Welcome to the New Inlet Charters
The Inlet Charters family is happy to announce the start of our new blog, a place where we will be able to share news and updates about the charter fishing industry and travel in Alaska. We also plan to share our favorite recipes to cook your catch, fishing stories, history and about life in our little piece of paradise called Homer, Alaska. This blog will be another new and exciting way for us to keep everyone updated on Alaska life!
The Homer community is a fun and funky combination of fishermen, artists, foodies and homesteaders. Homer prides itself as being the “Halibut fishing capital of the world.” During the summer season Alaskan residents and tourists flock to this small town to get their shot at fishing in Kachemak Bay and Cook Inlet. Charter fishing out of Homer is an amazing way to experience much of the beauty and joy a day on the water has to offer. It is our pleasure as a family owned and operated charter business for the last thirty years to give people this opportunity.
We offer several different types of tours and Alaskan adventures to our clients. Along with our specialty charter fishing, we also offer eco kayaking tours, wilderness adventures, bear viewing experiences and more. giving our clients the opportunity to enjoy all that the Kenai Peninsula has to offer with experienced and professional guides. Our pride and joy, the Whistler, is a 50-foot Delta charter fishing boat, which has been running charters out of Homer for the last thirty years. The Whistler is a family friendly comfortable boat, complete with two restrooms and a warm, cozy cabin. The Whistler typically carries from 6 to 15 clients on any given day with the opportunity to book private and custom charters. The Whistler features a large comfortable fishing deck and full walk-around, allowing an enjoyable day on the water no matter how large or small your group. We also offer more intimate charters, which would take up to 6 guests on a smaller vessel.
The morning of your fishing experience will start at our charter office where clients are escorted to the boat by our guides. Upon arrival at the boat, the captain and deckhands go over what to expect for the day and basic safety protocol for the vessel. Each angler is required to have a fishing license, which can be purchased through the ADF&G website. All the gear and tackle needed for a successful day of fishing will be provided as well as instruction from the experienced crew. We always recommend that clients come prepared with several layers of clothing, as the weather on the water in Alaska can be unpredictable. Therefore, warm layers as well as proper rain gear are always a great idea. Once the day of fishing is complete, guests are given the opportunity to snap photos of their catch and the crew fillets and bags the fish, keeping individual parties’ fish separate. Once fish are filleted, guests may take their catch and process it on their own, or our crew will have the local fish processors meet us at the docks. At this time your catch will be transported to the processor for vacuum sealing and freezing, giving each guest an effortless and enjoyable experience. Our crew’s main goal is the ensure that everyone has a fun and safe experience on the water.
