Took the hop-on, hop-off bus to town. It made four stops in front of concentrated shop areas, (two directly across the street from each other. Not sure why they did that.) $20 bucks for ten mile trip a little high. Would have been nice if the bus also stopped at the Spit but you had to return to the ship and catch a different shuttle for that. At least that one was free. Read Less

Homer sits in a beautful spot, framed by water and snow- capped mountains We took the shuttle provided from the Homer spit into town. The Pratt Museum was small, but interesting. We then walked to the Islands and Oceans Visitor Center, which was terrific, and included a hike to a slough. Finally, we enjoyed some fresh halibut fish and chips at Captain Patties out on the spit Read Less

We did two tours. The first took us down to the docks to discover the animals that lived there and to learn about the different kind of fishing boats. The second was a harbor cruise where saw amazing birds and lots of sea ottersl

Fun little spit of land. Lots of shops had closed for the season, but still had fun walking around.

Went back to the Homer Spit and had a drink at the Salt Dog and then just walked up and down the spit stopping for lunch at Captain Paddie's which was recommended to us. The scenery was beautiful.

We went to the Three Sisters Bakery and it was very good, but I would not go out of my way to go there again, we have bakeries that are just as good here at home and I did not think it was all that special. We did take a taxi out to the Bear Creek Winery and loved doing the wine tasting - they do have very unique wines there - and enjoyed walking around the grounds. Didn't seem like a whole lot else to do in this port if you didn't take a nature tour of some sort. Read Less

My only activity at this port was to go to the Salty Dawg Saloon for a few beers. This is an institution for Homer, not to be missed because of its historic importance.

Homer is a gorgeous place to spend time wandering about. We returned to the ship, got fresh drinks, and went to the deck to watch the sea planes land and take off. Relaxing time with gorgeous scenery.

Took Hop on Hop off bus tour. As port of Homer is small, there is little to see and do in Homer. However, what little there maybe is very interesting.

We did the Best of the Bay cruise. This was excellent. We saw seals, puffins, eagles and Orca Whales. The captain and her crew did a great job.

Stayed on the Spit this time. Not much going on in Homer itself $30.00 for 2 bus ride not worth it.

Walked around the spit. Went to lands end and back to the Sawlty Dawg Saloon - cool place with free Wi-Fi! Stopped at a few stores (comparison shop a bit for best deals). Caught the convenient FREE shuttle from Saloon back to the ship.
