The Famous "Spit"

1When people think of the "The Spit" they think of bustling fishing charters, miles of beaches, a beautiful boat harbor and so much more. However, viewing the Homer Spit during the winter can be a real adventure also. Just a very different kind of adventure. The Spit basically has it's own weather pattern at times and can be treacherously beautiful. An example is the photo below. Driving The Spit in the winter time. You can click to enlarge it.

Alaska Tour Adventures & Ferry  

Welcome to

Homer is a beautiful "hamlet by the sea" with a slow way of life, and warm friendly people. Come and experience true Alaskan hospitality at it's finest. With a view of four of Alaska's active volcanoes, the only thing that surpasses the hospitality is the scenery! There is scheduled air service across the bay from Homer daily and there are direct flights from Anchorage. Come and visit us for a day or a week. You'll love it!

Here we sit upon the Spit
Awaiting the "Blue Canoe"
From in our car home seems so far
But soon we'll be with you.

Homer’s climate is moderated by the Pacific Ocean, resulting in warmer winters and cooler summers than seen in places farther inland in Alaska. The average maximum temperature is 29.2 degrees F in January and 60.9 degrees F in July. The average minimum temperature is 16.7 degrees F in January and 46.3 degrees F in July. Average total annual precipitation is 24.4 inches, with 54.9 inches of snowfall, and 5 inches average snow depth in February.
