Homer Small-Boat Harbor, protected by a breakwater, is just NW of the City Pier. A light on the outer end of the breakwater marks the entrance. A dredged channel leads between the breakwaters to the beginning of the piers at the SE end, thence turns NW to separate the basin in half.

The basins on either side of the entrance channel are maintained by local interests. In September 1994, the controlling depth in the entrance channel was 16 feet (19 feet at midchannel) in the entrance channel to the beginning of the piers, thence 14 feet. In 1989, there were depths of 14 to 20 feet in the SE part of the basin and in November 1989, 10 to 15 feet in the NW part with lesser depths toward the SW edge.

The harbor has 920 reserved moorage, plus a additional 6800 lineal feet of transient moorage; the harbormaster assigns berths. The harbormaster's office monitors VHF-FM channel 16; channels 10 and 68 are used as working frequencies.

During the summer this basin is very crowded. Electricity is available on some floats, and gasoline, diesel fuel, and water are available at a floating fuel pier at the SE end of the basin. A 100-foot steel grid, a 152-foot wood grid, and a launching & barge ramp are also available. The basin is owned and operated by the city.
