My wife and I did 2 tours with Skookum. We did the Feast of the Seas tour the first day then did the photo safari the second. Both were wonderful, and I am glad with did both. The Feast of the Seas tour is perfect for folks that want to try a little fishing but not just do that and not haul a bunch of fish home. We fished for a few hours in wonderful scenery and both my wife and I caught a few fish (plenty for eating) then headed to Jim's cabin on the bay and to eat it. Then we headed out for a few hours of sight seeing (but the sight seeing starts right away - I was splitting time between fishing and photography, but favoring photography). The 2nd day we did the photo safari. Captain Jim set up shots for me that are absolutely wonderful. When I showed them to friends and family back home, it was difficult to get folks to believe they were my photos. One of the main reasons I wanted to go to Homer was to get some good photos of eagles. Skookum delivered - got got fantastic shots of eagles, and not just a few. I was also able to get some pretty good photo's of puffin, which is not easy (small, fast, and fly away). For the puffin, Captain jim would cut the engines and float towards them so the would not be scared off, and we were able to get fairly close. Because I was determine to get a good Puffin photo, Jim has patience and worked it until I got some get pics. The only disappointment was we did not get to see any killer whales. That possibility existed, but never came across any (and no reports of other charters finding any either, whereas there was reported activity the day prior). But that gives me an excuse to go back a do it again someday.
