Kachemak King Fishing Charters

If you’re up for a real Alaskan adventure, join Kachemak King Fishing Charters and let them take you on a trip of a lifetime! The captain and the crew will take you out to the world-class fishing spots around Kachemak Bay and Cook Inlet, where you’ll get to battle some of Alaska’s most prized fish species.

You’ll head out on one of their two 37’ Tollycraft offshore sportfishing boats, that can take up to 6 anglers each per trip. They’re powered by twin 380 HP John Deer and 430 HP Cummins engines, so you’ll get to the fishing grounds in the blink of an eye! There’s heating, a standard flushing toilet, and comfortable seating on board so you ride out in style.

This part of the world boasts some incredible nature, and diverse wildlife. On your trip, you’ll be able to see whales, seals, otters, sea lions, and birds along the way. There’s a variety of fish species inhabiting these waters, so expect to come across Halibut, Rockfish, Lingcod, and Salmon.

All of the equipment you’ll need for a productive trip will be waiting for you on board. You’ll get rods, reel, and terminal tackle, as well as a range of artificial lures. The crew will be more than happy to clean and fillet your catch for you, so you’ll get a lovely meal out of your trip once you return to shore.

Everything that’s left to do is get a fishing license, and pack some clothes, food, and drinks, and you’re ready! Kids are welcome on the boat, so if you want to make some nice memories with your children, don’t hesitate to bring them.

I've grown up fishing my whole life in the Florida Keys, since my parents could strap the car seat to the boat. I followed my brother Mike, an amazing charter captain up here to Alaska and have taken over his charter business im memoria. We run 2 great vessels in the Homer harbor, the iconic Kachemak King and her sistership the Dilligaf. Both boats have excellent captains and mates to give you a great fishing experience. Come fishing with us.
