Fodor's Expert Review Halibut Cove

Kachemak Bay State Park and State Wilderness Park Town/Village

A small artists' community directly across from the tip of the 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. The Danny J ferries people across from the Spit, with a tour of the rookery at Gull Island ($66) and three hours to walk around Halibut Cove. The Danny J also provides a daily dinner cruise to The Saltry Restaurant ($41). Central Charters and The Saltry Restaurant handle all bookings. Several lodges are on this side of the bay, on pristine coves away from summer crowds. Mako's Taxi also provides service to most of the lodging destinations in the area.
