Captain-Bill-Moore
Captain Bill Moore

Since 2007 Captain Bill has guided Saltwater Charter and run the water taxi boats here at Miller’s!

He’s energetic, fun, and quick with a joke or rock solid fishing advice. Bill operates all of the boats here at Miller’s, and typically runs our full day fishing charters on the Thomasea or Fox Willie. A proud father, Capt. Bill winters in Florida running charter boats and truly lives the dream guiding clients year round!

Captain Chance Miller

The son of captains Mike and Sherrie Miller, Chance got his Captain’s license at the age of 18, and was deck handing prior to that.
He is a lifelong Alaskan and was actually born right here in Seward! Prior to settling down, he spent his winters working on research boats both in the Arctic and Antarctic as a Marine Technician and Able Seaman. Chance has spent every summer of his life working on or running boats out of Seward specifically, without exception.
Now a proud co-owner at Miller’s Landing, Chance loves to guide clients both on Sport Fishing charters and sightseeing from the Water Taxi boats whenever possible. When he’s not on the water, he’s trying to keep the fleet running from shore and lends whatever advice he can to the other top notch guides running his boats!

Captain-Mike-Miller
Captain Mike Miller

A lifelong Alaskan whose family homesteaded here in the 1950’s,  Mike has been a local guide, fisherman, and marine engineer all his life.

Captain Mike is a 3rd generation fisherman and one of the original fishing guides in the Seward area. He and his wife and business partner Sherrie are the original founders of Miller’s Landing, est. 1982. He retired from guiding in 2016, but still mentors the boat crews and can often be found on the grounds lending wisdom and expert advice.

If you have been fishing with Mike he’s no longer guiding, but you can usually find him at the landing to chat, or go instead with his son Capt. Chance!

Capt Paul and a butterflied Silver
Captain Paul Stephens

Capt. Paul “Bunyan” Stephens started at Miller’s Landing working on the outside operations crew. 

He worked his way up to deckhand, and got his captains license after crewing with Capt. Dustin, Capt. Bill, and Capt. Chance over the years. He was immediately successful running his own boat, and can be found driving the Salty, Michael A, and Fox Willie, but primarily operates the Thomasea for full day charter.

Paul is easy going and quick to laugh, but takes fishing very seriously, and gets results! He’s well traveled, and well read. Ask him about his time in space camp!

Captain Micah Kauffman

Captain Micah runs our half day fishing charters and occasionally will do water taxi runs.

Micah grew up on a farm in the great state of Delaware! He has had a passion for Alaska since he was a kid and finally had an opportunity to work in Ketchikan for a few summers as a deck hand…where he fell in love with boats and being on the water. He decided to get his captain’s license as soon as possible so that he could make this passion a career! Micah commonly operates the Avery H running half day fishing charters and can also be seen driving the Salty on Water Taxi runs.

Micah is fun, adventurous and detail oriented! If you get the chance to have him as your captain you are sure to have a blast!

Captain Tom DuHoux

Captain Tom started his adventure as a captain in 2007 on his own boat the Triple H. He worked together with the Millers and crew, and now operates some of Millers Landing boats. But usually runs the Avery H on half day charters. He has been working here for a hefty 12 years. When not fishing in Alaska, he’s fishing or hunting in South Dakota where he and his wife Maria reside.

Tyler King

Tyler is super duper stoked to be spending his first summer in Alaska, with the wonderful crew and guests at Miller’s Landing, no less. Born and raised in Maryland, Tyler studied Environmental Science and Policy in undergrad at UMD. Post graduation, Tyler promptly found his way to Taipei, Taiwan where he taught English; after returning home he traversed abroad again this time to Berlin, Germany. Tyler enjoys travel and meeting people from all walks of life but his true passion is Zoology, so ask him any animal questions you might have on your next trip! When not guiding tours you’re likely to find Tyler rollerblading around town in Seward or hanging out with the rest of the crew at Miller’s Landing.
