Alaska

Alaska offers some of the most spectacular saltwater sport fishing in the world! Magic Man Charters is a full service fishing charter operating out of Petersburg, Alaska since 1990.

Located in Southeast Alaska on the Inside Passage, Petersburg offers some of the best sport fishing for Salmon and Halibut anywhere in Alaska! We do our fishing in the protected bays, sounds and straits around Petersburg in calm inside waters that are a safe, comfortable experience for the serious fisherman, or the less practiced family group.

"Capt. Magic" is a 32-ft aluminum catamaran with an enclosed, heated cabin, inside seating for six, and stand-up head facilities with a full walk-around deck, which provides plenty of room for fishing. Learn more about Captain Stan Malcom.
