With fun and knowledgable guides to lead the way, Sunny Cove shows off the beauty of Resurrection Bay through adventurous sea kayaking! The ocean and mountains were picturesque as we circumnavigated Fox Island. We saw amazing natural beauty in the rock faces, glaciers, and remnants of the 1964 earthquake. Making friends with the curious harbor seals and watching an eagle... More

This is a must do activity at Seward. The tour takes us through the resurrection bay and also involves a short hike before we come back to the starting point. The views were wonderful. During our hike we could see lot of salmons trying to swim against the stream. Our guides were very patient and gave lot of information about... More

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.

Hello tramBUF, Thank you for joining us for our Resurrection Bay 3-hour kayak! We commonly do have first timers on our Resurrection Bay 3-hour adventures, and our paddling pace can vary depending on experience levels, physical abilities and sea conditions. We keep the distance covered on this trip relatively short so newer paddlers can more easily enjoy the experience. We're... More

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.

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
