On June 15, 2004, a group of concerned charter boat operators from Homer took time out of their busy summer season and formed a new charter association- The Alaska Charter Association. The Alaska Charter Association represents various business and individuals that have united against efforts to restrict the recreational angler’s public access to the halibut resource. Our main points of concern are:
From its humble beginnings in Homer, the Alaska Charter Association has grown to be the state’s largest association of charter boat operators.
Our mission - The Alaska Charter Association seeks to preserve and protect public access fishing rights and the marine resources saltwater fishermen need, and for the Alaska fishing charter fleet to best serve the recreational fishery.
Our Board of Directors are elected on a rotating basis and is composed of Alaska fishing industry members who own charter fishing boats and who volunteer their time and expertise to our organization.
