This biannual event, open to all BOOP families, is held during a spring weekend in Homer. This activity is family driven and is not an Anchorage School District event. Families are responsible for transportation and lodging. Some families camp in tents, others stay in campers, or reserve rooms at the Driftwood Inn, the Ocean Shores or other places of choice. Sea Week often coincides with either the Shorebird Festival, Mother’s Day weekend &/or the weekend with the optimum low tide. Saturday is usually spent investigating tide pools, visiting the city of Homer, and enjoying a potluck barbecue, kite-flying and games on the beach. A Sunday activity — such as a boat ride across the bay or a guided tour of tidal pools — requires early reservations and prepayment to receive a group discount.
