The Kenai Peninsula and Southcentral Alaska Sights

Kachemak Bay

  • Body Of Water/Waterfall

Updated 08/19/2014

Fodor's Review

The bay abounds with wildlife, including a large population of puffins and eagles. Tour operators take visitors past bird rookeries or across the bay to gravel beaches for clam digging. Most fishing charters include an opportunity to view whales, seals, porpoises, and birds close up. At the end of the day, walk along the docks on Homer Spit and watch commercial fishing boats and charter boats unload their catch. Across the bay from Homer Spit lies Kachemak Bay State Park and State Wilderness Park, one of the largest coastal parks in America.
