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!

If you join us on one of our special Wednesday half day Halibut trips, on the Bella Vita or the Crusader, the important thing to note is that there is no size restriction on your halibut limit so you are able to catch and keep two halibut of any size.

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 current Halibut fishing regulations there is no charter halibut fishing trips on any Wednesdays, HOWEVER, Central Charters can still offer Halibut fishing charters for you on Wednesdays. 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. The short version is we can legally take you halibut fishing on Wednesdays, come fish with us!

2024 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 (unless you go Halibut fishing with Central Charters on one of our special two fish any size, Wednesday Halibut Fishing trips. We offer full and half day Wednesday halibut fishing options).
