Half-Day Fishing on the Bella Vita

Quick Details

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 to six hours you spend with us, we travel between 20 and 25 miles each way to get you into some fantastic fishing.

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.

All captains are U.S.C.G. licensed and take pride in their comfortable, safe vessels.

    • If seasickness is a concern, most folks have great success with non-drowsy medications such as Bonine or Dramamine 2. It is usually best to take a half dosage 12 hours prior to your trip and a full dosage just prior. These medications can also make you a little thirsty, so please bring some extra water if you use them.
