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.
