Just Head to the Salty Dawg...


When we arrived in Homer, Alaska, we had never even heard of this fantastic little town nestled on the southern tip of the Kenai Peninsula. We were fishing for halibut off Point, and someone mentioned the Homer Spit. We decided to head down to check it out. No Homer Alaska Map was needed - we just went looking for the end of the road.


 Homer, Alaska, is a destination with natural beauty, cultural richness, and maritime heritage. We were entranced when we drove over Baycrest Hill and saw the beautiful Cook Inlet and mountains in the distance.
