About Halibut Cove

Halibut Cove is tucked away in Alaska's first state park, Kachemak Bay State Park, comprised of 400,000 acres of mountains, glaciers, forests, coastline and ocean. There are no roads to Halibut Cove so getting there is possible only by boat or plane, but the community is only 12 miles across Kachemak Bay from Homer and the famous Homer Spit, and getting across the bay is one of the perks of your visit.  The crossing can provide viewings of amazing wildlife, including whales, sea otters, seals and seabirds. Halibut Cove is a special place; an artists’ community with two galleries open to visitors throughout the summer months. While there are no roads, visitors can walk the paths and 12 blocks of boardwalk that skirts the water’s edge and provides a scenic view of the mountainous east side of Kachemak Bay. There are two restaurants and a coffee shop, but no grocery store, so supplies should be purchased in Homer and brought to the Cove.

Meet Your Hosts

We're Chris, Marja & Eva, and we have been exploring and loving Alaska for the past twenty years and can't wait to share with you what makes it so special.  


Originally from the East Coast, we used to take Eva hiking in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, kayaking in the Atlantic and enjoying some of the best restaurants and cultural activities in New York City.  Suffice to say, it took a truly magical place to uproot us. 


We hear from folks all the time that Alaska is "on their bucket list", but the only way they know of to experience it is on a cruise.  Cruises can be great, but to even scratch the surface of a state as large as 1/3 of the US, you need get off the ship!  We can help you create a bucket-list worthy Alaskan vacation that will have you coming back year after year.
