We went kayaking with this great company Central Charters & Tours in Homer , AK. The guide was great. He explained to us everything during our tour and also he answered all our questions. We also hiked in that area so it was a good combination.

Paid for a full day of halibut fishing but after only 4hrs, everyone on board caught their quota, (despite if they were happy with the size of their catch or not), Captain Rick, (who is a sub contractor in defense of Central Charters) called it a day & went in. The boat broke down twice during the outing & again,... More

We booked a full day combination salmon/halibut fishing trip one day and then booked another half day halibut trip. Our experience with Central Charters could not have been better. Kathy and the staff there are very knowledgeable and made our trip fantastic! We would definitely book through Central Charters again. We enjoyed our combination fishing day the most. We liked...

We booked a combo trip for both salmon and halibut. Captain Daniel took us straight to the king salmon. Within 1 1/2 hours everyone had their limit. We then headed out for halibut. We all caught our limits quickly. Halibut were swimming all around the boat. This was my 4th fishing trip to Homer but the first time I have... More

We walked into Central Charters and booked an immediate Homer harbor cruise. We were set up with 'Charley' in a water taxi (6 people). Charley gave us a narrated tour of the bay surrounding Homer, made sure we saw wildlife, mainly sea otters, some seals, waterfowl, and a humpback spouting. He was very personable, seemed to enjoy our back-and-forth banter,... More

We took the Kachemak Bay Tour + Seldovia. We had an excellent time during the Bay tour, as well as an excellent lunch in Seldovia. The captain did everything she could to see wildlife and the crew was great too. It is really affordable compare to other tour companies in Homer. I recommend it!

The wildlife viewing was great. We were lucky enough to see a good many humpback whale in addition to sea otters, bald eagles, sea birds at the island rookery, and even a mountain goat. The captain and crew did a terrific job of finding and describing the wildlife we saw. The stop in Seldovia was nice with ample time for... More
