Reservations for the Saltry and Danny j ferry




 We are now taking reservations for our 2019 season!

We will be open from

May 25th through September 1st. 

Things to Know

Our trips are sold as ROUND TRIP.  You must return on the trip you purchase, unless you are renting accommodations on the island.

Reservations are required. The Danny J Ferry carries 29 passengers. In addition to the Danny J, we sometimes operate the 45 passenger Stormbird.  All vessels are Coast Guard approved and licensed.  Modern docking facilities make it easy for anyone to get on or off the boats, although the ramps to and from the boats can become steep during low tides.  Kachemak Bay Ferry reserves the right to substitute another vessel for the Danny J as conditions dictate.  Special charters are available upon request.

To read trip descriptions and prices, please visit the Danny J Ferry page.

The Saltry's vast majority of seating is outside, rain or shine. We do have an awning to shelter you from the rain, but please wear warm and waterproof clothing to help keep you warm and dry. 

We are dog friendly!  Dogs are welcome, no charge, as long as they are friendly and must remain on leash at all times!

Please pick up your ticket at the office at least 30 min before your tour departs. The Danny J/Saltry Restaurant Booking Office is open from 9-5 daily and is located on the Homer Spit. Once you have picked up your ticket you will be directed to Ramp 1 where the Danny J docks. 

The booking office is located about 3.8 miles out Homer Spit. We are on the last boardwalk on the left  (same side as the harbor) before the Salty Dawg (the lighthouse). There is a large yellow sign on top of the boardwalk that says "Bald Mountain Air".  We are right next door to Bald Mountain Air in a small orange building.   

Please stop in and say hello to our Greeter "Archer"!

West Ismailof Island is private - water taxis do not service The Saltry.
