The Best Place to Go Kayaking in Alaska
Can you Kayak in Homer, Alaska
Yes! Enjoy guided kayaking from basecamps near Halibut Cove, Tutka Bay, or Petersen Bay, all located in the heart of Kachemak Bay State Park. The central locations have a wealth of diverse paddling routes to choose from. Kachemak Bay is often touted as one of the world’s richest ecosystems.
What should I Wear When I go Sea Kayaking?
Always dress warm and always bring protection from the sun! Sunlight reflects off the water, and if you are out for long enough, you will get sunburnt! Put on a layer of sunscreen, bring sunglasses, and make sure to dress in layers of non-cotton material! Cotton easily absorbs water and can put you at risk for hypothermia.
What do you See When you Kayak in Alaska?
You will be transported from the Homer Spit to one of our popular kayaking areas. View picturesque fjords, mountain peaks, and marine life such as whales and schools of fish on our 25 minute ride. Enjoy an approximate 3 or 7-hour kayak adventure, depending on if you choose a 1/2-day or full-day experience if you are looking for a trip to really remember. Kayakers have the opportunity to kayak to hike, and view wildlife, depending on the time of year and weather.
