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 36′ twin outboard boat has ample room for your gear and kayaks. 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.

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, but it’s clear with the volatility and uncertainty in the market that this not a practice we can continue.
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 $4.75 per gallon there will be no additional charge.
We are steadfast in our position that we do not want to limit the range of our vessels due to the cost of fuel – our choice of fishing grounds should not be directed by the cost at the pump. By adding a fee schedule we can mitigate that concern, the expense represents a significant impact over the course of a season.

- A $10 cancellation fee is imposed for all reservations canceled.
- Cancellations must be received by email only to [email protected]. The cancellation notice date is the date the email was received at [email protected]. Phone cancellations will not be accepted.
- Cancellations received by email 30 days prior to the first day of the reservation are charged a $10 cancellation fee and you will receive a refund of 90% of the total amount of the reservation.
- Cancellations received by email 15 to 29 days prior to the first day of the reservation are charged a $10 cancellation charge and you will receive a 75% refund of the total amount of the reservation.
- Cancellations received by email 14 days to zero days prior to arrival are charged a $10 cancellation fee and you will receive a 50% refund only if we are able to rebook your camping, cabin, fishing, kayaking, water taxi, shuttle, lunch, or activity. If we are not able to rebook your reservation, then no refunds will be issued and you will also be charged a $10 cancellation fee to your credit card.
- 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, T-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 canceled due to weather by Miller’s Landing. Miller’s Landing reserves the right to determine weather cancellations. Rain does not constitute a cancellation.
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 canceled 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.
