Absolutely gorgeous with it's mountains and water. We saw it with the sun shinning and with clouds. Both were unique. Be sure to stop at the top of the hill pull-off on the way into town and get the full view of the Homer Spit. Kayaking is super here.

We hiked and kayaked to the Grewingk glacier. It was something I will never forget. We kayaked through icebergs and had lunch on the shore. The wildlife was eye catching and memorable as well. I cannot wait to go back!

My daughter and I loved our 5-mile hike here! We took the water taxi (Mako's) from Homer, which basically means that we were driven by boat across the water, dropped on the beach, had the trailhead pointed out to us, and were told when to be at the pick-up spot. We took the trail to Grewingk Glacier, which was peaceful... More

A beautiful place to know. Leaving for a boat ride throut the bay, you can see wildlife ( otters, whales, pufins), enjoy the florest ending in the ocean, the beautiful rock formation near the shores. Stop in a desert little island. for a picnic. Great place for a wonderful day.

Our trip was good but the rain did not allow us to have so much fun as expected. Check the weather before you book the trip. Captain Mark is an amazing and very knowledgeable of geology, wildlife and history. He was the highlight of the tour. He went out of his way to show us the wildlife

Get on a boat or in a kayak to explore incredible Kachemak Bay. Visit the coves-Halibut Cove, Sadie. For a real adventure fly into the Was and go rock climbing.

If you can afford the water taxi over ($200 average with tip), you should definitely check out this park. Hikes for all levels and some beautiful views of glaciers. We went on a family hike with our 2 year old on backpack, and were able to squeeze in lunch at the Grewing Lake in under 3 hours.
