Halibut Cove is a little jewel tucked away in
Alaska's first state park, Kachemak Bay State Park. The park area is a
total of 400,000 acres of mountains, glaciers, forests, coastline and
ocean. Visitors frequently observe sea otters, harbor seals, porpoise,
and a variety of whale species. Halibut Cove welcomes the many visitors
it hosts each and every year, but at the same time makes every effort to
ensure that Halibut Cove remains the beautiful, quiet paradise it has
become famous for. Residents are a close-knit community and value their
peace and their privacy. Halibut Cove is a living experience like no
other and I am sure any of the residence will confirm that statement!!
