Nick and Brandon were the perfect hosts for a fun day of fishing. God also blessed us with gorgeous sunshine for the last day of their season!

Joel at Homer Ocean Charters listened to our goals and was fantastic at suggesting options and accommodating our last-minute style of planning. We had a great three-day weekend with backpacking, kayaking, a lodge and lots of otter sightings!

Captain Travis of the Dimond Cape is awesome, have used him for the last 3 seasons. He put us on a spot that everyone limited out on halibut. Feeder Kings were a little harder to pick up, we did land two, but they just weren’t cooperating. The over experience with with Captain Travis and Homer Ocean Charters was none other than perfect. As long as Travis continues running the boat, I’ll keep coming back. If you want big fish, this is the charter company to use, they won’t disappoint, you’ll have a great experience, and may even see whales.

It was an amazing experience. Beautiful day. Everyone caught their first halibut right away. The second was a little harder to come by but a couple people landed some rock fish and we did get a 50 to 60 lb halibut. Captain nick and his deck hand joe were very informative, kind, and helpful. Overall great experience!

On July 30,2020 five of us booked a four day fishing trip on the Outer Limits at $3,400 per day.,which included the boat, captain, deck hand support sleeping accommodations and all meals. If you like to do everything yourself, net fish, untangle lines , bait your own hooks & cut bait etc, that is good because it seemed that when you needed the deckhand he was no where to be found or when he was there he acted very lethargic.You need to bring your own food and drinks as they ran out of almost everything for lunch & breakfast (no hot food) Dinner was what you caught-- very minimal food at that.The captain & his 15 year old son/deckhand barely spoke to you or showed any enthusiasm to why you were there (fishing). Yes you will catch some fish but the captain seems to only know the spots to catch smaller fish as the largest Halibut we caught was approx 35lbs, pretty poor for Homer Alaska. On the last day that we were paying $3,400 for, the Captain took us back to a spot to catch more Salmon, I asked him if we could catch rock fish as we had enough Salmon, he ignored this request & we caught over our limit but didn't find out why until we docked & saw two large bags of filleted Salmon marked CREW. So in other words we fished the last morning for the Captain & his son & we paid $3,400 to do that. We have all fished for years in Alaska but this trip was unacceptable/ trip from hell & none of us will likely ever return to Homer Alaska. We can't comment on the other crews at this company, I'm sure they are very good but this boat/Captain & son ruined are fishing trip. We would encourage you not to consider booking the Outer Limits with the captain & his son, total waste of time & a lot of money.
