Ultimate Day of Kayaking in Kenai Fjords National Park

Sightsee from our fast-landing passenger vessels while traveling to the pristine Aialik Bay for a full day of paddling in the ice!

Spot whales, puffins, sea lions, porpoises, and more both on and off the water! Aialik and Holgate glaciers are the largest tidewater glaciers in the Kenai Fjords National Park. Ice the size of city blocks can calve from the face of these magnificent natural formations. Our kayaking trips are fully guided and outfitted and require no prior experience. The length of our day trip is greater than any other outfitter in our area, allowing for access to Pedersen Lagoon’s tidal-dependent entry if the tides are right! Explore the hidden treasures of the Kenai Fjords, and really experience the National Park!
