About the event

Hesketh Island is a remote, rocky outcropping in Kachemak Bay near Homer, Alaska. It’s a stunning setting, surrounded by fantastical rock formations and rich marine life. Homebase will be the Smokey Bay Chalet, a gorgeous house with an open kitchen and wrap-around deck with views of Augustine volcano. There’s also a sauna that sits over a stream at the edge of the beach, views of live volcanoes, bushes full of berries and a sea otter that likes to paddle by.
