Please be aware that the marine weather in Resurrection Bay can be highly variable over the winter! All parties are encouraged to pack emergency food and fuel, and in containers light enough for an individual to carry (don’t overload coolers, action packers, duffels – slips trips and falls are likely during storm surge loading when moving heavy equipment). Good communication and a plan to remain on site for additional time, or cancel the departure of the trip altogether due to a foul long term forecast is expected for every winter water taxi client.
East side of the bay – Thumb Cove, Humpy Cove, Kayaker’s Cove, and Fox Island Spit will only be serviced after guests acknowledge they understand the weather concerns for their booking, which is as follows:
If there is a surge on the beaches due to an offshore storm, it is entirely possible that we will have to delay or cancel pick ups until the surge subsides. In most of these locations, there is limited cellular phone service if any, no line of sight for clear VHF communication from a hand held, and as such a “Spot Beacon”, “Garmin In-Reach”, or other satellite communicator is encouraged. Additionally, these areas are protected in general from the fetch of the bay – it may appear calm in the immediate vicinity, but prove challenging or impossible to actually reach that area due to weather outside of your view from the shoreline.
West side of the bay – Caines Head, Derby Cove, Callisto Cabin, and Tonsina Beach will only be serviced after guests acknowledge they understand the weather concerns for their booking, which is as follows:
If the weather forecast is greater than North 15 Seas 3 we will not be servicing these areas at all. Weather can delay a pick up, or cancel it entirely; cell phones will have generally have service at all of these locations, but you should be be fully prepared to hike out.

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.
