About Coldwater Alaska

Locally Owned and Operated.

Owned and operated by a husband-and-wife team of Homer natives, every aspect of the Coldwater Alaska business is infused with Brad and Lisa’s lifelong love of the water and Alaska. They focus on bringing flexible services to the water taxi and tour business, encouraging you to reach out and share your needs as they share their knowledge of the area, season, and boating business.

Our History

Wanting to share the rich beauty of their home, while also serving a community need to access areas of Kachemak Bay from Homer, Brad and Lisa bought a boat and entered the water taxi business in 2016. Now they’ve expanded their fleet and services to show more travelers and adventurers the unique beauty and wildlife surrounding their hometown.

“Captain Scotty took us across the bay and made the experience so special for all of us. He pointed out wildlife, took the time to tell us all about the area, and was so kind and informative. We had such a blast and appreciated our time with Scotty and Coldwater Taxi.”
