Ravyness – Red Door Charters

Discover the undisputed “Halibut Capital of the World” and its stunning surroundings with Red Door Charters. With unbeatable Halibut fishing just beyond our doorstep, you’ll be fishing for these beauties along with delicious Salmon and Rockfish. Based out of Homer, Alaska, we offer world-class nearshore fishing and lodging through Red Door Lodge.

Head out to sea aboard a 29’ North River offshore sportfishing boat. This strong vessel is just the boat you want to get you out on Alaska’s choppy waters. Powered by twin 300 HP Yamaha engines, you’ll reach speeds of up to 35 knots, getting you on the fish with ease. Complete with a fishfinder and GPS, she’s a fully-rigged craft. You’ll have the use of the toilet, and plenty of space for up to 6 guests in the cabin and outdoors to fish.

You’ll fish the confluence of Kachemak Bay and Cook Inlet, and the surrounding islands.

Be ready for a fun, intensive fishing experience with some of the world’s most prized fish. Bring along your fishing licenses, stamps, and your own food and beverages for the day.

Red Door Charters can’t wait to welcome you aboard to make some lifelong memories!

And remember to buy a King Salmon stamp. Halibut is closed each Wednesday in 2022, so make this day a Salmon derby instead!
