Three days on the Kenai Peninsula: Homer or Seward?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are going to Alaska at the end of July. We'll arrive in Anchorage late at night, and the next morning will pick up a car that is reserved for four days. We have to be back in Anchorage for a flight on the morning of the fifth day. I want to see the Kenai Peninsula and do some fishing while we're there.

So far have two scenarios in mind: 1.) B&B for three nights in Homer, with a fishing charter one day, just for the halibut ;) (however, I am prone to seasickness); or, 2.) spend two nights in Seward, with a trip to Kenai Fjords NP, and one night near Cooper Landing, taking a drift boat trip for salmon.
What I like about #1 is that we would be in one place. But halibut fishing on the ocean seems to be the main choice there, and I'm wary of seasickness (is there no salmon fishing in nearby rivers?).
What I like about #2 is that there is less driving, and I could go out for salmon on the river.

Looking to the experts out in Fodorland to offer their insights on the relative merits of Homer vs Seward as towns for sightseeing opportunities, local ambience, etc. Any fishing opportunities that I may not be considering. Thanks!
