Myself, My wife, my boys (13 & 17), and my mom (probably in better shape than us all) will be flying into ANC about 1pm on June 10, 2014. Flying home from ANC on June 24, 2014. We have flights, rental car, and lodging booked. First 7 nights in Soldatna, house on the Kenai river. Next 4 nights in Homer. Last 3 nights in Wasilla in a lake cabin. We are active and are open to almost anything, but I want to keep the budget under control. I'm hoping the reds are running and we can catch them from the shore, might want to try for Kings, any suggestions? Looks like the tides would be great for clamming. Turnagain arm worth seeing more than on the way to Sodatna? Day trip to Seward for the 9 hour boat ride. Good time of year for whales? Homer - Seldovia trip, maybe Halibut. Any other must do's? Better to kayak in Seward or Homer? Wasilla - Hatcher pass, drive to a glacier. Any suggestions for some other activities? Gold panning? Worthwhile hikes? Do I need to be concerned about bears this early in the year or are their places I can see them without spending an arm and a leg? Any non-touristy suggestions?
