Transport to Aialik Bay in Kenai Fjords National Park

Miller’s Landing provides water transportation for independent wilderness travelers, campers, and kayakers (in our custom built landing craft) to the Kenai Fjords areas in Aialik Bay, and Holgate Arm.

Common destination points are the National Park cabins in the Aialik area. Public-use cabins along the coast are available by reservation from the National Park Service. The cabins are located at Holgate Arm and Aialik Bay.

Kayakers can also camp on beaches. Paddle through the scenic coastal waters and tidewater glaciers, viewing sea otters, stellar sea lion rookeries, seabird colonies, dolphins and whales as Alaska’s majestic untouched wilderness surrounds you. Icebergs from calving glaciers provide the ideal refuge for harbor seals, and the rugged coastline provides habitat for more than 100,000 nesting birds.

Our 38′ twin outboard boat has ample deck room for your gear and kayaks. When we get to your destination, we can help you get your gear from our charter boat to shore with our inflatable raft. You’ll be ready for a great Alaskan adventure of kayaking, wildlife watching, and camping in Aialik Bay, especially after our convenient water transportation from Seward, AK.

    • 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.
