    Default Seward vs. Deep Creek

    Thanks guys. Can anyone tell me why Seward costs so much more than Deep Creek? Are the Seward operators used to Cruise ships full of wealthy types, Vs. Deep Creek is catering to locals? How far out are the Seward operators boating? Homer isn't in the equation as from what I remember it was a 2-3 hour one-way boat ride. Back to Seward Vs. Deep Creek...does fish size have anything to do with it? I'm just trying to make the best choice when I come up to take my Dad fishing. While I lived there 30 years, I lead a very sheltered life running on the Yentna River.

    A lot of the Seward charters go a couple hours out around the point and into Prince William Sound/Montague Island area, so it's a lot longer haul then a twenty minute jaunt off the beach of Deep Creek. I imagine all that gas plays a role in the pricing, although I don't know if there's a difference in price between a full day of salmon fishing in the bay and a full day of halibut fishing 2-3 hours away....

    Basically, if you're going for halibut out of Seward, expect a fairly long ride. They do seem to get consistently large fish out there, though.
