We had an evening paddle booked near Seward. Ended up with two other couples, one of whom had zero kayaking experience or energy to learn. So the paddle was short and disappointing. Staff was accommodating and boats are fine. I would not book this trip again but do recommend Sunny Cove as an outfit.

We did the Grand Day tour to Holgate Glacier. It was fabulous. Everyone we worked with was wonderful and helpful. In fact we wanted to do this trip so much that we had to rearrange our whole vacation to make it fit in and the staff at Sunny Cove worked to help make that happen. Truly appreciated, thank you Sunny... More

We combined the Wildlife Kenai Fjord Tour with a couple of hours of Kayaking around Fox Island. They were 2 person sit-in Kayaks with rudders. Easy paddling, many waterfalls up close. Got to see sea otters and river otters. Not much exercise, just right before lunch. Lunch was all you could eat Salmon and Prime Rib, very nice. I think... More

Cat and Collin are delights! We took the 3 hour tour at noon today and had a good time. Both guides were extremely nice and knowledgable. So beautiful!!! We saw bald eagles, their nests, and dolphins. We hiked to a salmon spawning creek and just enjoyed every minute. Would definitely want to kayak with them again.

My husband and I did the hike/kayak combo starting from Tonsina point. We had a great time! We were both relieved when they gave us water resistant pants and boots to wear. Our guide, Connor, went over the basics to kayaking, as we were new. He explained everything well, and answered all our questions throughout the trip. He knew so... More

We took the 3 hour tours and enjoyed 'on the ground connection with the nature'. Tess was super friendly and snakes us through areas of Resurrection Bay with ease. This trip allowed us to watch jumping salmon, tins of bald eagles, some waterfalls and various on shore sights. For those with time, you can see even more with the 6... More

We had Conner as our guide and he is a true talent that is helpful, personable and so filled with life and made the great experience that much better. I would highly recommend this trip for anyone looking for an adventure. We were very... More

We had an opportunity to kayak with Kat and Colin while in Seward. They were very kind and welcoming as we headed out at 8 AM for a quick trip to Lowell Point. Both guides were very knowledgeable about local wildlife, landforms, attractions, and general information. We loved the chance to see spawning fish and our brief hike into the... More

There were 7 of us from age 10 to 65+. Tyler and Collin were wonderful guides ... who taught us well and lead us to beautiful areas and wildlife at a nice pace for us beginners. We appreciated all the gear they had to keep us dry too.
