Central Charters & Tours offers visitors to Homer, Alaska a wealth of options for enjoying this beautiful location. Most people come to fish for the Barn Door Halibut or King Salmon, but he truth of the matter is that there are many things to do here that don't even involve fishing. That little fact is what makes Central Charters & Tours such a wonderful part of Homer's charms. 

Fishing with Central Charters & Tours

Homer, Alaska is known the world over as the Halibut Fishing Capital of the World - A title that might seem boastful, but the reality is that the waters around Cook Inlet are fish-rich. Homer provides easy access to the shallow shoals and deep drop offs that Halibut need. They like the cooler waters but come onshore to hunt the massive schools of bait fish. 

Central Charters & Tours is a fleet of five boats. Two are dedicated to half-day fishing trips and the other three serve the full-day Halibut fishers. A half-day is generally 5-6 hours of fishing A full day of fishing for Halibut ranges from 8-12 hours. The difference in time is due to the distance some charters need to get to the best Halibut fishing grounds. 

Expect clean boats that are in wonderful condition, top gear that is well-maintained and a profession crew and good captain. 

The Other Adventures by Central Charters & Tours

Central Charters & Tours offers lodging from single rooms to full-family-sized suites, and they are right along the beach at Homer. That is a true treasure for Homer as lodging can be difficult to find. 

In terms of other activities, Central Charters & Tours offers cruises and whale watching tours. This is a wonderful area to watch gray whales, orca, and sometimes Salmon Sharks or the fabled nar whales. You can also enjoy a day of sea kayaking and check out the marine life including the birds and otters. Kayaking is also one way to watch the big bears fish too. Central Charters & Tours offers bear viewing excursions and wildlife viewing trip.
