"WHERE THE LAND ENDS AND THE SEA BEGINS..."
Situated at the southern-most point of the Sterling Highway, Homer, Alaska is known for its world-class fishing and recreation. While the city itself is a 4.5-5 hour drive from Anchorage (2.5 hours from our home base in Cooper Landing), it is well worth the drive if you're looking to experience all of the charm of small-town Alaska. Homer is the "halibut capital of the world" and offers tremendous ocean fishing both in Kachemak Bay and across, in the town of Seldovia (a 45 minute ferry ride from Homer).
Of course, being on the water provides the freshest seafood in all of the local restaurants! Kachemak Bay offers some of the finest oysters you're likely to encounter in your lifetime, along with halibut, salmon, cod, and rockfish (to name a few).
If you need a break from the fishing, not a problem! The views offered by the surrounding water and mountains are breath-taking, and there is no shortage of inspiration for photography. Multiple hiking trails in and around Homer will get you out and about, interacting with the local flora and fauna. The famed Homer Spit is a long, narrow piece of land which extends into the Bay and has a multitude of shops and galleries to explore along the boardwalk. There truly is a little bit of something for everyone!
