We had an awesome full-day kaiaking around fox island. Matt was great and told us so many things about the wildlife in that beautyfull area of resurrection bay. Great food on an awesome picnic place as well. Perfectly organized. Thanks a lot Matt! We had an great day out. Carina & Nils

I did the fill day Hike & Kayak trip with a group, and absolutely loved it. Danny and Jack were fabulous guides who took care to ensure that even the novice kayaking among us felt comfortable before pushing off for our kayaking trip. On route to our mid-way point, the guides assisted with wildlife spotting and provided really interesting information... More

A really excellent trip guided by Jack. The three of us, which included our 13 YO daughter, paddled the five miles to Caines Head, took the four mile RT hike up to the old WWII army fort, and back again to the start on a beautiful day. Saw a nesting pair of eagles, even saw one of them catch a... More

Cat's thorough knowledge, calm manner, and expert instruction made for a perfect kayaking trip to Tonsina Point. She spotted porpoise, eagles, and knew which were dog and which pink salmon in the creek. She told us about the geography, geology, jellyfish, and on a walk through the woods, interesting plant facts! Her love of the environment is evident. We hadn't... More

Hi Patricia B, Thank you so much for joining Kat and Sunny Cove on an adventure to Tonsina Point. Later in the summer is a great time for this trip since the salmon are running in Tonsina Creek. We enjoy Kat's enthusiasm and joy of learning too! Also, thanks for pointing out the 8am-11am trip is most appropriate for first-timers.... More

We enjoyed our 6 1/2 kayaking trip from Fox Island with Sunny Cove, despite the unfavorable weather conditions. Loved seeing the puffin and sea lions, as well as lots of bald eagles. Our guide did an excellent job of pointing out the wildlife and sea life. We had a great lunch on the beach and had fun picking wild raspberries... More

I have lived in Seward off and on for 5 years and this was my first trip to Caines Head! I was glad my guide (Danny) had endless patience because this was also only the second time I had kayaked. It was a long day with paddling and hiking but it felt great. The view from the fort was amazing,... More

We were traveling with our daughters, 9 and 13. We went all around Alaska experiencing many great days. This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. We chose the Grand Day Tour: Whale watching, Tidewater Glacier Viewing and Sea Kayaking tour and were not disappointed. Although we must say the boat captain did let us know we were... More

I thought for sure my new husband was trying to find the most crazy things that you could do during our honeymoon in Alaska, After a grueling hike to the top of Flat top mountain, I thought for sure this next adventure was going to leave my arms sore to match my legs from hiking. Turns out these kayaks are... More

Had Tess as our guide and she was great. Knowledgeable about the wildlife and kayaking. Would definitely recommend doing the evening sessions when there are some waves, they make it fun.

Hi Erin1392, We think Tess is great too! We do encourage those with older children, or of a more adventurous spirit join us on our Lowell Point 4pm trip. It's common for the afternoons to have a bit more wind which leads to choppier water. If you're comfortable, the waves sure can be fun! Thanks for joining us for an... More
