We spent seven weeks driving from Michigan to Alaska and back...we saw and did a lot of amazing things and it's hard to choose what we liked best. But, all of us really, really enjoyed our overnight kayaking trip! I was traveling with my friend and her 11 year old daughter. Neither had much kayaking experience and I wasn't sure... More

We did the half-day kayaking trip with Kayak Adventures Worldwide. Our guide Angie was great all through. We had a double kayak and Angie gave us a good orientation. We kayaked for around an hour against the current and pulled over at one of the beaches in Resurrection Bay (arms got pretty sore by the end but good fun). Here... More

My husband and I took the day trip to Aialik Glacier. We had a great time whale watching on the way out and back. Viewed Bald Eagles in their natural habitat. Watched a huge sea-lion push smaller sea-lions around. But the best part of the trip was hearing and watching part of the Glacier fall ( calving) into the sea... More

I loved the kayak excursion to Aialik glacier. The young girl guides were well trained, professional, and awesome. I very much enjoyed their company. I traveled alone to Alaska as a 38 year female and it's the best trip of my life. Everyone was amazing, including everyone at Kayak adventures worldwide. I very much recommend this tour. We saw many... More

Loved our half day trip. The bay is a wonder and it was great to see it close up. The silvers were circling and getting ready to run, they were jumping! Our guide Ericka was knowledgeable and fun.

This was an amazing family trip. My husband and I took our 4 children (ages 7,9,14, and 17) to Alaska to kayak. At the pre trip meeting our guide told us about his first aid/recovery outdoor training which put me at ease because this was our first time kayaking! He also made a list of the wildlife we wanted to... More

My wife and I did a four day mothership trip. This was absolutely brilliant. We had Captain Mike of The Starr and guide Josh who were great people and we had an excellent time sailing and kayaking in the Kenai Fjiords area. Well organised and safe. Excllent food. Fantastic wildlife. Well worth doing.

My trip to Aialik Bay was truly amazing. I traveled as a solo traveler and Kayak Adventures made sure to make me feel like part of the group. On the boat ride to the glacier we saw puffins, sea otters, sea lions, Orcas, and porpoises. Our captain, Brent, was fantastic. At one point, the porpoises rode along with the boat... More
