As the largest state in the United States, Alaska has some of the most beautiful destinations in the world to explore. Homer is a small town on the Kenai Peninsula in Southwest Alaska that captures the Alaskan charm and beauty. Four hours south of Anchorage, Homer has been called “The Halibut Fishing Capital of the World.” Near Katmai National Park, Homer is also known for wild animal spotting, hiking and marine life. Book a trip to Homer, “where the land and sea begins”, today!
Thousands come to Homer each year for some of the best fishing and hiking in Alaska. Go on a fishing trip with Homer Ocean Charters for halibut and salmon fishing around Kachemak Bay. Whales and sea otters are often spotted in the waters, so be sure to bring your camera! Go on a bear tour to see even more wildlife—you may even catch the bears fishing for salmon! There are also helicopter tours that give the most magnificent views of Homer and the national park. Any one of these adventures will have a lifetime of memories and make you want to come back to Hoer time and time again.
Homer is quite literally the end of the road, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t places in the area to explore! Take a ferry to the quaint town of Seldovia for only $45 round trip. Seldovia has a historic boardwalk, kayaking and even more fishing adventures. Water taxis are also offered to surrounding islands, like Glacier Spit. Drive about three and half hours or take a bus to Katmai National Park for a hike to Exit Glacier. The glacier is unique in that you can go right up to it and see all of its beauty. This somewhat strenuous hike takes about two and a half hours, but there are also flight tours offered.

Getting around Homer is pretty easy by car, bicycle or taxi. The Homer Airport can get you back to Anchorage, which has international flights leaving hourly.
