About Us

North Country Halibut Charters invites you to visit Homer, Alaska and enjoy an exciting day of halibut fishing with us. Homer is a World Class Halibut Fishing destination and North Country Charters can take you to the best fishing available. Originally owned and operated by Sean and Gerri Martin, they began running halibut charters in 1978 and started North Country Charters in 1979.

In September of 2021 Sean and Gerri passed the torch to son, Ben Martin, along with two other Homer-bred individuals, Brian Ritchie and Kathy Brennan. As the new owners of North Country Charters they have committed to continuing the legacy of this local, family-owned operation. An accumulation of 44 years of experience fishing in the waters of Lower Cook Inlet and Kachemak Bay, North Country Charters can offer you a quality halibut fishing or salmon fishing trip that can’t be beat. Join us on your trip to Homer for a professional and memorable halibut fishing experience.
