Port of Homer's Safe Harbor
All of our charter boats depart from and return to the safety of Homer Harbor.
Both Ninilchick, AK and Anchor Point, AK charter boats have NO SAFE HARBOR from which to depart from and return to. They both launch their charter boats from off the beach into the surf.

COME ABOARD FOR
ALASKA FANTASTIC FISHING CAPTAINS & BOATS
Our Charter Boat Captains are all USCG Licensed & Insured , and are all well seasoned and experienced on our local waters of Kachemak Bay and Cook Inlet . Our Charter Boats are 28 foot to 31 foot Deluxe Cabin Cruisers, six-fishermen vessels, with all electronics, and required USCG Safety Equipment. Our boats are non-smoking.
We HIGHLY DISCOURAGE smoking and drinking on our boats for safety reasons, and purposes of our other client's consideration on a 'shared' charter. There is a little more latitude allowed on an 'exclusive' boat charter all to your own group.
Advance Reservations are Necessary , and walk-ons can rarely be accommodated, because thousands of visitors to Alaska, from all fifty states and many foreign countries, come during the three-month period of June, July & August when we have great summer weather and Fantastic Fishing.
BEFORE you travel to Alaska during June, July or August BE SURE TO MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS IN ADVANCE for fishing & lodging. Planning your trip well in advance is the key to a successful Alaska Vacation. Last minute trips have very limited choices , and you may very likely be 'shut-out' because of NO VACANCY.
Because of the unforeseeable circumstances of your scheduled charter trip being canceled due to a bad weather day or a mechanical breakdown of a charter boat, it is best to schedule your fishing trip for at least two days of fishing. In the case of either uncontrollable event, you will receive a 100 percent refund of your reservation deposit for your canceled trip.

Plus, as an added FREE BONUS, you get a DAY OF FUN and the experience of catching your own fish which you don't get at the fish-market. What other recreational activity is there where you bring home a VALUE EQUAL TO the cost of participating? WHAT A DEAL!!!
"In Alaska the fish are so BIG we don't have to lie about their size!"
When you fish with us you can release the smaller fish and keep the largest fish you catch each day. We know where all the good fishing holes are.

MAKE RESERVATIONS EARLY
ADVANCE RESERVATIONS for charters are required, because when coming to Homer without making reservations in advance it is very OFTEN IMPOSSIBLE to find a walk-on vacancy. Most Fishing Reservations are taken from January thru May, but we book all year around. Earlier reservations have a wider choice of available dates. BOOK EARLY! Multiple-Day charter reservations are suggested because of variable weather and sea conditions. We do not go on STORMY days. Your DEPOSIT is REFUNDED if your trip is cancelled. Reservations are TENTATIVE until a 50 % deposit is received. GUARANTEED RESERVATIONS are CONFIRMED by mail. Deposits are 100% refundable with a 60-day CANCELLATION NOTICE or if we can re-sell the trip. Your RESERVATION DEPOSIT is INSURED by BOND to $50,000.

HALF-DAY and THREE-QUARTER-DAY HALIBUT CHARTERS
These are short-range charters which are MOSTLY A BOAT-RIDE out-to and back-from very limited-time fishing trips. These large-boats carry a CROWD OF FIFTEEN OR MORE PEOPLE, and are GREAT FOR LITTLE CHILDREN. Mostly small fish are kept on these boats because there is NO TIME TO RELEASE SMALL FISH and keep larger fish as is done on full-day six-fishermen boats.
Our 'full-day' 6-pac boats with a 6:00 am departure is the preferred fishing charter. We welcome first-time and novice fishermen. You pay only for the seats you occupy. We fill the rest. .
As it is in general, the cheapest price IS NOT A GOOD criteria for selecting a charter.
The difference between lower priced charters and our price is they may add-on a fuel surcharge
to the price of their charter fare after you book your reservation.
We Guarantee our Charter Price to You at the Time of Your Booking!
We are a 32 year member of the Homer Chamber of Commerce,
We do not consider your charter fare spent the moment you step on the boat, but rather at the end of a good day of fishing. We do not keep a percentage of your charter deposit on weather cancelled days, but rather refund 100% of your deposit. Our goal is to provide you with the most pleasurable and memorable experience possible so you will want to return and fish with us again, and so you will recommend us to your friends. Word-of-mouth personal referrals have been our most effective advertising. Our business reputation over the years has been built on this premise. You will be glad you booked your charter with us because you are covered by our Exclusive Charter Warranty.
