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.

    “Lots of things in life are fun, but FISHING is way out in front of whatever is in second place!


When Jerald Davenport of Murray, Utah landed his lunker 332 pound halibut, little did he know that he had caught the largest fish ever to be entered in the ten year history of the Homer Jackpot Derby until it was officially weighed in.
Davenport's 332-pounder was caught when fishing on the sport-fishing charter vessel
Halibut Hunter with skipper Captain Bruce Warner.

If no larger fish is entered by Labor Day, Davenport's big fish will win the Homer Derby jackpot of approximately $30,000.

Davenport has been fishing with Capt. Warner for ten years and has landed several fish over 100 pounds, but this one hit "like a nuclear sub," he said.

Homer Jackpot Derby History

Over the past history of the Homer Jackpot Derby the average weight of the winning fish is 320.8 pounds. The weight range of the winners was from 262.0 to 376.0 pounds.

Don't Forget to buy a Derby Ticket!
$10 can Win $50,000

Our Long-Range, Big-Fish Charters Trips are the Same Price !
You Can Pay More Elsewhere, But You Won't Get Any Better Fishing !


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 six-fishermen halibut charters are REAL FISHING TRIPS !


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.
It's the high cost of fuel that is driving up charter fares. Fuel is our biggest expense

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!
