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!

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!

Come fishing and kayaking with us for the best of both experiences in a fun-filled day!

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 rockfish, 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!

Essential Details


It best to dress warm and in layers so you can add or take away as needed. Be ready for different weather conditions and avoid cotton.  Below is a list of important items to bring on this tour.

  • A water bottle
  • Medical necessities
  • Warm synthetic/wool layers
  • Hiking boots
  • Rain boots or another type of water-resistant shoe.


We provide breakfast, lunch and snacks throughout the day. All carefully prepared in our own cafe. If you have any dietary restrictions or allergies, let us know.

We have extra splash gear for those who do not have their own rain gear. As well as personal floatation devices, spray skirts that keep your legs nice and dry, light weight paddles, safety gear, stable tandem kayaks, shelters and other gear to keep you safe and comfortable.


Be sure to pack comfortable shoes that could get wet, and good layers. 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.


On this tour the captain and crew will choose which glacier to paddle depending on weather, tides, recent wildlife sightings and seasonal trends.

You have the chance to paddle by Aialik, Holgate, Northwestern, or Anchor and Ogive glacier. All amazing tidewater glaciers. Offering the chance to paddle through ice.


We utilize our own private 36-foot landing craft that can carry up to 24 passengers. With a 5-star safety rating and music, a heated cabin, windows for viewing the landscape or wildlife, and comfortable seating.

The water taxi ride generally takes 1.5 to 2 hours depending on weather, tides, and if we see any wildlife. While the water is usually calm, it can sometimes get bumpy if weather comes in. We do our best to make the ride comfortable, but we can’t control the weather!


The paddle on this tour is very easy, taking place in a protected fjord on calm waters. It lasts 2 to 4 hours depending on the group. You generally go anywhere from 4 to 6 miles exploring the coastline as you approach a massive tidewater glacier.

About Our Guides

Fuel Surcharge:

Please know that fuel is the largest expense we have as charter operators. Our prices reflect the price of fuel at the time of publishing. In previous years we have not added a fuel surcharge, however, due to the volatile and uncertain nature of fuel prices, Millers Landing reserves the right to add a fuel surcharge to the trip rates.

A fuel surcharge will only be applied in the event of soaring fuel prices based on the price of fuel at the time of your charter. Should the price of marine fuel remain under $4.50 per gallon there will be no additional charge.

This will ensure that we are able to take you to the best fishing grounds without regard for the cost of fuel or how far we must travel. By adding a fee schedule we can mitigate that concern, and provide you the ultimate fishing experience.



What to Catch

Pink Salmon

Humpy - Haddo - Gorbusch

These salmon do not reside in fresh water for any extended period, unlike coho, chinook and sockeye salmon. Their average length is 20 to 25 inches and their average weight is 3.5 to 5 pounds. We do not target pink salmon, but we do catch them while fishing for rockfish or silver salmon. They often get released when we are targeting silvers, it is most folks’ preference to keep silvers instead of pink salmon. They are great eating if cooked shortly after catching vs. freezing and eating later on.  You can also catch pink salmon right in front of our main office,  right on the beach, in the late summer.

Silver Salmon


Silvers start their annual return to their freshwater streams in mid-July and August. They average 8-20 lbs and are a lot of fun to catch. They put up a good fight and it’s exciting to watch the fish rip around the boat and leap into the air during the fight! People of all ages are capable of catching Silvers, and kids do very well with these fish. Seward has one of the better Silver Salmon sport fisheries on the Kenai Peninsula, and charter operators actually come from other towns to fish here. Silvers are remarkably tasty, and we take extra care with our salmon, keeping them in coolers with ice and saltwater so they stay firm and fresh no matter what time of day they were caught.  Miller’s Landing has its own ice maker, and we outfit the charters daily with a stock of ice for the catch. When the bite is on, it’s a complete frenzy. Everyone on the boat can fish at the same time!

Non-Pelagic Rockfish

Yellow Eye - Red Snapper

Yellow Eye Rockfish are one of the tastiest fish we catch, and also one of the oldest. They are non-pelagic rockfish, which means they’re one of 32 different species in the same classification caught in Alaska.  Other non-pelagic rockfish we catch are Copper, China, Silver gray, Tiger, et al.  They are generally speaking all of the “colorful” species of rockfish.    Red Snapper and their non-pelagic brethren live to be incredibly old – they grow about an inch per year, don’t start breeding until they’re 7, and the eggs have less than a 1% survival rate.  They live where they are born, and as such are limited in most areas to 1 per person per day.  They are incredibly good-eating, gorgeous fish which initially hit like a truck.  Red Snapper can get up to 32 lbs, and we’ve had them swallow the whole salmon on halibut gear. They are generally caught while fishing for halibut and ling cod.

Pelagic Rockfish

Black Bass - Dusky - Widow - Yellowtail - Blue

Black Bass are both exciting and fun to catch. They are the most prolific of the pelagic Rockfish species and are found near shallow rocky areas.  Fishermen are limited to a set number of pelagic and nonpelagic rockfish per day, and we make an effort to catch both to reach the limit. These fish average about 4 to 5 pounds but range up to 12 pounds. We often fish for them with light/medium-weight tackle. These fish are great fun for young and big kids alike as they hit fast and furious, are located all throughout the water column near rock structure, and can liven up a lull in the bite. They are excellent fried, baked, or blackened.

Pacific Cod

Alaska Cod - Gray Cod - True Cod

While Pacific Cod are not the target species around here, they are great eating and fun to catch. There is never a guarantee of when we catch them. Some days we are “covered up with cod” while halibut fishing and it’s as fast as you get to the bottom. These fish live up to 20 years and grow up to 6 ft in length. Pacific Cod migrate as far as 490 miles in a year from the Gulf of Alaska to the west coast of Norway. Cod is quite healthy like most fish and is great cooked in butter on a hot skillet.
