Recommendations in Homer

Where to camp? When the weather is nice, the tent campground on the Homer Spit can't be beat, bring some firewood and enjoy the waves. Cottonwood Cabins also offers camping and is a beautiful space to experience the boreal countryside of Homer.

Fishing Charters - Homer is the halibut fishing capital of the world. Book with one of these personally vetted charters for a world class experience: Alaska Saltwater Adventures and Tenacious Charters

Bear Viewing -
Emerald Air Service is our recommendation for the ultimate bear viewing experience.

Local Flights _ Smokey Bay Air is our reccomendation for flightseeing and transport to the villages and hiking across cookinlet.

Restaurants - Fresh Catch, Lands End Chart Room Restaurant, The Cannery and the Saltry are all great places to eat.
Finn's Pizza and Home Run Pizza and Twisted Goat are the best. Swell Taco, Tickled Pear and Latitude 59 are perfect for light fare and Captain's Coffee and Wild Honey Bistro hit the spot.  Homer also hosts 3 Thai restaurants that are all great!

We do not have a brick and mortar storefront. We can meet you at the Homer Airport or your place of lodging within 5 miles of Homer city limits to pick up/drop off the vehicle.  We can do farther but will ask compensation for the time and fuel depending on the distance.

Can we pick up/drop off the vehicle in Anchorage?

We are a small, family-owned business in Homer, Ak. We do not yet have the ability to also have a location in Anchorage. That means it costs us $600 + 2 rental days + taxes to take a vehicle one-way from Anchorage to Homer.
