Staying in Halibut Cove
From Anchorage, Homer is a 40 minute flight or a 4.5 hour scenic drive south through the Kenai Peninsula.
Once in Homer, on the Homer Spit, you can arrange a water taxi to bring you from the harbor to our beach. You get to enjoy a scenic 20 minute boat ride over to the cabins with a chance to see whales, otters, seals, and birds.
There are no grocery stores in Halibut Cove and, due to Covid-19, the only restaurant and the coffee shop on the island are closed, so all of your food and beverages must be purchased in Homer and brought to the Cove with you.
Alaska Shellfish Farms is located on the backside of the Cove. We are more than happy to get fresh, local oysters and mussels for you to enjoy during your stay, and we can even offer some recipe suggestions for you to try.
