Captain and Crew




Captain Nate Smith:
Nate is a US Coast Guard Licensed 100-ton Master. He spent his younger years on mountain streams and lakes growing up in Montana before moving to the Seattle area. He then started a twelve year career in the crabbing industry out of Dutch Harbor and Russia in the Bering sea. This is how he discovered the beauty and ruggedness of Alaska and its why he eventually moved here nine years ago. He has been working on charter boats out of Seward for six years. The vast amount of time he has spent on the water gives him the experience, knowledge and safety skills to ensure a safe, enjoyable, and fun-filled day.


Captain Eric Higbee:
Captain Eric Higbee was born and raised in Alaska just outside Seward, in Moose Pass. He first got the itch to fish while in the second grade when his father bought a charter for the both of them and young Eric hauled in a one-hundred twenty-five pound halibut. Eric has worked a variety of positions on several different vessels in the Seward Charter Fishing Fleet for eight seasons. The last three seasons Eric has been making his own decisions about where to go and what to use since he was promoted to Captain.

Ever since he caught that first 125 lb halibut, he has dreamed of bringing that same enjoyment to others, and that dream is being fulfilled here at Alaska Coastal Ventures. Eric has been involved in some amazing catches while working with other companies and we were thrilled that he brought that knowledge and success with him to Alaska Coastal Ventures, in 2007. He had a great season last year and we expect many more productive seasons to come. He is a customer favorite and clients are eager to return for more of his successful trips. His enthusiasm, experience and character are why here at Alaska Coastal Ventures, we are simply proud to have him aboard.
