Planning your Kenai Fjords Kayaking Experience

We specialize in transporting kayakers to the tranquility and majestic beauty of the Kenai Fjords. Kenai Fjords National Park is an adventurer's playground lined with glaciers and teeming with wildlife. Thousand of visitors come to the fjords every year to experience the beauty of the park, accessible only by boat or kayak. The steep rugged cliffs drop straight into the ocean, leaving little opportunity for foot travel and making the ocean kayak the preferred mode of travel in the area for adventure travelers. The majority of visitors tour the fjords aboard large passenger vessels, while others opt for more in-depth tours by small boat or kayak. Kayaks allow you to absorb your surroundings in serene silence.

Kayak Guide, Rental & Tour Services

We work with several companies that offer guided kayak rentals and fully outfitted guided kayak tours. Tours range from day expeditions, hitting the highlights of the park, to several days, where vacationers can fully experience the calm that the fjords bestow upon those who visit. All three of the following companies offer quality tours that can be customized to your needs:
