Visiting Halibut Cove

Fishing village and arts mecca

The village of Halibut Cove, Alaska, is rich with history.

We are on indigenous land.... Stillpoint Lodge is situated within the tribal lands of the Seldovia Village Tribe, whose decendants trace their roots from the ancient Kachemak Bay peoples and today's Dena'ina and Sugpiaq people. We acknowledge this land and the indigenous people who reside here still and have made innumerable contributions to our region.

Originally settled in 1911 by Scandinavian fishermen, many of Halibut Cove’s residents still fish for salmon, halibut, and pacific cod in Kachemak Bay. Local shellfish farmers also take advantage of the deep, crystal clear, nutrient dense waters for sustainably growing oysters and blue mussels.

A high proportion of residents are artists who exhibit their work at a local gallery on the island. The cove provides a majestic setting for a unique experience.

Home to one of the only floating post offices in the U.S., Halibut Cove is Alaskan coastal living at its finest. Isolated and quaint, with only 23 year-round residents, the close proximity to Homer just 10 miles across the bay, makes the cove an ideal basecamp for your Alaska vacation.
