Stroll the Homer Spit
No trip to Homer is complete without taking a trip down the 4.5-mile “Spit” – a thin sliver of land where Kachemak Bay meets Cook Inlet. The Spit is the remains of an ancient glacial moraine, constantly reshaped by ocean currents. Archaeological finds reveal the Spit was used by people long before written history. Today, it’s known as the “end of the road” and a gathering place for everyone from campers and fishermen to shoppers and artists. Many outfitters have storefronts along the Spit, spots where visitors can sign up for fishing, bear viewing, water taxi rides, kayaking, or other adventures. Wander the harbor and see the fishermen’s catch of the day, talk with local artists, or taste fresh seafood at one of the many restaurants built on stilts high above the rocky shoreline. Visitors who can’t get enough, or who want to be close to where their fishing charter is taking off, can camp on the Spit or book a room right on the water.
