About Rainbow Tours 

Rainbow Tours has been serving the communities of Kachemak Bay since 1982. We have over 30 years of experience on this bay and can show you the splendors of Alaska! We know that you have traveled a long way to visit us here on Kachemak Bay and we want to ensure that your Alaskan experience highlights the authentic sights and sounds of our home. Our entertaining and informative crew shares local stories and gives our guests many memorable moments.

We have three vessels that can accommodate you and your guests for a memorable experience in Homer. Join us for a trip to the Gull Island seabird rookery and the community of Seldovia, accessed by the scenic Eldred Passage. Or join us for the most enjoyable half-day halibut charter in Homer. Our Alaska boat tours are sure to delight every member of your group. Join us!

The M/V Rainbow Connection is the largest of our fleet, 65’ long with an 18.5’ beam and a 97-passenger capacity. She is designed for passenger comfort and has a fully automated roll control system for those bumpy days. Has indoor and outdoor seating.

The M/V Jackpot (55’) is our other vessel used for our fishing charters. It has a passenger capacity of 28. However, for fishing, we like to max out at 20 people.

Cloudy Day but Still Adorable

The captain was this honestly kind, overly friendly with a royal British accent. The crew were equally friendly. The captain was very artistic in her dialogue, would engage all of us, cracking millions of jokes. A bit of history, the description of animals, birds all made us forget very soon that it was raining. We saw bald eagle, otters, whales, puffins.

Relaxing Boat Tour

We went on this tour as a last minute excursion and had a wonderful day. We saw lots of Sea Otters, Birds and beautiful scenery. Victoria our captain, Jenna, and Lacy did a great job. They were very friendly and took extra care in showing us the wildlife and scenery. The excursion is well worth the price.

We Saw A Whale!

We took the day tour to Soldovia with our Captain, Emma (who’s last day was today) and Madeline. They took excellent care of their passengers showing us the scenery and wildlife when out of the blue a whale shows up. We were able to delay heading into Soldovia for a bit to stay around and watch it reappear.

Very Good Halibut Fishing Outing

Made the booking the night before for an impromptu fishing adventure. Booking went very smoothly and Captain Dave and the Sizzler did a great job accommodating us and the entire boat limited out. Smooth ride out and back and got to see a breeching whale both ways, puffins, and sea otters as a bonus.

Half Day Fishing Charter

Excellent 1/2 day charter. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They knew everyone by name and made the trip so worthwhile. The seas were calm and everyone caught fish. I would recommend this company to anyone. Easy booking and they are very well organized.
