Their goal is to ensure you and your group have the best possible experience. Flexibility and fun are the name of the game. Looking to do a little fishing, a little whale watching, and some slow roll cruising by some waterfalls? No problem. Choose from one of their private tours to get you out on the water.

¾ Day Halibut Charters

Many Alaska visitors want to experience saltwater fishing but simply do not have all day to spend out on the ocean. Destination Alaska’s 3/4 day was designed to show you the best of Kachemak Bay's wildlife and introduce you to the joy of catching Halibut. While Halibut are the primary target, you may catch salmon or rockfish too. And, you'll be on one of their luxury, gyro-stabilized vessels with tons of horsepower and all the comforts that you would expect from a high-end charter. As you wrap up your day, your crew will fillet your catch and from here you can either take your fish with you to process it, or your crew can arrange for a local company to process your fish and mail it to you! Doing over 600,000 lbs a year, their processing partner is an expert at making the process easy and affordable. Ask your crew for more information.

Fish & Fly Charters - Get Straight to the Fishing Grounds

Skip the 2-hour boat ride out to the fishing grounds and take a 30-minute floatplane flight straight to the boat instead! The shoreline at the end of the Kenai peninsula is a place like no other. The scenery is unmatched as you are fishing in-between snowcapped peaks, hundred-foot tall rock bluffs, and remote islands. You’ll meet at 7:00 a.m. and take off from Beluga Lake for a gorgeous flight out to the boat. You’ll land on the water and a skiff will take you out to the boat. Thanks to your flight, you’ll beat most of the boats coming from Homer! You’ll board the Legacy, Wilderness Explorer or the new Alaska Endeavor—the company’s three state of the art, Seakeeper stabilized boats (no sea sickness!). Then it’s time to fish!

Once you’re done fishing, you can either cruise back to the harbor with the boat and crew or choose to fly back. Flying back means about an hour and a half of extra fishing time! They’re great for families that want to do a lot of fishing, or perhaps just a little fishing and more sightseeing. Destination Alaska even offers Anchorage direct to the boat, fly-out fishing for those not wanting to travel to Homer, but still wanting the world-class fishing experience!
