“Alaska is too expensive” OR “Lies you can stop telling yourself”

“Alaska is too expensive”
“Someday, when we can afford it, well go to Alaska”
“I’ve always wanted to go to Alaska, but I hear its really pricey”

These are a few of the things I hear when talking to people about what I do for a living.

It irks me, because it’s not true. It’s really not!   Many people assume that traveling to Alaska and going fishing, or kayaking by a glacier, or watching whales involves mortgaging the farm, or selling that dented but loved ’97 Dodge Neon in the driveway. The truth is it can cost about the same as going anywhere in the lower 48 – sometimes even way less.

What is the Best of Alaska Tour? Kayaking, Fishing, Sightseeing in a day!

What makes the Best of Alaska Tour the “Best of Alaska”?

Fish, Kayak, and Sight See Glaciers - Best of Alaska Tour at Miller's Landing

Our Best of Alaska trip takes you to the glaciers for an ice specific paddle, provides a meal, fishing for 4 hours for rock fish and salmon (in season), and sightseeing to the National Park, all in the same day, in a small group setting. It’s definitely the best deal around!

It’s a bold statement. We get it. “Best of Alaska” is a big thing to claim. Why would we dare?
Well… There are a lot of logistical issues when you plan your trip to Alaska – tons of pros and cons to each decision made. Seward is a really dynamic place with a LOT going on that’s at the top of a lot of traveler’s lists. Planning is a huge issue for most groups and it often feels impossible to make everybody happy.  Sometimes you figure out how to make everyone happy, but then you can’t line out how to actually get them to each activity as they all leave at different times.
The Best of Alaska Tour isn’t just Glacier Kayaking in the National Park, it’s not just a half day fishing charter, and it’s not just a Kenai Fjords Tour through the Chiswells, Aialik or Northwestern. It’s all three, and it’s the answer to a bevy of group travel concerns and issues.
