Homer, Alaska

Homer, Alaska

Homer is a city located in Kenai Peninsula Borough in the U.S. state of Alaska. It is located on beautiful Kachemak Bay, among rolling hills and overlooking the bay and the Kenai Mountains. In addition to the downtown area of Homer, a unique attraction is the Homer Spit, a long, narrow finger of land jutting 4.5 miles into Kachemak Bay. The Spit is home to Homer harbour and over 700 charter and commercial boat operators year round, growing to 1,500 in the summer months.

During the summer, Homer is famous for halibut fishing, and at the beginning of the fall, in September, there are a few weeks when the so-called Fishing Hole is literally filled-up with salmon. While in or around Homer you could also see moose grazing, a black bear crossing the road, puffins, seabirds, soaring eagles, sea otters, porpoises, killer whales, porcupine, harbor seal, beluga whales and more .
