Kachemak Bay — Critical Habitat Area
Visitor Information

Public Use and Access

Homer Spit is the main access point to the bay, with access also gained through Seldovia and other small communities. In the summer, sport fishing for halibut and salmon and wildlife watching tours are very popular, as is clamming on low tides throughout the year. Halibut and salmon are the mainstays of the local commercial fisheries as well. The pristine protected waters on the south side of the bay have attracted interest in mariculture.
