Homer Chamber of Commerce Featured

Homer is the Kenai Peninsula's home base for great fishing (“The Halibut Fishing Capital of the World”), kayaking, bear viewing, hiking, foodie and art vacations. It's the jump off point for air charters to Katmai bears. Homer is quickly becoming known also as the Eco & Adventure tourism destination of Alaska. The setting is unique: stunning Kachemak Bay.

And just across the Bay, less than 10 miles from the Homer Spit, is the state's only designated wilderness park – Kachemak Bay State Wilderness Park. Local water taxis specialize in bringing outdoor lovers to the trailheads and campgrounds of the park.

The Winter King Salmon Tournament in March, Shorebird Festival in May, and the summer-long Jackpot Halibut Derby makes Homer a hoppin' place to visit. Returning this year - a strong run of silver salmon to the "Fishing Hole" on the Spit
