Kayak in the heart of Kenai Fjords National Park!

Our Ultimate Overnight Kenai Fjords Kayaking trip features full days in the park, evenings spent around a fire or relaxing in your tent enjoying the rich views. Our overnights are unique, specially designed for every clientele group, and facilitated by our very own fleet of marine assets. 

Where We Paddle

Explore the Holgate Glacier, Aialik Glacier, and Pederson Lagoon area where we see the magnificent calving events, icebergs, pupping harbor seals, black bears and more. Our overnight trips can be led light and fast, allowing for different camping locations throughout a multi-day experience, or via a base camp. We routinely visit and camp at a variety of locations throughout Aialik Bay, covering as much ground as the group desires during each expedition.

About our Guides

Our team of guides will prepare your meals and work to customize your trip to maximize your experience. Enjoy exploring, taking photos, hiking, or paddling all while following the rules and ethics established by the National Park. This area prescribes to Leave No Trace wilderness ethics, and we make every effort to do exactly that.  Kayak guides are trained in assisted rescue techniques, the areas of natural history, first aid / CPR, and emergency response tactics. Miller’s Landing owns its own fleet of water taxi vessels – as a result in the unlikely case of an emergency we are uniquely positioned to establish prompt and unplanned egress from even the remoteness of the fjords.
