Located in south central Alaska's Kenai Peninsula, Homer is a 45-minute flight or a scenic five-hour drive from Anchorage. At the end of the road system, Homer (population 5500) is the largest of several small communities nestled around Kachemak Bay. The snow-capped Kenai Range dominates the south side of the bay, while the 4.5 mile Homer Spit protrudes from Homer on the north side. No roads exist to get from one side of the bay to the other, hence residents and visitors alike rely on boats and planes to take them beyond the end of the road.


Water Taxi and Tours

Bay Excursions provides birding and wildlife tours, plus water taxi service to the trail heads and cabins in Kachemak Bay State Park on the south side. Not bound by set schedules or specific routes, we can take you when and where you would like to go. Lifelong Alaskan Karl Stoltzfus, owner and operator of Bay Excursions, has lived and operated boats on the waters of Kachemak Bay for over 45 years.Karl in Torega copyright and photographer Karl Stoltzfus
