We Have Great Gear
We always offer clean PFDs, functional nylon spray skirts to keep you dry, splash gear when appropriate, carbon fiber and Fiberglass paddles so you can enjoy your time on the water, and clean well maintained kayaks to carry you safely on any of our adventures.
Our Guides are all experienced in kayaking and in outdoor leadership before joining our team. They often come from all different backgrounds; from being ski instructors, snowmobile guides, backpacking guides, or passionate outdoor enthusiasts. Which we believe helps build a strong diverse team with many skills who are all able to thrive and learn from each other. Everyone is trained for two weeks to refine their skills together and learn all they need to know to safely guide our clients. We instruct and certify our guides as ACA L2 kayakers, practice cold water rescue techniques, spend 6 amazing but gruelling days in the backcountry as a team, and require that all guides have an up-to-date Wilderness First Responder Certification.
We are one of the only companies in town with our own water-taxi vessels, which means we are able to offer trips to unique locations that others may not be able to access. Get dropped off in the mystical Humpy Cove with a guide to explore rock gardens and waterfalls, or join one of our custom overnight adventures in Kenai Fjords. We can take you almost anywhere!
Located on Lowell Point at 13880 Beach Drive, we are right on the waterfront, which means no shuttle or wasted time unloading gear from a trailer. For many of our trips, we launch off the beach right in front of our office. Or our unique landing craft will pick you up right off the beach and take you across the bay, or to the National Park.
We have a diverse variety of trips that take place in all parts of Resurrection Bay and Kenai Fjords. We are one of the only companies with the flexibility of changing day-to-day float plans and kayaking destinations. This way we can optimize each trip based on wildlife, weather conditions and tides. We also do our best to accommodate folks’ adventurous needs which is why we also offer private group packages. This larger variety of trip offerings is greatly due to our flexibility and long-standing operations experience facilitating trips with our own water taxi.
We Offer Kayak Rentals and Lessons
We are one of the only companies in town to offer kayaking rentals to experienced kayakers looking to guide their own adventure through the national park, or have rented a public-use cabin. Our lessons are also a great way to learn kayaking basics and safety and would allow you to rent our gear. They include lunch, coffee, and a pow-wow with your guide to talk about camping, tides and weather, or answer any of your questions before you depart on any future adventures.
