Living The Dream, 100 Days of Summer – OR – A Day in Operating an Alaskan Summer Camp

100 Days of Fishing, Kayaking, Camping, Water Taxis & More Doesn’t sound so tough, does it? Enter a day in the life of Elijah, Miller’s Landing’s Operations Manager. Your alarm goes off at 5AM. It might as well be noon, it hasn’t been dark at night for a month.      Hopefully you got a…

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

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

2017 Was an Amazing Season – Thank You!

2017 was FULL of Fishing, Kayaking, Camping and Alaskan Wilderness Adventure!   Now that we’ve slowed down a bit and gotten close to weatherproofing most of our equipment, said goodbye to the last of our summer staff, and had a chance to breathe, it’s time to reflect back on all the excitement the season brought! We explored, tested, and put into service some amazing new Fishing & Kayaking products and assets this season – Check them out! Stabicraft Skiff Rentals featuring 90hp Honda outboards and Raymarine electronics packages were a pleasant hit with our local visitors and repeat rental clients! Northwestern Fjord Full Day Kayaking excursions allowed some of the first guided day trip offerings to this phenomenal area in Seward. Best of Alaska Tour featuring Fishing, Glacier Kayaking, and Sightseeing to the Fjords was a total blast! Our new…

Miller’s Landing History & Lowell Point Activities

Miller’s Landing Campground History and Lowell Point Activities View this email in your browser What is a “Miller’s Landing”? Miller’s Landing is located in the small secluded community of Lowell Point just 2½ miles south of Seward. It has very special and unique Alaskan charm, and is literally the “end of the road”. Where the road ends on Lowell Point, The Alaska State Parks and the Kenai Fjords National Parks systems begin. The panoramic view from our campground and storefront porch is unbeatable – ask any Sewardite! It includes Resurrection Bay, the City of Seward, Mount Alice, Caines Head, and the barrier islands that protect the region from the Gulf of Alaska: Fox Island, Hive Island, and Rugged Island. It’s a common mistake  to refer to the whole community as Miller’s Landing which doesn’t always go over well with the local…

Miller’s Landing at the Minnesota Sportsman’s Show

Minnesota Sportsman’s Show View this email in your browser Thank you for stopping by our booth at the Minnesota Sportsman’s Show in Saint Paul – our very first trade show! We appreciate your time talking with us, you may have been able to tell but Capt. Chance was very nervous! The overwhelming warmth and friendliness of the convention participants, both those exhibiting and those passing through, was incredible. Learning experiences walking away from the show were plentiful: An overwhelming majority of people were interested or surprised to hear that their trip to Alaska could be arranged at whatever budget they wanted to work with.  That the trip they always wanted to do didn’t have to be at an all inclusive lodge or remote location.  Our being on the road system and having direct flights from Minneapolis made the dream to…

What is a Fox Willie?

        Miller’s Landing welcomes an addition to the crew View this email in your browser We had to do it. Folks, all great things come to an end. Sometimes, that means an amazing opportunity for a new beginning and we think this is one of those times. We have arranged to replace our tried and true 6 passenger fishing platform the Michael C with a brand new custom built inspected landing craft.  For those that loved the Michael C, that doesn’t mean she’s getting put on the shelf – it just means we had to face the facts with the soon to come cost of a repower, and it boiled down to the hard truth that replacement was a smarter choice. This boat – a high tunnel, high speed, USCG inspected passenger transporting aluminum catamaran has been designed through collaboration with…

Becoming A Yoga Teacher

Sweat puddled onto our mats, working out the soreness and stiff muscles from the intense, daily asana sessions that continued weeks on end.  My slick palms and soles dug into my rubber mat as breath surged through my body, reminding me of the sound of revving engines before the start of a nascar race.  That…

Res Bay’s Greatest Hits

Our Office Manager Elijah loves taking pictures of Resurrection Bay, and it’s amazing how different the view from our office is from day-to-day, or even hour-to-hour! As he is fond of saying- ‘She isn’t known for her subtlety!’  

Miller’s Landing and the Bearded Beach Boy

It sounds like the title of a Harry Potter novel, but in fact it’s just a poor play on words: Meet J.R, a guy whose real name is like a sealbomb: tossing it out around fish can have shocking results. A local beach fishing addict, J.R keeps his finger on the scaley nuances of area…

FISHING FOR SNOT = HEALTHY SALMON?

We do everything at Miller’s Landing: From commercial marine assistance (need a tow? run out of fuel? can’t dock your boat?), freight transport (building a cabin somewhere?), to supporting the local marine science community: we’ll figure out how to apply our resources to your needs. Jen Questel & Ayla Doubleday, academics at large at the…

Contemplating Ice

You’re doing it anyway. Even from armchairs and flat screen televisions and behind giant cups of coffee: We live in an age where you’re forced to have an opinion on… well… frozen water. Whatever your stance on climate change, these glaciers are beautiful, and they’re receding, and you should make it a point to go see…

Resurrection Bay looks different every day!

Our office manager Elijah Wessel has a habit of photographing Resurrection Bay each day. It’s amazing how different the images are from day to day! Each of the photos was taken from the same spot over the course of the last two years!
