Homer

Homer Day Cruises, Day Fishing Charters & Tours

The city of Homer, Alaska is positioned at the tip of Kachemak Bay in Southcentral Alaska – as far west as you can drive on the North American continent. Founded in 1896 by gold rush enthusiasts, Homer offers visitors a thriving art community and regional sport and commercial fishing center.

The magnificent location of Homer and the appeal of its lifestyle set it apart from other small communities in Alaska. Homer is known as the halibut fishing capital of the world and 100 pound halibut catches are not uncommon. From the Homer Spit a fleet of fishing charters depart daily on fishing and sightseeing cruises into Kachemak Bay, and the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge. For sightseers, the Alaska Islands and Ocean Visitor Center offers great exhibits on the history of the region as well as wildlife habitats in one of the richest marine ecosystems in the world.
