Our tour continues into the quaint community of Halibut Cove, where guests can see a real Alaska “bush” village, completely separated from the road system. Hear colorful stories of this historic corner of Alaska.  Our private dock in Halibut Cove gives us access to a 1.5-mile walk to a nearby glacier lake.  Guests are “awed” by the views of the mile-wide Grewingk Glacier dropping into the awe-inspiring lake. Guests can actually touch a 5,000-year-old piece of ice!  Hike back to the boat, and return to Homer.
