The Charter Vessel HiTime

The Charter Vessel HiTime

The new generation of the C/V HiTime is a 28 foot welded aluminum vessel powered by twin state of the art 250hp Yamaha outboards. She cruises at near 30 mph, meaning more time spent sightseeing and fishing and less time running.

Creature comforts are also important, and the HiTime is outfitted to make sure you will be comfortable. The cabin is heated and is equipped with a full bathroom. Seating in the cabin comfortably accommodates six passengers and the crew of two. The galley area includes a sink with fresh running water, and there is always hot coffee in the pump pot.

As a passenger carrying vessel, safety is our top priority. The HiTime is equipped with state of the art navigation and communication equipment including GPS, radar, chart plotter, depth sounder and 2 VHF radios. Life jackets for all passengers and a throwable safety device are always onboard.

The Crew

We believe the old saying "a business is only as good as it's people" is especially true in a people-oriented business like ours. Catching fish and appreciating the natural beauty of the area are part of the experience, but don't in themselves make the outing a delightful, memorable one. Friendly, polite, helpful, knowledgeable and safe personnel make all the difference.

Captain Toni Wisner, the former owner and Captain

Captain Toni Wisner Toni retired from the Charter business in 2015 and sold her business to Captain Mike Bonfils. Captain Mike also owns and operates Big Jim’s Charters in Juneau and has been friends with Captain Toni for the last ten years. Captain Mike is a avid sport fisherman and spends all his spare time fishing. After the Alaska sport fishing season is over, Captain Mike travels to Los Barriles, Mexico, to fish for big game fish. Los Barriles is located on the Sea of Cortez near Cabo San Lucas, known for its Marlin and Tuna fishing. Captain Mike has Captains and crew who run his boats at Big Jim’s Charters and he is currently the Captain of Hi Time, the sport fishing boat used here at Hi Time Charters.

Deckhand: All deckhands are required to be on a random drug testing program, the same for all Captains taking clients out for hire on fishing charters or Whale watching and sightseeing. They are also required to be trained in First Aid and CPR and must show current certification every two years, just like the Captains. We try to hire locals that have grown up in the Juneau area and have loved to fish with their parents. We normally hire crew that is off from High School or College for the summer. We are open to both genders and look for friendly and courteous people. We offer training as a deckhand that can lead to a job of Captain if they want to make a carrier out of fishing and sightseeing.
