Cook Inlet waters are insanely productive, and well known as the halibut capital of the world! We can send you fishing out of Ninilchik, Anchor Point, or Homer on a quest for the famous “barn door” halibut that make this area one of the most popular halibut fisheries there is. All gear is included on these fully guided trips, and the limit is 2 halibut per person per day. We book 6 pack charters, meaning you’ll have a max of 6 people per boat, giving you plenty of room to do battle with arguably the most delicious fish in the ocean. Halibut fishing is very productive from April through September, with April and May providing opportunity for king/halibut combos.


How many birds can you kill with one stone? A fly out fishing trip combines incredible fishing, amazing wildlife viewing opportunities, and miraculous sight seeing all in the same trip! Depart from a local lake and fly across the inlet to one of several incredible fisheries that can be accessed by float plane. These trips include the flight, your guide, and all equipment needed, and flights are anywhere from 20 to 45 minutes each way, depending upon your location of choice. June & July bring massive sockeye runs, while August & September bring aggressive runs of silver salmon.


For anglers looking to make the most of their day on the water, a saltwater combo is the perfect choice. You can choose to fish for silver salmon, halibut, rock fish, and ling in Prince William Sound out of the port of Seward, or a halibut/king combo in Kachemak Bay out of the port of Homer. No matter which choice you decide on, you’ll be surrounded by mountains that seem to shoot up out of the ocean, many marine wildlife viewing opportunities, and lots of fish!


For the sight seeing adventurer, this cruise out of Seward takes you into the heart of the Kenai Fjords National Park, and is one of the most popular tours in Alaska for good reason. You’ll likely see whales, sea lions, sea otters, mountain goats, and hundreds of bird species along the way. This tour is fully guided and educational with your captain and park ranger pointing out interesting features all along the way. This tour is a great change of pace to include in your fishing & lodging package.


If you’d just like to kick back and relax for the day without the worry of catching, this is the choice for you. Float a wild section of the Kenai or Kasilof River in a raft or drift boat with a knowledgeable guide, eat, drink, and just kick back and take in the scenery of the breathtaking Kenai Peninsula.
