Adventures On the Alaskan Coast

Create your own Alaskan Adventure

Kachemak Bay State Wilderness Park is the perfect place for your next adventure. The park attracts adventure seekers and outdoor enthusiasts, as well as the casual traveler year-round, but is only accessible by boat or plane.


If you’re looking for an excursion into Alaska’s first state park—and only wilderness park—Coldwater Alaska is authorized by the Alaska Department of Natural Resources to operate water taxi services to the area.

Enjoy a fast and comfortable 20 to 30-minute boat ride from Homer to the Park and gain access to some of Alaska’s most popular remote destinations for hiking, camping, photography, backcountry skiing, kayaking, and more.
