Plan your Trip
ANCHORAGE to ANCHOR POINT or HOMER!
- PLAN A:
Fly to Anchorage.Take a 40 minute RAVN AIR commuter flight to Homer.
Grab a cab (907-399-8008) or
rent a rig at Polar Car Rental (800-876-6417) at the airport.
Adventure Alaska Car Rental is near the airport. (800-882-2808)
- PLAN B: Fly to Anchorage. Rent a car or motorhome. Drive 209 miles on a scenic 2 lane paved highway to Anchor Point. Homer is 16 more miles and the end of the Homer Spit is another 4.5 miles. Allow 5 hours especially in July. Depart ANC near high tide and you might see snowy white Beluga whales close to the highway. Snowy white Dall sheep are often there as well. If you leave ANC on a big tide day just after low tide you might see a 6 foot wall of water called a bore tide flooding over the mud flats. The second highest tides in the world occur there. And watch out for moose! They like the early growth that a sun warmed roadbed provides. If you have more than 5 hours to make the drive, the Milepost travel guide is very informative about lots to do every mile of the way. Milepost.com
