Homer Fishing Charters
From do-it-yourself fishing for Dolly Varden on the Anchor River to a fully outfitted, multi-day charter, Homer and north to Anchor Point is a hotspot for angling on the Kenai Peninsula. After all, as the sign leading into town declares, Homer is the self-proclaimed “Halibut Fishing Capital of the World.” But halibut isn’t the only fish around, and the variety of offerings can seem daunting, so doing a little research can make the trip much easier. Here’s what you need to know.
Homer has a decades-long history of charter fishing, so you’ll find lots of options to charter a boat for halibut, salmon, rockfish, lingcod, and even shark, depending on season and weather.

But they also offer a variety of other ways to enjoy the waters off Kachemak Bay, from wildlife cruising to paddling a kayak or hiking in Kachemak Bay State Park.
