The views across the bay are incredible, especially with binoculars. Watching the fisherman bring in their catch is fun, and learning about the fishing lifestyle is great.

If you go to Homer your visit is not complete without going to the spit. Take your time to visit shops and have a meal, or two, in one of the restaurants. Enjoy a fishing charter or just people watch.

From the beaches, to shopping to dining, the spit has it all during the summer season. If you want solitude then winter is the time to visit but dress warm and grab a meal at Lands' End.

Great restaurants and shopping village as well. Salty Dogs tavern a must. Park in the middle of spit and walk up and down you will have a blast. You could stay here all day.

I would start looking as soon as you exit Anchorage,there were dozens of them out on the flats at low tide,this was in may though couldn't see that it would make much difference as they still need a feed.
