Customer Review!

"Where do I begin? First of all, their boat, the Wilderness Explorer, was a state of the art fishing vessel that was luxurious and equipped with everything you need for an amazing fishing adventure! The sea keeper kept the trip SO SMOOTH and pleasant. Great for families, friends, and even honeymoon! Their captain, Jamey, was so knowledgeable, fun, energetic, and a true professional of his trade. He found us the best spots and always strived to make sure we caught the best fish! On both fishing days, we limited out on halibut (even catching a 216lb, 72in BEAST) and caught more than we could handle of rockfish and salmon! The deckhand/chef, Brandon, not only surpassed our expectations with the deliciousness of his cooking, but also was a stupendous help with making sure our lines were baited, the deck was clean, and we were all having fun and catching fish. Both men were the key to us having the TIME OF OUR LIVES! They were so flexible, accommodating, fun, and did everything in their power to make our trip the best experience. Dinner was such a treat at the end of the trip, with breathtaking views and mouthwatering dishes... we could not have asked for a better trip with some of the best people in the business. Scott, the owner, is so personable and friendly. Cameron, who helped us process our fish is HILARIOUS and so unbelievably helpful with filleting our catch. All in all, I would recommend this crew/company 10/10 times to anyone and everyone I know. We hope to come back again, too! Thank you for memories of a lifetime!!"

Trip Information!

Two adventures seem to top the list of “must does” while visiting Alaska: Trophy Saltwater Fishing and Coastal Brown Bear Viewing.  With exclusive access to floatplanes and state-of-the-art fishing vessels, we offer our guests the best of both worlds at a package price. 

 

Day #1 begins bright and early as you board the F/V Wilderness Explorer and depart the dock at the Homer Harbor or your lodge across Kachemak Bay.  The crew will throttle up 1275 horsepower to get you out to the fishing grounds, beyond the crowd.  Spend the day fishing for a variety of species of wild and delicious salmon and halibut on our 44’ gyro-stabilized vessel.  Along the way, you’ll enjoy stunning coastal Alaska scenery including waterfalls, sea lions, otters, eagles, and possibly, a variety of whales! When your arms get tired and the day is done, you’ll return to civilization in time for dinner and a relaxing evening.  Want a taste test while on the boat?  Ask about our signature Catch and Cook option.  How about adding more time to fish and spending less time traveling out?  Ask about our “Fly to the Boat” option!  Turn a 1 ½ hour steam out to the fishing grounds into a 15 minute plane ride and you’ll be screaming “FISH ON” before the other charters get past the harbor.  Day one trip length 10-12 hours.

 

Day #2 our pilots will have our wheeled bushplanes fueled up and ready for your next adventure.  Spend the day at Hallo Bay, Chinitna Bay, or Brooks Falls!  Each of these locations offer incredible opportunities to observe bears in their natural environment.  After a short safety briefing, you’ll climb aboard one of our bushplanes and fly across Cook Inlet into bear country!  Your pilot has no restrictions when it comes to the flightsee portion of the trip.  They will take you over glaciers, around volcanoes, along salmon streams and soon touch down on a short sandy beach.  From there, you and your trained guide will hike into the backcountry for a photo safari where incredible bears, scenery, and wildlife are around every corner.  It won’t take long to realize why these animals, ranging from 800 to 1200 lbs. are at the top of the food chain. Watch the largest bears in the world dig for clams, graze on sedge grasses, establish dominance, and teach new cubs how to catch salmon in the river.  Spend the day with us in the heart of bear country and make Alaska size memories that will last a lifetime!  Day two trip length 6-7 hours.
