I would highly recommend Ashore Water Taxi. My friend and I made a last minute trip to Homer and were trying to make our way to Halibut Cove and Ashore went out of their way to help us get to our destination.

Being a tourist, I assumed a water taxi worked just like a regular taxi...you call and someone comes to pick you up. Wrong. Apparently with the main water taxi service in Homer you need reservations days in advance, even in the off season. Thank goodness...More

Our family of four took an hour tour to see the different birds on Gull island. The otters stole the show! It was great to get out on the Bay. Our driver Jim was knowledgeable. I highly recommend it!

We used the water taxi for our trip to and from Humpy Creek. The captain was very informative, pleasant and courteous. I would use them again in the future.

Water taxi was easy to find, arrived on time. Pilot Dave was friendly and there were seats out of the wind. Dave's travel companion was very interesting.

What a great way to see Alaska!!! Water taxi to our hiking trail. Hiked to the glacier and across the saddleback trail. Pick up 4 hours later right on time. Spent time whale watching in the cove. Magical day, great people!!!

The best way to see Gull Island and other birds, wildlife and beauty is to take Dave's water taxi (Ashore Water Taxi). Dave did a great job of helping us find Puffins, eagles and Mountain Goats and the scenery was beautiful.
