[This is not a review of the cabin, we did not stay there.] My family spent a full day on a Kenai Fjords glacier/wildlife viewing cruise with Joe Allen in mid-August. He made arrangements with a great kayaking guide and we kayaked Pederson glacier, passing beautiful blue icebergs and countless harbor seals (see photos). It was truly amazing. Once back... More

I stayed at Joe Allens cabin for 4 days and it was clean, comfortable and really Alaskan. As a lifetime Alaskan i do have expectations about places that claim to offer " The Alaskan Experience" Joe Allens cabin and boat as well as Joe Allen himself filled that expectation to the fullest. Joe's cabin is tastfully decorated with an Alaskan... More

This was the best part of our trip to Alaska. Only a couple of companies get to Pederson glacier and Allen is one of them. This glacier is awesome!!! Joe was great, he showed us the real Alaska, nothing to do with packed holidays!! On our way back he stopped several times to watch whales without worrying about the time.... More

We did not stay at Joe’s cabin, but he did take my family out on his boat for an incredible day of sightseeing and kayaking. I found Joe’s charter boat service online after being unable to book with the usual kayaking companies. Since my family of five were the only passengers, we could set our own itinerary and Joe provided... More

If you want a "canned tour" try someone else. If you want a real Alaskan experience go to Joe Allen. We booked a trip into the Northwestern Fjord of Kenai Fjords National Park for a 5 day sea kayaking & camping trip. Joe and Levi Hogan of Turnagain Kayak (where we were able to rent top of the line fiberglass... More

Joe is the man - end of story. In all seriousness I can not begin to describe Joe and the way he welcomed us into his home of Alaska. We first met on the Alaska TripAdvisor forums (his handle is BoatAK) and he was first just a source for great information. It wasn't until another user recommended a guy named... More

We used Joe for a water taxi to get to a remote cabin in the park. I was assuming it would just be a water "taxi". BOY was I wrong!!! From the moment we got on the boat it was like our own personal cruise ship. Joe has a great boat. Its actually a landing craft which makes loading and... More

We booked a cabin with Joe for two nights from June 26-28th. When we arrived, TJ was waiting for us with a personal tour of the cabin. He even helped us unload some of our luggage, and was very attentive to our needs. The cabin was very well kept, and has all the looks of a cabin out in the... More

We stayed at Joe's cabin for two nights over the July 4th weekend. With Seward being the busiest town in Alaska during that weekend, staying at this place just 10 minutes away from town by car was quite an advantage. The cabin is located in a quite driveway away from the highway traffic and comfortably sleeps 3 adults. The cabin... More

We arrived at the cabin and could not have been happier. Joe has a lot of good books for reviewing life, birds, bear and all around Alaskan life. We loved the art hanging on the walls and used the grill every night. Joe made us feel welcome, and his son TJ checked us in and showed us a picture of... More
