We took the 3 hour trip around Resurrection Bay and had a wonderful experience. The guides were really helpful and knew a lot about the region. We got to see some wildlife too including sea otters and eagles! I highly recommend Sunny Cove and will definitely kayak again next time I visit Alaska!

I was incredibly nervous going into this trip, since I had never kayaked before. The website advertised it as 10 miles of kayaking and 5 miles of hiking - and it was. However, the guides go at a pace that is comfortable for you. My arms really weren't tired until the last mile or so at the end. You will... More

We had a great time with Matt he was very helpful and entertaining. We also realized what a workout kayaking is but was a great experience

We took the 3 hour trip around Resurrection Bay and had a great time. Tess & Tyler were fantastic guides and were very knowledgeable with the local natural history. The day was slightly overcast and it turned out to be a very good day paddling as we didn't get too hot and the water was calm. We had taken the... More

We took the 3-hour guided trip. It was a pleasant, mellow way to spend a morning. Excellent guides and high-quality equipment. Very accessible to anyone who has never been in a kayak before. The topography of the bay is such that a long sandbar prevents you from getting past a nearby beach/river within the 3-hour window. So the 3-hour tour... More

I'm a fairly big man but still was able to fit comfortably into the kayak. The guides were great. My 15 year old son had never been kayaking but did great. We saw two whales!! They were way to close for my liking being in a kayak. I hope we are blessed to go on this trip again.

We have kayaked before but this was the best organized trip ever. They actually gave some meaningful instruction yet kept it brief. The guides (Danny and Tyler) were excellent. The short hike was fun and informative. We saw salmon going up river and learned about local plants. Our young adult son had a great time too. Eagles were courting and... More

Three words: Dan the man. I was lucky enough to book a full-day kayaking trip at Fox Island only to find out that everyone but myself had canceled. Because of this, Dan (my guide) and I ended up kayaking the entirety of Fox Island by ourselves. Along with gigantic jellyfish and numerous bald eagles, we also saw sea otters, steller... More

Loved our Sunny Cove Sea Kayak trip from Lowell Point out along the shoreline in Resurrection Bay. Saw Two Sea Otters. Tyler our guide was simply fantastic with detailed knowledge of the area. Way cool.

Our family of 5 had a blast paddling in Resurrection Bay! Ben and Connor were awesome guides who shared a wealth of information about the area. We saw numerous birds (including bald eagles) and saw salmon running in a river where we went ashore to hike. This was a fun way to spend half a day before our cruise set... More

Hello Britt_Paige, We'd like to thank you and your family for joining Sunny Cove, Ben and Connor on one of our Tonsina Point trips. It sounds like you were just in time to view salmon which run in Tonsina creek from mid-July through late-August. We love visiting the creek and seeing nature and the cycle of life in action too....
