Turnagain Gallery

This is a family-owned and operated gallery specializing in jewelry and chainsaw carvings. They feature pieces that were masterfully crafted by the family themselves, all of whom are talented artists.

Alyeska Tram

Enjoy a scenic ride to the top of Mt. Alyeska. You will climb 2300 feet on the tram. As you gain altitude, the mountains, hanging glaciers, sparkling streams, and vast expanses of forest fall away below you in a breathtaking landscape. Enjoy lunch at the Bore Tide Deli at the top of the tram. Don’t miss the photo ops from the observation decks.

Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center

The conservation center has a variety of native Alaskan animals. The goal of the center is to conserve Alaska’s diverse wildlife, and most of the animals they have in their care were orphaned or injured. This provides a great opportunity to safely observe some of our native wildlife.


Come with us and enjoy a day of art-viewing, wine-sipping and exploring local culture in the Halibut Capital of the World. We will show you some of our favorite spots, grab lunch on the iconic Homer spit, and take in all the sights that Kachemak Bay has to offer.

Norman Lowell Gallery

Norman Lowell moved to Alaska 50 years ago to “paint the wild north country”. His gallery offers a very personal look into the experience of the artist. Lowell designed the gallery in exact detail so we can see what Alaska looks like through his eyes. Some of his most famous collections are for sale in the show room.

Homer Spit

The famed Homer Spit is packed with great restaurants and art galleries. On a drive to the end of the Spit, you will get incredible panoramic views of the bay and surrounding mountains. The Spit is the bustling heart of Homer, and not to be missed.

Bear Creek Winery

Just a short drive out of town, this family owned winery is famous for its award winning sweet berry wines made from local Alaskan berries. They have grown in popularity due to their experimentation with all kinds of fruits, they provide a wide variety of wines ranging from Blueberry Mirlo to their ever-popular Strawberry-Rhubarb. After you choose your favorite wine from the tasting room, enjoy a glass (or two) in the garden where they grow their famous rhubarb. The winery also prides itself on their eco-friendly and buy-local policies.


The charming remote town of Seldovia is only accessible by a 45 minute ferry ride across Kachemak Bay. The town can be explored on foot, with one historical main street and the Otterbahn Nature Trail close by. Seldovia is a one-of-a-kind town and well worth a visit.
