Miller’s Landing’s “Best of Alaska” Tour is just exactly that

We asked ourselves: What’s the best possible way to spend a day out of Seward Alaska – and this was our creation!

Want to do a little of the best Alaska has to offer but only have one day? Do some people in your group really want to do some fishing, and others really want to sea kayak? Are there elderly people in your party that can’t participate in one experience or the other, but want to stay together or just do some sightseeing?  Do you want to avoid large groups of people? This is the trip for you.

Board our full-day fishing charter and water taxi boat for an all day experience – 4 hours of sport fishing, 4 hours of guided sea kayaking, and 4 hours of sightseeing on the way to and from the Kenai Fjords National Park! Paddle in front of calving tidewater glaciers, catch salmon and rock fish, and view all wildlife the Fjords has to offer on this incredible trip! No experience necessary!

Lunches, fishing equipment, bait, kayaking gear,  guide, etc. are all provided. Dress in layers, bring a fishing license, and don’t forget the camera!

Kenai Fjords National Park Small Group Fishing, Kayaking, and Sightseeing Tour

  • Each trip includes approximately four hours of sightseeing on the water taxi (two-hour ride in and two-hour ride out)
  • Approximately four hours of paddling at the tidewater glaciers in the National Park (Aialik Bay or Northwestern Fjord)
  • Approximately four hours of fishing for the target species in season before returning to the dock
  • Group rates and dates may be available for large parties — please inquire!

Please note: We do not target halibut on these charters – unless otherwise stated as an exception at the time of booking, any halibut caught incidentally during the fishing portion of the tour will have to be released.

Come fishing and kayaking with us for the best of both experiences in a fun-filled day! Enjoy a four-hour paddle in the Kenai Fjords at one of the amazing tidewater glaciers, and four hours of sport fishing on the way home for salmon and rockfish. If you’ve only got one day to spend in Seward and want to do it up, this is the trip for you!

Our custom-built boats make this a possibility, able to land on remote beaches as well as allowing us to store our kayaks above the cabin and open up the deck for fishing!

Group sizes are limited to six kayakers per guide, with a total group size in the park not exceeding 14 total persons (12 clients, 2 guides). Visitors must adhere to Leave No Trace wilderness ethics. The Kenai Fjords is home to three large tidewater glaciers accessible to our kayaks and water taxi boats: Aialik, Holgate, and Northwestern. The area is rife with wildlife of all kinds — it is common to see black bears, harbor seals, whales, sea otter, porpoise, and so much more while in the kayak or on the boat ride in and out.

Fun-Filled Alaska Fishing & Kayaking Adventure

  • No experience necessary: Fishing tutorial, tackle, bait, fish cleaning, and guide, all kayaking equipment, and lunch are provided. Dress in layers!
  • We depart Miller’s Landing at 6 a.m., fully loaded with kayaks and bait! Keep a lookout for whales, porpoise, sea lions, and more as we ride.
  • The Thomas Sea or the Fox Willie ventures two hours to Aialik Bay or Northwestern Fjord arriving around 8 – 8:30 a.m., where the Captain and kayak guide determine the best kayaking destination, dropping you at a beach within a short paddle of Holgate, Aialik, or Northwestern. Here, we can kayak with ice floes and watch actively calving tidewater glaciers.  Kayaking not your thing? Stay aboard and take pictures of the rest of your group and view the action from the deck of our custom built landing craft!
  • By 12 noon we’re back on the boat after working up appetites. Lunch is offered to the group while the captain manages navigating through the often ice-filled fjords toward the fishing grounds.
  • Fish until 4 – 4:30 p.m. Catch fresh, wild Alaskan fish, like Silver Salmon / Coho (in season June 18 – Sept. 5, limit six per person in the bay, three outside the bay), Black Rockfish, Yelloweye, and sometimes Ling Cod (after July 1, limit one per person and over 35″). Rockfish limits are four per person, (only one of which can be a nonpelagic such as a Yelloweye). Around 4 p.m., the captain calls for lines up, and the vessel returns back to the Landing to hang your catch for photos and fillet them!
  • Trips are back at the dock between 5:15 – 6 p.m. depending on weather and fishing.
  • Each trip includes approximately four hours of sightseeing on the water taxi ride in and out. While we can’t guarantee wildlife, we do generally see sea lion, whales, puffins, harbor seals, sea otters, and all manner of sea birds. Our vessels travel nearly the exact same route as a sightseeing tour boat would on their full day experience to the fjords.
  • There are approximately four hours of paddling with glaciers in the National Park.
  • There are approximately four hours of fishing for the target species before returning to the dock.

Fishing licenses are not provided but can be purchased online prior to departure or even days before the trip. While we do hang your catch for photos back home and filet as part of the trip, we do not have a fish freezing and packaging facility on site. There are a few excellent options in town to pack your fish for shipment either via plane or FedEx — just check out our page on processing fish here!


PLEASE NOTE: This trip is only sold by individual seat on Wednesdays.  For other days of the week, the whole boat must be booked.  Please give us a call with any questions!
