Get the big view by air
Some say the best way to see Alaska is from the air. A bird's eye view definitely helps get a handle on the state's sheer size and vast wilderness areas. It also offers breath-taking views of a myriad of special places inaccessible by road.
Whether you are looking to head to the backcountry or get in some sightseeing, the floatplane, airplane and helicopter charter companies operating in Homer will provide you with panoramic views of Kachemak Bay and beyond that just aren't possible when you stay on the ground. Just imagine flying over glaciers and volcanoes.
Both Beluga Lake and the Homer Airport are home to these air-service companies, which provide scheduled and non-scheduled departures. They're also a wealth of information to help you plan your trip.
Going by air can provide more time for the Alaska adventure you have in mind. Just minutes from take-off, you can find solitude and great fishing far from the crowds of the road-system rivers or get high into the tundra above Kachemak Bay, eliminating hours of arduous climbing from sea level.
If you have something more subdued in mind, charter airplane and helicopter companies also offer a variety of flightseeing and photography tours.
