Kenai Peninsula, Prince William Sound, and Homer Sights

Halibut Cove

Updated 08/19/2014

Fodor's Review

A small artists' community directly across from the tip of Homer Spit, Halibut Cove is a fine place to spend time meandering along the boardwalk and visiting galleries. The cove is lovely, especially during salmon runs, when fish leap and splash in the clear water. Several lodges are on this side of the bay, on pristine coves away from summer crowds. The Danny J ferries people across from Homer Spit, with a stop at the rookery at Gull Island and two or three hours

to walk around Halibut Cove. The ferry makes two trips daily: the first ($58) leaves Homer at noon and returns at 5 pm, and the second ($35) leaves at 5 pm and returns at 10 pm. Central Charters and the Saltry Restaurant handle all bookings.
