 "Kicked Some Hali-Butt!"

"Although the salmon and halibut seasons are winding down our guide and captain, Travis, managed to find us King salmon and Halibut. This was an extra full-day charter. We left at 8am and returned around 6pm. Our guide was determined not to send anyone on our boat home without fish. Such a great group of people including the office staff and chief filleting specialist!!"

"Best Day Ever!"

“We chartered a boat to go Halibut fishing in Homer Alaska for the whole family (12).

Captain Billy and Deck Hand Grace were amazing. We never had any reason to want for anything.

The first fish in the boat within a minute of arrival at the first fishing spot was 59+ inches and over 100 lbs.

That set the tone for the day. We caught the limit for the boat and had so much fun. 

Great family outing. Great day on the water.

If you want to go fishing out of Homer, this is the company to go with!

"Highly Recommend!"

"It's 4th of July and our group of 8 went to halibut fishing with Captain Nick and deckhand Danielle of the SeaHawk. It is the first time ocean fishing for many of us. Nick and Danielle tried very hard making sure everyone is taken care of. Nick took us to two fishing spots and hooked fish right away in both locations. You can imagine the excitement and chaos when multiple fishes on the hook ;-) We had a lot of fun! On the way back, Danielle single-handedly filleted all the fishes for several hours. We were so impressed! I highly recommend Homer Ocean Charters if you are looking for great fishing experience at Homer."

Bio:  Travis fished for halibut the first time he came to Homer to visit his grandparents at the age of 11. From that day until today he knew that was what he was born to do.

He says his favorite things about his job are, meeting new and interesting people every day, the palpable excitement of catching a huge fish, showing off the abundant wildlife that inhabits the area, and working around the most epic scenery on God's good earth. He feels blessed to get paid to show people this beautiful place and help them experience Alaska to the fullest
