“Fished with the crew of the Sundy out of Homer AK . Captain Gabe & Jamie told a group of 6 of us what to look for when we got to our fishing spot. It didn’t take long to start bringing in fish. We limited out in a few hours. My two brother-in-laws and friends had one of the best fishing experiences that one could ask for. We already booked to go back next year and I know we plan to book with Ninilchik Charters again.” -Rich M
“I spontaneously booked a combo charter trip for myself & two girlfriends at an early season promotional price. We added a night of lodging so we could spend a second night while our fish was freezing. We ended up with five fisher-women on a boat with Captain Nick, who epitomizes everything there is to love about outdoor Alaska. We had such fun on the water, caught our limits, and are still in awe of the stories and photos Nick shared with us about life in Alaska. Highly, highly recommend. Only feedback in hindsight is we would request our fish be packaged in smaller weight packages.” -Trip Advisor Member
“My husband and I booked 2 fishing trip chartes with Ninilchik Charters. One charter was for an all day Halibut trip in Homer, AK and the other was a multi-species fishing trip in Seward. Both charters were excellent and the captains and deckhands were alot of fun! They work their butts off to try and ensure to catch your limit! Great memories and will be visiting Alaska again and rebooking with Ninilchik!” – M. Mill
“We sailed on the Artic Endeavour out of Seward on the all day multi-species trip. The boat had a total of 11 persons fishing plus the captain (Larry) and deckhand (“Ty”- a young woman). They were both phenomenal. While a captain for many jeans, Larry was new to the Seward area but that didn’t stop him from finding the fish. Ty had the Majic touch for helping the newbies get a fish on the line. We all caught our limit of Halibut and silver salmon plus black cod, ling cod, yellow-eye, black bass, goldens and some other misc fish. Ty filleted all the fish in the 1.5 hr trip back to the harbor! My husband and I had 42 lbs of fillets. The only negative about the whole trip was the cost of processing and shipping them home. I had discussed this in great detail with the office before booking. It turned out to be much more expensive than their estimate. $312 for the 42 lbs. For prior fishing trips I had been able to bring them home as a piece of luggage. Our trip itinerary didn’t give us that option. Perhaps they have cheaper options out of the other areas that they offer trips. It was a fantastic fishing day!” -Berry
“The staff for our charter was GREAT. Made sure every passenger had a good time and caught their limit. Nick was our Captain. Patient and knowledgable of the waters and tides and wicked skills cleaning and fileting our catch. Mike (the owner) has a fantastic set up for all skill levels and makes sure you are well taken care of. Our catch was packaged and frozen ready for shipping or checked baggage. We travelled 12 hours to get home and the fish were STILL FROZEN. Top rate place for sure.” – Kim S.
“Mike has a TOP NOTCH joint. Our Captain, Nick was fantastic! Didn’t matter our skill level he was very patient and made sure every passenger got their limit and had a good time. He also has wicked knife skills cleaning and fileting our catch.” – Kim S.
“We went fishing for halibut and salmon with a friend of mine and our two sons. The boat was a solid piece of equipment that made some pretty rough seas feel like it was no big deal. The crew of 2 worked very hard to give us the best day of fishing we have ever had. They were highly efficient, thoroughly courteous and respectful, ever patient with us and were so quick on every task they made us feel like there were 4 or 5 crew members instead of just two! We were so impressed with how these two took care of every last bit of hard work involved in fishing and left all the fun to us! I cannot emphasize enough the professionalism of these two. Best value for money ever!” -Phillip D.
“We did a day trip with Ninilchik charters for halibut fishing last July. We went for them because we purchased a Tour Saver booklet in Anchorage and there offered there 2×1, i.e. we were two and only paid for one. Even if you never fished before, you will manage to catch a couple of halibut, or if you are lucky even salmon. the waters around Homer are very rich, and the personnel on board very patient and professional. We were the only non American and not experienced fishers on board and they took the time to explain things and ensure we had a enjoyable and sucessfull experience.On the way back they prepare the fish for you so you can take your 16 filets halibut to the freezer in your RV and eat fresh and delicious fish the rest of your holidays in Alaska. Recommendable!” -Jose D
“We were on the Sundy for a 9 hour fishing trip. There were 9 in our party plus some other people. Jamie was fantastic. We had been there for 9 hours, but I hadn’t caught a fish yet. So they said we are not leaving until everyone has caught a fish. I ended up catching a halibut and a salmon. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone going to Homer. Pack your lunch and snacks and drinks. You could also pack something for the workers to eat.” -Trip Advisor Member
“Ninilchik Charters was fantastic! The guides were very professional and informational throughout the trip. Fishing was great, Gear was great and the scenario was beautiful.” -P. Ruda
“We fished with Ninilchik charters for three days out of Homer and one day out of Ninilchik. Garret and Jamie were very helpful and did their best to make sure everyone was having a good time. They had their hands full the three days because a lot of people were catching their limits on halibut and silver salmon. We had great weather during those 4 days and only one day of rough seas. Our trip in Ninilchik with Eric was a blast! We all caught our limit on halibut that day. None of this would have been possible without Leah! Leah made sure that our group knew exactly where we needed to be and what we needed for the trip, which made our trip run very smoothly. I would highly recommend fishing with this charter!” -Ben H.
“Captain Garrett and Jamie did their best to make sure everyone caught fish. I think their hard work helped everyone to limit out on Halibut.They were more interested in us catching fish than hurrying back to dock on a time table. I would recommend fishing with Ninilchik Charters and I would go again.” -Barbara H.
“Ninilchik Charters is a very reliable charter service. Two years ago my wife and I did halibut fishing out of Ninilchik, AK. After going an hour into the Cook Inlet, the wind came up along with very large swells and waves. Our boat captain turned around and took us back for safety’s concern. We were given a FULL refund on our charter. We did book again a month later and had a fantastic experience. This year my SIL and I book with Ninilchik out of Seward to go silver salmon fishing in Resurrection Bay. But the captain said the fish were outside the bay. Because of the longer boat ride to get there, he elected to extend our time so that we would get the full time of fishing. Again, this charter service went out of their way to make sure the clients had the very best fishing experience. I very highly recommend Ninilchik Charters to anyone who want to experience Alaska fishing!” -Trip Advisor Member
“I took my 77 year old father out for a Multi-Species Combo trip on 7/28/15, we limited out on Halibut and each caught 2 nice Silver Salmon. It was a fantastic trip, and the crew on the Sundy were awesome to fish with.” -J Chard.
“The entire stay and experience was excellent. The people were extremely kind,curteous,and helpful. The boat captains got us limits of fish daily. The river captains helped us out even when we messed up. They also got us limits of fish. I would highly recommend Ninilchik Charters if you were planning an Alaska fishing trip.” -Richard M
