Ever imagine a place....
....of turquoise blue waters, tidewater and hanging glaciers, islands with protected coves and rugged cliffs, whales, puffins, and glorious skies? Visit Kenai Fjords National Park and Resurrection Bay and these visions come true. A vast array of natural environments and ecosystems await you, from icefields where calving glaciers turn the waters into a slush cup of iceberg bits, to quiet protected coves where pristine waterfalls cascade into crystal clear waters. The waters teem with marine life; sea otters that casually watch you as they feed on sea urchins and crab..... the adolescent seal that follows curiously as you kayak in silence... pods of orcas that glide through the waters in search of salmon... it is all here waiting for you.
Resurrection Bay and Kenai Fjords National Park are truly a kayakers paradise - the land where the mountains meet the sea. Remote and accessible only by boat, its varied expanse awaits your exploration. The silent ripple of the kayak as it glides along the waters surface makes each natural encounter memorable. This is our home and we are happy to be able to provide you with three great ways to explore this area.

Fox Island Wilderness Retreat, Resurrection Bay

Located at the entrance to Resurrection Bay, 14 ocean miles from Seward, Fox Island is a magical mix of temperate rain forest, sculpted cliffs and protected coves. The waters teem with sea lions, otters & whales while bald eagles, peregrine falcons, puffins and more soar the skies above. Fox Island is the perfect place to learn or refine your paddling skills within a unique island ecosystem. All Fox Island excursions are done in conjunction with Kenai Fjords Tours and begin at the Kenai Fjords Tours dock in the Seward Small Boat Harbor.

Northwestern Fjord, Kenai Fjords National Park

An average 4 hour charter boat ride past countless breathtaking vistas takes us into the heart of the fjords. Visit fjords that were completely covered with glaciers just 75 years ago. Calving glaciers, icebergs, abundant marine life, steep granite walls, quiet lagoons and beautiful valleys await you. Remote Northwestern Fjord and Harris Bay are truly two of the jewels in an already spectacular region of Alaska.

Lowell Point, Seward

Lowell Point on Resurrection Bay is located 2 miles from Seward Center. From its pebbled beaches and glacier vistas we paddle along the shoreline where encounters with sea lions, otters, numerous sea birds, orcas and many leaping salmon are common. Our kayak excursions from this point include Tonsina Creek and Caines Head State Recreation Area. Lowell Point is also the location for our kayak rental department. Sunny Cove's Lowell Point operation is located at the Alaska Saltwater Lodge.

Seward, Alaska lies at the head of Resurrection Bay and is the gateway to Kenai Fjords National Park, and is a spectacular 3 hour drive south of Anchorage. Seward can be reached by air, bus, train and rental car. While visiting this small coastal community be sure to plan at least a day to tour the Alaska SeaLife Center, visit Kenai Fjords National Park Visitors Center, enjoy a hike at nearby Exit Glacier (the only part of Kenai Fjords National Park that is accessible by road), go fishing for salmon or halibut, or any one of the many other worthwhile activites that Seward has to offer.
