The captain should possess a current Coast Guard certification of a 50 to 100-ton Master's license.
We operate two boats at the lodge, a 44-foot Maxweld catamaran, and a 26-foot Hewescraft utility boat.
We hire two qualified boat captains at Tutka Bay Lodge for our busy summer season. The captain is responsible for the safe operation of our vessels, the maintenance of our boats, and interaction with our guests regarding our natural geography and the uniqueness of life along Kachemak Bay. The Tutka Bay team conveys our company philosophy and company values to our guests.
The boat captain drives guests to and from Homer, around to various destinations within Tutka Bay and Kachemak Bay, and supports the lodge with transportation services including shopping and trash trips to Homer. The captain can at times function as a naturalist guide depending on your skills and background. Guides lead guests into wilderness areas surrounding the lodge via hiking or sea kayaking.
