Captain Dianne M. Dubuc

Your Captain
The owner / operator of Alaska Saltwater Charters is Dianne M. Dubuc, lifelong Alaskan and licensed USCG master. Dianne has extensive experience in many of Alaska's maritime trades including 9 years spent plying Alaska's waters as a Merchant Marine. Dianne has just upgraded her Standards for Training, Certification, and Watch Keeping endorsement as required by the US Coast Guard for high tonnage licenses. The STCW is an international convention designed to insure that mariners holding this rating practice the highest safety standards. She has fished commercially for halibut, bottom fish and ran the “Florette C.” as a commercial salmon troll vessel before shifting her focus to sportfishing and starting Alaska Saltwater Charters. Dianne helped pioneer the feeder king fishery in Homer and now has single-handedly used her extensive knowledge to develop a viable feeder fishery in Resurrection Bay. Dianne loves nothing more than seeing her guests enjoy the feel of a king on the end of their rod and she will give 100% to see that her guests have the best possible experience on the absolute best vessel in the fleet. She loves catching fish more than her guests!
The Flagship of Alaska Saltwater Charters is the F/V Florette C., a 53' x 17' professional salmon trolling vessel with spacious accommodations for up to six passengers. The Florette C. utilizes state-of-the-art fish finding and navigational equipment:
  • American Pioneer sonar & bottom sounders
  • Nobletec electronic plotting chart system with Northstar GPS
  • Furuno 7040D 48 mile ranger radar
  • A wide assortment of VHF, CB, & SSB radios
  • Furuno weather fax

Our safety gear far exceeds charter industry standards. Upkeep of the Florette C. is continuous and the vessel is exceptionally clean and attractive throughout. We have a full bathroom and laundry facilities. The vessel is well insulated and our guests stay comfortably warm all year round.
