Salmon Sports Fishing Adventure, wasn't.#550A. Filthy head, and cabin area. Purchased excursion for salmon fishing, arrival was told was catch and release only. Had to stop fishing early to assist a broke-down boat. Poor boat handling. Ship gave us our money back. Visited Red Dog, great fun as usual.

Skagway, Alaska
