Homer Alaska

Homer has the unique attraction of the 2nd longest “Spit” in the world. The Homer Spit is a natural geologic phenomenon formed initially by terminal glacial moraine and juts 5 miles out into Kachemak Bay. It is a great jumping off place for endless adventures in and across Kachemak Bay and is home to the Homer Port and Harbor where vessels of all shapes, sizes, and uses can be seen. The “Time Bandit”, made famous on the TV show “The Deadliest Catch” calls the Homer harbor home and can be seen whenever it is in port.

Homer offers endless activities throughout the year for the whole family. Fall gives a bountiful harvest of wild berries and with winter comes both alpine and cross-country skiing. Dog sledding, skijoring and ice-skating vie for attention among locals and adventurous winter tourists.

Visit Homer Alaska on the Kenai Penninsula

Wildlife cruises of Kachemak Bay and King salmon fishing are offered throughout the winter months and of course, nothing is more exciting than seeing the beautiful Aurora Borealis. As spring approaches locals gear up for both commercial and sport fishing expeditions and before you realize it, summer has arrived once again, and it is time for 19-hours of daylight and nonstop fun.
Homer was named for Homer Pennock, a gold miner who established the first development on the Homer Spit in 1896. Today’s Homer Alaska is a thriving community of approximately 5,400 residents. Across the sparkling waters of Kachemak Bay, the rugged Kenai Mountains spread east, west, and south. Soaring snowcapped peaks overlook massive glaciers crawling toward the sea. Along the coastline, the steep mountain valleys form narrow fjords. It is one of the few places in the world, if not the only one, where several glaciers and active volcanoes can be viewed at the same time.omer is at the southwest tip of the Kenai Peninsula on Kachemak Bay. The  town lies 225 paved highway miles from Anchorage and is easily accessible  by highway, sea, or air.
