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

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....

This kayak trip was the highlight of my vacation. We were blessed with abundant sunshine, calm waters, and even an otter sighting. I only wish I'd done the full day trip. Highly recommend this excursion.

The Sunny Cove tour we embarked on from Fox Island was not only memorable, but educational and full of amazing views in Resurrection Bay. Our guides were friendly and knowledgeable, providing insight on the marine life in the bay. We were able to hold sea stars and saw a plethora of marine life. The trip to Fox Island from Seward...

We had a great trip with excellent guides -- so interested in sharing their love for Resurrection Bay and Alaska! And very knowledgeable about kayaking and the area. We did the paddle/hike combo to Caines Point -- a very pleasant day despite the gray skies and drizzle!

Hi AD, Thank you for the kind words about our Caines Head Hike & Kayak Combo! We often find the drizzly days to be the best days for kayaking, since the water tends to stay calmer on cloudy days. We're glad you enjoyed yourself and hope we meet again. Stephanie C Millane Operations Manager Sunny Cove Sea Kayaking 907.224.4426 info@sunnycove.com More

We had a great time kayaking with Sunny Cove. First of all, the environment cannot be beat: Resurrection Bay is gorgeous and pristine, a stunning backdrop to any tour. Second of all, our guides were excellent. Danny and Jack were knowledgeable, friendly, and flexible. They knew a lot about both kayaking and the bay itself: animals, history, environment. We spent...
