Trawler Training School

Alaska small ship cruise - mountains ahead!

"Réanne and I have observed Jim Kyle's Home Shore operation since it began and can highly recommend the Kyle family's personal touches in planning activities, training and cuisine, as well as their respect for the environment. We give Home Shore top marks for professionalism and integrity!"

Don Douglass & Réanne Hemingway-Douglass Authors of the Top-rated Exploring Series of Nautical Guidebooks & Maps for the entire Pacific Coast

"Captain Jim Kyle's Inside Passage Training Cruise is an absolute must for those considering piloting their own boat north to Alaska. Unlike reference books for armchair sailors, this hands-on training while underway instills confidence, without which no well-prepared skipper should leave the dock."
~ Jim Wood,

"There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. . . In or out of 'em, it doesn't matter."
~ From The Wind in the Willows

Hello Prospective Guests:

North to Alaska! A hundred trips and forty seven years after my first Inside Passage adventure, I still look forward to the next one. Join us for eight days of hands-on instruction preparing you for your own passage, in the world's most spectacular classroom. We'll anchor most nights and visit intriguing villages like Ocean Falls and Klemtu.

Home Shore is a wooden commercial vessel, a family member for twenty five years, converted for your comfort with three private staterooms. Our crew includes captain, first mate and hostess/chef. Our cuisine is second to none, a voyage highlight.

Welcome aboard!
Capt. Jim Kyle
