Getting to Know Homer Fishing Captain- Captain “Sea”
While Homer, in general, is known for a fun and experienced fleet, there is one Homer fishing Captain that sticks out from them all and that’s Captain Ciara aka ” Captain Sea”! Being one of the few female Homer fishing Captains in this quaint harbor town, she prides herself on having the passion and love for fishing! Below, we dive into getting to know her and what makes her a one-of-a-kind Captain in Homer, Alaska!
Ciara grew up in a large family setting with 7 adventurous siblings! Her passion for fishing began with her older brother, Captain Garrett Lambert, as he hired her as the first mate for the Summer. Once in Alaska, she considered it home and her passion grew deeper. Like most Homer fishing Captains, she started from the bottom up as the first mate on a 50ft charter vessel! Five years later, she is not only among the few females in the charter industry, but she is also one of the youngest Captains with a hefty 50 ton USCG license. Spending the last 5 years learning tides, the productivity of fishing spots, fishing techniques, selecting gear options, and much more, she was ready to run the show!
“Being a deckhand gave me the hands on experience I needed to learn how to become the Captain I wanted to be. Most importantly, it taught me about the Alaskan seas”- Capt. Sea
During the off-season, Ciara spends her time exploring Lower 48’s spearfishing and diving opportunities! When she’s not on the water, she’s snowboarding with her older sister in Colorado, traveling, or going back to her roots in Montana and working at local high-end lodges.
