Did you know..."BARN DOOR" Halibut weighing up to 400 pounds can be caught out of Homer?
Homer is a 5-hour drive south of Anchorage, located on the tip of the Kenai Peninsula where the Sterling Highway ends. No visit to Homer is complete without a visit to "the Spit", a long, narrow finger of land that extends 4.5 miles into Kachemak Bay. Although it is known as the "Halibut Fishing Capital of the World," this is not your typical fishing town. Homer is known throughout Alaska for its strong art community. With the beauty of Kachemak Bay, glaciers and mountains, it’s no wonder where the artists get their inspiration!
Activites in Homer:
Visit the full-service Tutka Bay Lodge for an all inclusive remote retreat to the wilderness complete with luxurious spa services and world class, award winning cuisine.
Try for record size halibut on a guided fishing charter. Average catches are not uncommon to be from 100-200 pounds!
Take in a flightseeing tour for a bird's eye view above of the "Ring of Fire" volcanoes.
Or get up close and personal with Grizzlies on a backcountry excursion into "Bear Country."
