Come see beautiful Kachemak bay from the comfort of our 32′ Bayweld, the Bella Vita! Departing everyday with a minimum of three people and a maximum of six.
Half-Day Fishing on the Bella Vita
- 1/2 Day Halibut Per Person
World-Class Halibut Fishing from Homer
Get ready for a day of world-class deep sea halibut fishing in Kachemak Bay and Lower Cook Inlet! You have just the right amount of time to get two delicious halibut and still plan for other great activities the same day. In the five and a half hours you spend with us, we travel between 20 and 25 miles each way to get you into some fantastic fishing.
The twin 300HP outboards offer a quiet fast ride, allowing the Captain to regal you with fish stories and adventures at sea. The Bella Vita slices through the water speeding to the fishing grounds to maximize your time with lines in the water.
This half-day trip features the Bella Vita, a six-person vessel that is used exclusively for halibut fishing trips. Faster than the large half-day boats, it is able to get to the fishing grounds faster, allowing more time for halibut fishing! It’s the perfect vessel for people with strict time limits and private parties of four to six anglers.
No experience necessary! The Captain will help you with every aspect of catching fish and having a blast at the same time!
The minimum age allowed for the safety of everyone on board is 6 years old. If you have a family with members younger than 6 please call us to talk about booking a private charter for just your group. By booking a private boat the age limit is more flexible.
All captains are U.S.C.G. licensed and take pride in their comfortable, safe vessels.
Due to the 2023 Halibut fishing regulations we are no longer allowed to offer “traditional” charter halibut fishing trips on any Tuesdays between June 20th and August 15th, HOWEVER, we can still offer Halibut fishing charters for you on those Tuesdays. We can do this because of the Federally sponsored GAF program that allows the conversion of commercial halibut quota to sport fish quota. Please give us a call for a more in-depth explanation.
2023 halibut regulations; two halibut per person per day with no annual limit. Each day you can retain one halibut of any size and one halibut that is 28 inches (in overall length) or less. No Halibut fishing on Wednesdays.

- If seasickness is a concern, most folks have great success with non-drowsy medications such as Bonine or Dramamine 2.

These medications can also make you a little thirsty, so please bring some extra water if you use them.
