Located a short flight or scenic drive from Alaska's main travel hub of Anchorage, Homer is without doubt one of Alaska's most beautiful destinations. A stop at the top of Homer Hill rewards you with beautiful views of steaming volcanoes, picturesque Kachemak Bay, pristine glaciers, and snow-topped mountains which rise from the sea. World renowned for fishing, Homer is also home to art galleries, museums, state parks, fine dining, and award-winning accommodations.
Homer's protected fishing grounds and super abundant halibut population make it a mecca for sportfishermen. Most days it's not a question of whether or not you'll catch fish, it's a question of how many and how BIG?! Many groups of anglers who fish for multiple days will return home with HUNDREDS of pounds of fish!
Most fishermen visiting Homer choose to rent a car in Anchorage and drive to Homer. If fishing for multiple days, you may want to consider renting a van so you'll have room to take all that fish home with you! If flying to Homer, you will need to book the Anchorage to Homer portion of your flight with either ERA Aviation or Grant Aviation. Links for both ERA and Grant can be found below:
