If you are in Homer there are two activities which I strongly recommend. We took Rainbow Tours over to Seldovia. The commentator was excellent and we were able to get close up shots of Sea Otters, Puffins, Sea Lions, and Harbour Seals to mention just a few. The facilities on board are great with a snack bar with nice coffee.... More

Great way to see wildlife as well as spend some time in Seldovia! Saw whales, puffins, sea otters and many birds as well. The three-hour stay in Seldovia is just enough time to eat lunch and look around. Highly recommended!

For those that do not want to spend a whole day fishing, or are concerned about rough waters, the 1/2 day Halibut charter offered by Rainbow is a great option. For those concerned about rough seas the morning 1/2 day is usually very calm. Both offer very good fishing. The crew and Captain were very helpful and friendly. Quick to... More

We booked a half day Halibut fishing trip from 1-6 and it was awesome! They were super helpful before the tour, we went right next door to purchase our fishing license, you dont need to do it ahead of time. The crew was super helpful and nice. We saw some whales and sea otters too! They went to a few... More

We used Rainbow tours on a 1/2 day ride to Seldovia. The crew was amazing and really helpful. I would've loved to go on another excursion if I had the time.

Highly recommend the 1/2 day Halibut fishing excursion. We had a fabulous time. The boat was comfortable and the fishing guides were very helpful. There were 6 passengers on the boat and 2 guides, so we had alot of individualized attention. Caught 2 large fish each, had them shipped home and will be having our first taste tomorrow!

Very enjoyable day on nice boat. We saw lots of birds and otters and got good explanations throughout the day. Seldovia was a beautiful small town. Enjoyed walking around seeing the ornate houses and art, also small gardens. Nice to watch fishermen catching salmon from the bridge. Nice lunch on the boardwalk overlooking the marina.

What a great (and reasonably priced) experience. We were very impressed with the knowledge of the guides on the boat. Everything flowed like clockwork and we're were all very comfortable. We gots to see tons of sea otters, bald eagles, and other sea birds.

This is operated by women and we had a great ride, stopping for whales, otters and bird island. Nice calm ride, I just loved Seldovia, so quaint and great food at the Boardwalk restaurant recommended by the tour boat. Pricing on this tour reasonable too.

We used this tour boat company for a day tour to Seldovia, AK. I cannot say enough good things about the friendliness and helpfulness of the crew on board our tour. The captain did a great job of pointing out wildlife and getting into coves and bays to find puffins, gulls, eagles and sea otters. We had three hours in... More
