Homer claims to be the “Halibut Capital of the World” but if things keep up it may add serious whale watching to the menu of cool stuff to do.
We’ve always had some whales hanging around the bay part of the year but, at this moment, the main fleet is in and has been for awhile.
Humpbacks, minke and orcas are cruising around Kachemak Bay and off the end of the Homer Spit in such numbers that it looks like a major geyser event in Yellowstone National Park.
Some Dall’s porpoises even blew through in a rare late season appearance around the end of September.
