Kayaker’s Cove Overnight Trip


Best place to see wildlife for kayakers & three stunning alpine glaciers to Thumb Cove where sea lions feed on salmon and more!

Wild Alaskan overnight kayak trip

Hop aboard:

  • The Michael A. water taxi, the Cadillac of the seas, here at Lowell Point and we cruise through beautiful Resurrection Bay to the quiet waters of Kayaker’s Cove and the Kayaker’s Cove Hostel. This is a wonderfully beautiful and serene cove, popular for kayakers.

There is a community kitchen:

  • Your kayak guide/chef prepares delicious meals for you after all that exercise. You paddle one day around Fox Island, exploring sea caves, ghost forests, beautiful towering mountains and cliffs, and observe puffins, sea otters, sea lions, eagles, and hopefully whales, too! You spend the night at Kayaker’s Cove, enjoying the scenery and time with your new kayaking friends.

Kayaker’s Cove Hostel:

  • Camping-style: You camp on sleeping pads in sleeping bags in an open area up in the loft. There is one private cabin there that we can sometimes rent, that sleeps up to four (add $40 for the cabin per night). In the morning, you enjoy breakfast and then paddle from Kayaker’s Cove to beautiful Humpy Cove, watching for wildlife as you go.

Your paddle:

  • Ends in the calm waters of Thumb Cove, where you see three alpine glaciers high overhead and can experience world-class blueberry picking (in season). There is a salmon stream there as well, which usually has several resident eagles lurking for salmon! You stop along the way for a relaxing lunch break. Thumb Cove is breathtakingly beautiful, and it’s usually easy to observe wildlife there: sea lions feeding on salmon and bald eagles flying overhead… What fun! Includes lodging, water taxi, meals, kayak, and guide.

Sites that were booked of course qualify for the 50% refund, sites that were not unfortunately do not.
    • In some situations a raincheck worth 75% of your reservation may be issued at the discretion of Miller’s Landing management instead of the applicable cancellation charge. If this option appeals to you please suggest this at the time of cancellation. Rainchecks are good for one year and may be used for activities, camping or lodging owned by Miller’s Landing or towards the cost of hats, tee shirts, gifts, etc. sold in the Miller’s Landing store or items sold online. For items purchased online the customer is expected to pay for the cost of postage. Rainchecks may NOT be transferred to another person.
    • A 100% refund will be issued for any activity that was cancelled due to weather by Miller’s Landing. Miller’s Landing reserves the right to determine weather cancellations. Rain does not constitute cancellations.

    Please note:  Miller’s Landing encourages only guaranteed prepaid reservations. Unlike many other states, Alaska has  a very short tourist season which can make it  difficult for us to rebook when we have cancellations without ample notice.  

    If you are booking a charter and lodging and your charter , water taxi or kayaking is cancelled due to weather you are still responsible for the lodging or camping reservations and the normal cancellation policy applies. All of our activities are possible during rain, so rain does not constitute a cancellation.  Miller’s Landing is not responsible for vehicle break downs, personal emergencies, flight delays,  health issues or other unforeseen hardships.  We will try very hard to work with you but the cancellation policy will need to be applied  if we cannot issue a raincheck or find an alternative solution that appeals to both parties.

    Please understand that Miller’s Landing also incurs a hefty financial merchant fee from our bank  for the cost of charging your credit card and again for the cost of refunding it, and there is also a cost involved for the time involved in processing and refunding your reservation in employee costs. Our goal when taking your reservation is to have a solid, guaranteed prepaid reservation. We strongly discourage the practice of making reservations without having an airline ticket or making tentative reservations.  Thank you for your understanding.
