Choose Between Two Options

  • $40 for 2.5-hour boat tour of Gull Island and Kachemak Bay for one (an $80 value)
  • $79 for the same tour for two (a $160 value)

Once sightseers settle into the Northern Star’s heated, enclosed cabin, captains chart a 2.5-hour course toward Gull Island, a nesting ground teeming with thousands of puffins and cormorants. Tour guides illuminate the migratory patterns and nesting habits of avian species while passengers snap photos. The Northern Star then sets sail to Eldred Passage and Tutka Bay before circling back to port.

Between Sadie Fjords’s vertical peaks, a few wood lodges dot the tree-lined coastline of Sadie Cove, the only signs of human life against the backdrop of dense wilderness. Barring a helicopter drop, a boat ride is the only way to spy on this isolated coastline. Homer Ocean Charters’s captains specialize in toting sightseers, fishermen, and hunters toward isolated regions such as those within Kachemak Bay. In recent years, their knowledge of the region’s most rural splendor has attracted attention from the film crew of Sarah Palin’s Alaska, which relied on Homer Ocean Charters’s vessels to capture footage of far-flung vistas.

Homer Ocean Charters’s fleet of boats accommodates diverse excursions: the heated, wide-window cabin of the Northern Star furnishes sightseeing, and the 60-foot yacht _Outer Limits_’s private cabins house passengers on multiple day-fishing trips. Regardless of the itinerary, captains happily impart their knowledge of the region to guests, as well as offer tips to hitchhiking mermen they politely turned down.
