During the height of salmon season, it is possible to see 50 or more brown bears feeding in the river only a few feet from the observation platforms. The Brooks River is home to one of the best natural runs of red and silver salmon in the state! This draws bears from all over the area to the river for a viewing experience like no other.

CHINITNA BAY & HALLO BAY: Bear Viewing in Alaska is world renowned for giving visitors an up close and personal experience with majestic Coastal Brown Bears. 98% of our country’s brown bears live in Alaska and hundreds of these incredible animals live right across from the Kenai Peninsula on the west side of Cook Inlet. We are proud to offer our guests the opportunity to fly by wheeled bush plane into the heart of Katmai and/or Lake Clark National Parks to spend the day watching these amazing animals. Each of these locations offer incredible opportunities to observe bears ranging from 800 to 1200 lbs. in their natural environment. After a short safety briefing, you’ll put on a pair of waterproof hip boots, and climb aboard one of our bush planes. Many customers have commented that the flight alone into bear country was worth the price of admission. Your route will take you over and around volcanoes, glaciers, and rivers where you’ll land on long sandy beaches. From there, you and your trained guide will hike into the backcountry for a photo safari where the incredible scenery and wildlife are around every corner. It will take your breath away.

Halibut and Salmon Fishing

Homer is known as the "Halibut Capital of the World" and this is a 100% true statement.  A visit to Alaska isn’t complete without spending a day on the water catching trophy Halibut, Salmon, and Rockfish. The F/V Wilderness Explorer was custom built with 44’ of luxury and 1275 h.p. to get you and your group out to prime fishing grounds in comfort and record time. A fast vessel means you’ll have more time to fish! Our captain and crew will meet you at our office on the Homer Spit at 6:30 a.m. for a scenic ride along Alaska’s pristine coastal wilderness to our favorite fishing holes. Worried about motion sickness? We have one of the only charter vessels in Alaska that has a Seakeeper 6 gyro stabilization system installed. This system eliminates 90% of vessel roll, the leading cause of seasickness. Our seasoned captain and crew will teach you all you need to know to bring the big ones over the rail and into the cooler. When your arms are tired and the day is done, our deckhand will expertly fillet and prepare your fish to be cooked or vacuum-sealed and frozen by a local fish processor. You’ll roll back into the harbor around 4:00 p.m. with plenty of time to go to dinner at one of our fine restaraunts.

Glacier Tours by Jet Ski

If you are looking for an extraordinary experience in Alaska’s coastal backcountry, this is it! You’ll rise and shine on the M/V Peregrine in the heart of the McCarty Fjords and enjoy a chef prepared breakfast before heading out for a day of exploring via jet ski. Our guides and crew will size everyone up for warm, top of the line dry suits, helmets, gloves, and neoprene boots. Even though you will never be alone on your adventure, safety is paramount in the backcountry, so we provide everyone with linked
radio communications, personal floatation devices with water activated strobes, and emergency locators. We operate 300 H.P. GTX Limited Seadoos and our guides will walk you through a detailed safety brief and tutorial on how to operate these amazing and powerful machines. One-by-one we’ll taxi away from the boat as your guide leads you into some of the most incredible bays and coves in Alaska. On the 15-mile cruise to the McCarty Glacier along the northwest shoreline, you’ll have the opportunity to see an abundance of sea life and panoramic vistas of waterfalls, beaches, alpine ridges, and rocky pinnacles that will leave you speechless. At the end of the Fjord is the mighty McCarty Glacier
that drops straight into the ocean. We will carefully navigate and slow roll through a maze of giant blue icebergs giving you plenty of time to take it all in and capture the memories with your camera. We’ll gather as a group and turn off the machines for a few minutes. Can you hear it? The glacier is groaning and cracking as it moves at a microscopic pace down the mountain grinding the rocks along the edges and further carving the valley below. If we experience good fortune in timing, we could be there to watch as house size chunks of ice calve off and crash into the water. This is a sound and sight experience you will never forget. Around 12 noon, the 44 x 14 F/V Endeavor will arrive at the glacier, and we will disembark from the jet skis for a bathroom break and fantastic barbeque lunch served right on the fully enclosed back deck of the boat! Enjoy a veggie/cheese/cracker platter appetizer, followed by grilled hamburgers, and hot soup all served with a picture-perfect view of the glacier. After lunch, it’s time to start our two-hour cruise back to the Peregrine. For the return trip, you’ll cruise along the Southeast shoreline on our way to Moonlight Bay. We’ll explore a myriad of incredible bays and coves along our route of travel, many of which have cascading waterfalls originating from the snowcapped mountains above. After exploring miles of incredible coastline, we’ll arrive back at the Peregrine where we’ll tie up the jet skis, shed our dry suits, relax, and get cleaned up for dinner. Once this day is complete, you will have experienced a part of Alaska that has only been seen by the most adventurous visitors and residents alike.

 Sea Kayaking/Paddle Boarding 

The McCarty Fjords is an incredible destination for sea kayaking and paddle boarding in Alaska. Surrounded by picturesque mountain peaks, cascading waterfalls, tidewater and hanging glaciers, and abundant wildlife; it doesn’t get any better than this.
Destination Alaska offers guided kayaking and paddle boarding day trips for beginner and experienced adventurers. Paddle among sea otters, porpoises and even whales at times. Tide pooling and learning about the local sea life will greatly add to your Alaska adventure. Many of our V.I.P. guests have mentioned kayaking as the highlight of their Alaska vacation. We use single and double person Necky/Old Town sea kayaks that are very stable for beginners while providing the adventure a more seasoned paddler is looking for. Our guides are experienced, knowledgeable, and helpful and are anxiously awaiting your arrival. Let’s go!

Guided Full-Day Paddle

After a hearty breakfast on the Peregrine, you will be fitted for a dry suit, boots, gloves and a life jacket to ensure your comfort throughout the day. Then…. it’s all aboard the Alaska Endeavor loaded with kayaks, paddleboards, and guides where it will take you from the Peregrine out of Moonlight Bay down the East side of the McCarty Fjords toward to the mighty McCarty Glacier. We’ll unload your kayaks and paddle boards and pull up on a secluded beach where your guide will provide instructions on paddling in a glacier environment and safety. You’ll navigate the pristine waters of the Fjords while watching for sea otters, porpoises, sea birds, and other wildlife. Your guide will customize the outing according to your skills and goals to ensure that everyone has a fantastic trip. While you’re navigating the glacier ice, our crew will be setting up for a full barbeque lunch served around noon. Clothing and proper gear are important. You should bring warm layered clothes, sunglasses, sunscreen, and a brimmed hat. Above all….. don’t forget your camera! 


Interpretive Glacier Hike

The day you arrive at the Peregrine, we'll get you settled into your accommodations, have a nice lunch and then head out on your first adventure.  We’ll load up on the F/V Alaska Endeavor and drive a few miles across the Fjord for a spectacular hike up to the Dinglestadt Glacier. We’ll skiff you from the Alaska Endeavor to the beach in front of this magnificent glacier where you will begin your hike. The Dinglestadt Glacier hike is approximately 1 mile each way and crosses flat terrain, up the dry outwash plain of the glacier. It ends at the base of the ice that is thousands of years old. Your guide will point out the stages ofreforestation along the glacial moraine and provide you with a wealth of information while exploring this incredible area. This hike offers superb views of the glacier and its surrounding peaks. Bring warm layered clothes and comfortable hiking shoes, rain gear, camera, and binoculars. Departure and return times will be arranged to meet your needs and experience level but generally we depart the Peregrine at 10 a.m. and return around 4 p.m. Lace up those hiking boots and let’s go exploring! Once back at the Peregrine, you’ll relax for a bit, take a hot shower and get ready for your evening dinner cruise. At 5:30 p.m. The Endeavor will depart for Kachemak Bay State Park and Nuka Island. While you enjoy a gourmet Alaska dinner, we will cruise in and around the pristine bays and coves of this incredible state park. Numerous bears, wolves, eagles, wolverines, whales, and other sea/wildlife call this place home. As an added bonus, behind Nuka Island, there are some of the most amazing waterfalls in the state. What better way to cap off the day then enjoying fine dining while cruising along in the comfort of our fully enclosed restaurant. We’ll arrive back at the Peregrine around 9:30 p.m.

Tripadvisor 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!!"
