 "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."

F/V Outer Limits

Captain Qualification: USCG 200-ton Masters 



I am one of the owners of HOC. I currently hold a 200-ton masters license and still love to drive my boat. I have been blessed to have good health and great employees and partners over the years. My goal across our product line continues to be to safely make lifelong memories for customers. I still wake up excited to plan new products, see new places, and meet new people. My two children, Annalynn (17) and Ashton (14), are truly the “A” team, thank you Lord! Two things many people don’t know about me... I am a Canadian immigrant and speak fluent Canadian, and I attend bible study early Tuesday mornings. God bless!

Hailing from Atlanta, Clay left the newsdesk and the Lower 48 behind to join us year-round in Homer. When he's not out on the water slaying fish, he's working on his hobbies of photography and writing, or just enjoying the good life together with his wife, son, and dog named Turtle. Join Captain Clay on the Diamond Cape, where longer-range, two-species trips are the name of the game.
