HALIBUT FISHING IN HOMER
Since 1998 my vision at Alaska Ferry Adventures has been to provide fun and unique vacation experiences for people who live and vacation in Alaska.
It is my belief that the success of any company is directly linked to providing outstanding customer service, an affordable price, and a great experience from start to finish. You will find our staff at Alaska Ferry Adventures friendly and professional. All are Alaskan residents, who are willing to share local insight with you and answer your questions with a smile. As a 35-year Alaskan, I promise you will find the Alaskan scenery unbelievable, with massive green forests, rivers of turquoise blue, glaciers, white snow-capped mountains, and evocative towns loaded with history, culture, and adventure.
COOKOUT ON THE BEACH
Hello, my name is Sandy. I live in Homer with my husband and partner, Dennis. We have had the privilege of living in this AWESOME state of Alaska for 32-plus years. I love sharing all the state has to offer and I have traveled extensively through out the state. Alaska is a huge place and there are so many incredible things to do and see. My goal as a tour specialist is to first find out what you would like out of your trip and then make it happen for you.

Debbie - Tour Specialist
I left Homer, Alaska in 1974 and moved to Central Washington State where I have lived for the past 37 years. I never lost my love for Alaska and recently moved back to Homer fulfilling a long-time dream to come back to Alaska. I love Alaska and all it has to offer to people of all ages, from all walks of life. I love boating, 4-Wheeling, bowling, music, and just being out on the waters in this beautiful state! I have a home-based web design business named Deb's Webs that I have operated full-time since 1999 and now keeps me busy part-time. I am totally excited about working with a great team of travel professionals here at Alaska Ferry Adventures. With our knowledge and experience of this beautiful state, we can help you plan the trip of a lifetime!

“La de da, da,” I’m JoJo, The Singing Tour Specialist. In addition to touring throughout the Alaska as a singer / songwriter with my husband/partner for over 35 years as “JoAnn & Monte” (Big fish in Big Pond), I have been helping folks from all walks of life plan their trips to Alaska. I believe the best way to see The Great Land is by having REAL ALASKANS help you plan your trip. I love sharing this Great Land, and I would love to help you with your trip to Alaska. You might have to put up with one of my bad jokes and I might not sing you a song, but I guarantee you’ll be singing about Alaska for many years.
Kim - Tour Specialist
It was a dream of ours for years to move to Alaska, and we are so happy we did! Three years ago we left the “Great Lakes State” with a dream and whatever fit in our Jeeps. We knew we were in the right spot the moment we crossed the Alaskan Border. Besides the amazing natural splendor, superb fishing and regular wildlife-viewing opportunities, I have to say one thing I love the most are the people. Not just in the Kenai Peninsula, but everywhere we have traveled in Alaska, we have met extraordinary people. We both enjoy taking hikes, sea-kayaking, whitewater rafting, glacier trekking, canoeing, gardening, photography and living large under the midnight sun!
My name is Carol. I have the privilege of learning more about this great state through Alaska Ferry Adventures. A lady of photography and adventures I share this great love of nature with my four children and grandson. From bear viewing, halibut fishing, hiking and waiting to capture that perfect photo I am fulfilling a life time dream here in Alaska.
