Crackerjack should get you on the big ones and if you're going with Capt Nik on the Crackerjack Voyager, he's one of the best. There are a lot of charters that just go out for a limit of chickens and call it good but they're not one of those. Be prepared for a 3 hour ride out to where they are though.
There's a lot of things to do around Seward too besides fishing and the whale trips but sounds like if you only have two days, you'll be set if you do both, though I tell folks if you want to see whales, go on a fishing charter. You'll likely see whales too.
End of May is a great time of year too. Water has calmed down, you're more likely to see clear skies than other months and the bugs aren't too bad yet. Hope you get your big flatty but in any case, you'll have a trip to remember.

Thank you sir, I'm so glad to hear that.. My wife and I are sea people😀 3hr ride is just terrific. My better1/2 is a certified whale nut as well as a damn good fisherperson . The orcas has been on her list for a long time so we booked that day 1. Your reply got me absolutely stoked. Thanks again.

One additional suggestion if you're flying into/out of Anchorage: Take the train! We cruised out of Seward and took the train down from Anchorage and it was unbelievably beautiful. The best "shore excursion" you could do.

Oh yeah, take your catch into Apollos Restaurant after your day of fishing (you'll need to skin the halibut filets for this so tell the deckhands cleaning your fish you need some to take there). They'll cook it up and you won't be disappointed. Best beer batter halibut ever and their Mediterranean style grilled main course is great too! And the train is a great way to go. Get a seat up top in the observation car if you can.
