Miller’s Landing provides chartered water taxi transport to the Kenai Fjords National Park including the Aialik Bay area, the Holgate Arm National Park Cabin, the Aialik National Park Cabin, and the Northwestern Arm area of the Kenai Fjords National Park. The water taxi is done with our brand new custom built 32 foot landing craft (taking 14 passengers plus crew). The drop down bow makes it ideal for loading and unloading passengers, gear, and kayaks easily. The cruise to the Kenai Fjords National Park is the highlight of the Seward area. On the trip there, you will often see sea lions, puffins, eagles, whales, mountain goats, and bears. Both of these cabins are situated near remarkable calving glaciers and berry patches, while the waters surrounding them have salmon (in season) and abundant marine wildlife. Miller’s Landing also has kayak rentals and offers guided kayaking trips (and kayak lessons too) for those wishing to experience this pristine wilderness area, rich with sea life, whales, and birds.

In some situations a raincheck worth 75% of your reservation may be issued at the discretion of Miller’s Landing management instead of the applicable cancellation charge. If this option appeals to you please suggest this at the time of cancellation. Rainchecks are good for one year and may be used for activities, camping or lodging owned by Miller’s Landing or towards the cost of hats, tee shirts, gifts, etc. sold in the Miller’s Landing store or items sold online. For items purchased online the customer is expected to pay for the cost of postage. Rainchecks may NOT be transferred to another person.
A 100% refund will be issued for any activity that was cancelled due to weather by Miller’s Landing. Miller’s Landing reserves the right to determine weather cancellations. Rain does not constitute cancellations.
Please note: Miller’s Landing encourages only guaranteed prepaid reservations. Unlike many other states, Alaska has a very short tourist season which can make it difficult for us to rebook when we have cancellations without ample notice.
If you are booking a charter and lodging and your charter , water taxi or kayaking is cancelled due to weather you are still responsible for the lodging or camping reservations and the normal cancellation policy applies. All of our activities are possible during rain, so rain does not constitute a cancellation. Miller’s Landing is not responsible for vehicle break downs, personal emergencies, flight delays, health issues or other unforeseen hardships. We will try very hard to work with you but the cancellation policy will need to be applied if we cannot issue a raincheck or find an alternative solution that appeals to both parties.
Please understand that Miller’s Landing also incurs a hefty financial merchant fee from our bank for the cost of charging your credit card and again for the cost of refunding it, and there is also a cost involved for the time involved in processing and refunding your reservation in employee costs. Our goal when taking your reservation is to have a solid, guaranteed prepaid reservation. We strongly discourage the practice of making reservations without having an airline ticket or making tentative reservations. Thank you for your understanding.
