This full-day tour has it all; iceberg-filled fjords, stunning scenery, magnificent alpine and tidewater glaciers, towering waterfalls and world-class wildlife. It is also our most popular single-day sea kayaking trip. You meet us at the Liquid Adventures office at 7:15 the morning of your trip and the water taxi will pick us up right out in front of our shop. The scenic ride to Kenai Fjords National Park is about 2 hours on a very capable, comfortable, heated vessel. We will be searching for Humpback and Orca whales, Dalls porpoise, Stellar sea lions and other marine mammals along the way. Your kayak guide will also share their knowledge about all the critters and area history if you like. The boat captain will drop us off in Aialik Bay where we will spend fifteen or twenty minutes talking about paddling technique and safety. The rest of the day will be spent exploring and paddling up to a very active tidewater glacier. Curious harbor seals may poke their heads through the floating ice chunks to watch you paddle by, and often black bears walk the shore. A delicious lunch will be served on a beach next to the glacier with a spectacular view. What a perfect way to experience Alaska…from the seat of a kayak.

This awesome adventure runs daily and just may be the highlight of your Alaska vacation. You can expect to be back in Seward between 5:30- 6PM.
