Nurture the inner naturalist

There are many kayaking adventures around Homer, including the Kachemak Bay Water Trail. This 125-mile route extends from the Homer Spit and heads east and south along Kachemak Bay to the tiny community of Seldovia. Take a guided paddle trip and pass by diverse habitat, from intertidal areas to alpine trails, soaring mountains and ice-blue glaciers – all host spectacular wildlife viewing opportunities.

Continue your nature exploration with forest and glacier hikes, or by peering into tidepools. Enjoy naturalist-led guided walks at the Carl Wynn Nature Center, dock tours with an up-close look at marine creatures, or day trips across Kachemak Bay to Peterson Bay Field Station, a living laboratory of biological diversity. Also, be sure to check out the exhibits at the Alaska Islands and Oceans Visitor Center to discover the wonders of marine wildlife.
