Homer, Alaska is a beautiful, coastal community 225 scenic miles south of Anchorage and the headquarters of Alaska Coastal Marine. To get to the harbor to meet the boats, head south on the Sterling Highway until you reach the Homer Spit. The small boat harbor is 3.5 miles down the spit on the left. Plan to arrive 30 minutes prior to your departure time.
What we provide:
- All fishing tackle, bait, rods and reels
- Any instruction you may need
- We will fillet your fish for you for free at the end of your charter.
What to Bring
Alaska Fishing License
Make sure everyone 16 and older has a fishing license prior to departure. Licenses can be purchased online from Alaska Department of Fish and Game or you can find them at local retailers. All fishing licenses, tags and halibut derby tickets are available at our office (4287 Homer Spit Rd).
All Trips Need to Know
Always dress in layers, including a rain jacket. Plan to stay warm and dry when it’s chilly or wet, and you can peel off layers as the weather changes. Wear rubber soled, slip-resistant shoes. Sunglasses and sunscreen are always a good idea.
Don’t forget your camera to capture the memories from Homer, Alaska.
Bring anything you would like to eat or drink. If you stop by the office, we’ll be glad to direct you to local shops where you can pick up a hearty charter lunch for day trips. Please leave large coolers in your vehicle. There are several restaurants and shops that sell food around Seldovia for the trips that stop there.
If you have a tendency to develop motion sickness, you might consider taking over the counter medications such as Dramamine, just in case. Preventative medications work best when they are in your system the night before your charter. Don’t wait to start your treatment right before getting on the boat! It may not work. Sometimes ginger products will help as well as wrist bands.
