The Homer "Spit" Kachemak Bay - Homer AK

Homer, Alaska is a leisurely 4 to 5 hour drive south
of Anchorage. It is a beautiful small town located on Kachemak Bay. The
Homer "Spit" is where most dive trips in Kachemak Bay start. The Spit is
the largest natural spit in North America. There is usually good diving
for dungeness crab during early and mid summer. The Ferry Dock is a
good dive site, but usually has poor visibility and can have a great
deal of current due to its location at the end of the Spit.

The other side of Kachemak Bay offers the best
diving in Southcentral Alaska. Locations such as Tutka Bay, Jakolof Bay,
Yukon Island, and Seldovia offer a great variety of sea life and dive
topography. The only ways to get to this side of the Bay is by boat or
the small airstrip in Seldovia.

I never dove there. I caught fish in Kachemak though. God the water is cold in the bay.
