Greetings from the Inlet Charters team
Greetings from the Inlet Charters team!
This is the time of year where we can switch gears from daily work to family, friends and community. We have so much to be thankful for and that includes you all. With your patronage and joy of our beautiful surroundings our season was full of fun adventures with folks who traveled from all over the world to our “Our cosmic hamlet by the Sea ”! As referred to by Homer’s “Brother Asaiah Bates” , our old patron sage of the lower Kenai Peninsula. Our local “Homer ” Bookstore has an interesting read of Brother Asaih written by Martha Ellen Anderson. The book is a fascinating read of when Asaiah came to Homer as a Barefooter. Never wore shoes! That was a tuff Clan!
We learned much by navigating our ever changing world and seeing the joy in faces return again. We had a spectacular team working in the office as well as Captains and deckhands. Our weather offered many wonderful “catching” days for Homer Halibut fishing, salmon fishing and other species.
We are thankful for Homer Fish Processing and Coal Point Trading for helping our clients with their Freezing and shipping needs. To watch the landing crews cover the harbor with totes of Wild Alaskan Seafood is something to see. The folks working as the landing team are those NEON T shirts you see on all the fingers in the harbor. The bear viewing was spectacular and the Fat Bear Tuesday started 2014 got 8000,000 votes in 2021.
The Rangers take & post bear pictures to be viewed on www.fatbearweek.org. People may vote using any criteria they see fit. Throughout the season you can also tune into the explore.org bear cams which offer unprecedented access to the lives of the bears of Brooks Fall.
I personally along with the office team have been privileged to many day trips to Katmai to sit with the bears thanks to the pilots Inlet has worked with for many years.
Again our thanks and to a joyful New Year. We will be sending local updates and news in the future.
Barb, Gary & the Team
