DAILY HALIBUT CHARTERS FROM MAY THROUGH LABOR DAY

We specialize in halibut trips. Our charter office in the village of Ninilchik is located next to one of the most productive halibut fisheries in Alaska. For over 20 years, we’ve been able to provide our clients with access to this incredible fishery by being able to launch and retrieve our boats from the beach at Deep Creek just south of town. This unique tractor launch arrangement puts us into excellent fishing areas, usually within an hour of leaving the office, giving us a better opportunity to fish the entire tide cycle. Our departure times differ each day according to this cycle and we’re able to put our clients on fish for the duration of the charter. The limit for halibut remains at 2 fish for each client and by using circle hooks we are able to release smaller fish unharmed in search for the bigger ones. Halibut range in size from 15 pounds to over 200 pounds and yield about 50 percent of their body weight in boneless fillets. Whether you live here locally or are visiting from afar, a halibut charter is an adventure worth taking!  

Charter Rates

$250 per person.                 Buy the boat, $1,275

     

LINGCOD “COMBO” TRIPS  IN JULY AND AUGUST

Prehistoric looking monster lingcod prey in the rocky bottoms near the Gulf of Alaska. These long range adventurous trips will create lifetime memories as one of the most incredible fishing experiences you’ve ever had. Searching for lingcod puts us in the same areas with halibut and rockfish, so the chance of catching a delicious variety of numerous fish is likely. Long range trips such as this require perfect weather conditions and Alaska’s marine weather does not always cooperate with our scheduling plans. Therefore, all lingcod trips are booked as halibut charters until the day before departure so we can look at the marine weather forecast and decide if the conditions are favorable for the Gulf waters. Because of the expense involved with long range charters, individual bookings are “at request” until at least 5 fishermen can be combined on a given day. Individuals or groups less than 5 persons have a better chance of completing this adventure when their schedules are more flexible. We encourage you to put together enough fishermen in your group to “buy the boat”.

Charter Rates

Group size 1-5 persons, $360 ea.          Buy the boat, $1800
 

     

SALMON  “COMBO” TRIPS IN MAY AND JULY

Imagine the best of both worlds, salmon AND halibut on the same charter! Take advantage of the migrating salmon running through Cook Inlet in search of their home rivers before heading out to find the halibut. These trips are only available during the peak of the migration from mid-May through the first week in June for the first run, and again from the 1st-15th of July for the second run.

Charter Rates

$280 per person.     Buy the boat, $1,600

 

WESTERN COOK INLET RAZOR CLAM ADVENTURES

The ultimate clam digging experience! This charter takes adventure seekers to the remote wilderness areas on the western shores of Cook Inlet. Accessible only by boat or bush planes, this trip takes us away from civilization and puts you in the heart of the most productive razor clam beaches on the planet.  At this time, there are no bag limits to the amount of clams a person can dig and the virtually untouched beaches are teaming with succulent clams just below the surface. Cook Inlet has the second strongest tidal zones in the world which means hundreds of square miles of exposed beaches appear during the full moon and no moon tide cycles. Charters can be scheduled for clam digging only or can also be part of our “combo” packages with a stop for halibut fishing on the way back to the eastern shores. Just imagine serving up dinner for the family with clam chowder and halibut that you caught in Alaska!

Charter Rates

Clams Only, $175ea.        Clam / Halibut "Combo", $265 ea.      Buy the boat "Combo", $1375

We operate in a friendly, easy going atmosphere and try our hardest to provide a quality fishing excursion you won’t soon forget.

Cancellations and Refunds

Plans change. We realize the last thing you want to do is cancel your highly anticipated fishing adventure. On the other hand we are holding seats that could have been booked by others who wanted the experience. Therefore, we’ve developed a fair cancellation policy.

A $50 service fee applies to all refunds. Any cancellation with 30 days (or more) notice will be fully refunded, minus the service fee. Any cancellation received with less than 30 days notice, but more than 10 days notice, will be charged a $50 per seat fee, plus the service charge. Reservations cancelled without at least 10 days notice will not be refunded. If, however, we are able to sell your seats on the trip you were scheduled, a full refund will be given, minus the service fee. If you have to cancel, please do so as far in advance as you can to increase the possibility of filling your seats which will benefit all the party’s involved.

At times, ocean going trips may be cancelled due to weather or other factors beyond our control. Safety is our number one concern. In the event of weather, mechanical malfunctions or other safety related cancellations brought about by the company and/or captain in charge of a charter, a full refund will be given immediately.
