These trips will give you a rough idea of some of our favorite things to do with the M/V Milo.  We’ll take your schedule and put it together with the weather and tides and customize your expedition.  Total days and costs may vary slightly. We won’t ever push our luck with weather, so while we might experience rough seas (especially if we’re on the surf hunt) we’ll always keep safety first.  This means that your itinerary is subject to plan on that possibility.

Trips include all food, use of 14′ rib-inflatable launch, park fees and assorted water toys. Our boat has a capacity of 6 guests although most comfortable with 5.

Kachemak Bay

1-3 Days

Explore Homer’s backyard, the waters of Kachemak Bay State Park, via the best darn way to see it – aboard the M/V Milo.  The varied coastline, bays and rivers provide plenty of opportunity for adventure. This has become our favorite pastime and we are eager to share it with you.

Kenai Fjords – Homer/Seward

5- 6 Days

The coastline of Kenai Fjords, between Homer and Seward is some of the most beautiful in the state.  This wild stretch affords amazing scenery, abundant wildlife, lots of opportunity for surf and plenty of flat-water stand-up-paddling options.  5 or 6 days gives us lots of time to pick our weather for surf and traveling.

Augustine Island

 3 days

The journey across Cook Inlet brings Homer’s volcano view to you! This coastline is amazingly varied with lots of cool formations and geologic features.  Sandy beaches also abound so depending on what Mother Nature has to offer weather wise, you’ll be plenty busy playing.

Big Foot Coast

 3 days

A great trip to some wild coast, this is a viable option for a short surf trip out of Homer, although the country warrants exploration with or without swell. The rocky beaches of the Chugach Islands have a lot to offer.

Kodiak Island

 10 days

A trip to the garden isle, home of some of the best surf in Alaska. On your way you’ll travel through some of the most spectacular scenery and wildlife viewing that Alaska has to offer.  We’ll see what the weather holds and make the most of the many gems that the Kodiak area has to offer.

Custom Charter

1-30 days- Rates Dependent upon itinerary
