Fourth of July Midnight Paddle

Quick Details


Celebrate the Fourth of July in Seward, Alaska!

Float in the serene water of Ressurection Bay as you watch the town of Seward launch fireworks from their harbour over the water. Admire the beautiful mountains in the background, different reflections of color in the water, and enjoy the company of other friendly paddlers while you experience one of the most unique firework viewing experiences. 

Join us on one of the longest nights of the year as we paddle into town on July 3 at 10 p.m. and form a flotilla of kayaks to watch the midnight fireworks in one of the best seats in town. No street traffic or tight crowds on this trip! We return to Miller’s Landing between 1 and 2 am. On the Fourth of July. This celebratory Seward kayak tour is four hours in length and is a once-in-a-lifetime excursion.

Essential Details


Clothing and shoes: Be sure to pack comfortable shoes that could get wet, and good layers. It’s never a bad idea to pack extra socks too, and to avoid cotton for longer kayaking trips, especially if it’s raining.

Packing: There is plenty of storage in the boats for spare layers, and other items if packed into small bags around 25 oz. Each guest also gets a dry bag to use during the trip if needed. Reach out if you have questions about gear.

Bringing a Camera? We use sit-in kayaks for this trip, you can have your camera around your neck or in a dry bag. Which can sit in front of you, on the kayak, under bungie cords.


Our sit-inside tandem kayaks are stable and well maintained. They come with a rudder for steering, spray skirts, life vests and paddles. Your guide is also fitted with necessary safety and first aid equipment.

Let your guide know before the trip if you need:

  • Extra rain gear
  • Pogies to protect your hands (paddling mittens)
  • Neoprene Booties
  • A dry bag
  • A butt pad

Before each trip we provide a short orientation on sea kayaking and safety, so everyone is comfortable before we hit the water!


It’s important to wear quick drying, warm, synthetic layers or wool depending on the temperature and weather conditions. We ask that you avoid cotton clothing like jeans. Here is a small list of things to bring on your kayak trip in Resurrection Bay.

  • Water bottle
  • Rain gear
  • Synthetic or wool layers
  • Comfortable shoes that could get wet, we pull and launch your kayaks from shore so you should not be stepping into any water.
  • Depending on the weather consider bringing gloves, beanie, sun hat, extra socks, sunglasses, sunscreen.
