We stayed in a wonderful eco-cabin on this little hideaway of an island; the only way to get there is by boat on Kenai Fijord Tours. SO WORTH IT! Food was great and, the friendly staff brought fresh french pressed coffee to our rooms. So romantic and special.

Good food. Added the crab - it was worthwhile. Pretty setting with nice little lake. Saw jelly fish on the shore. Nice gift shop located inside the lodge. Lots of outside tables were nice as it was a beautiful day.

We stopped here for lunch during a Resurrection Bay Tour. The island was beautiful and the views spectacular! I wish I would have had time to rent a kayak.

If you are looking to get away this is the place. This is what Alaska is all about. A small cabin and nature and peace and quiet. EXCELLENT food and service. Kayaking if you wish or hiking down the "beach" or about the island. Or you may schedule a boat to take you around the Glaciers, I do not know... More

We took a cruise with the Kenai Fjords Tours which took us to Fox Island as part of a family adventure trip. As part of the trip, we stayed overnight in the cabins on Fox Island, participated in a 3 hour kayak trip, and took a lunch cruise to see sealife and glaciers the next day. The cabins were clean...

We booked a dinner cruise with Kenai Fjord Tours that included an all you can eat prime rib and salmon buffet. It probably took about an hour to get there from Seward Harbor. The boat ride and tour was great. We were blessed with sunny blue skies so it was sooo beautiful being out in Ressurection Bay. The tour gives... More

Guide on the boat was very friendly and knowledgeable. The trop out was beautiful, but the highlight was seeing humpbacks bubble feeding. Phenomenal experience. We also saw a couple of fin whales. Highly recommend the trip. The only downside and the only reason I held back the 5th is that the food (we had lunch) at Fox Island is dreadful.

This scenery is magnificent. The water crystal clear with the green color. There are a brunch of activities for you to tryout. Nice dinner and the staffs are friendly. Wild animals is a bit faraway to see them. Overall the best place to visit.

I felt that I found "Heaven on Earth". I loved sitting in the lodge and just looking at the views. The staff was so attentive and would ask if there was anything I wanted. Saw whales and skipped stones. Perfect.

If you are visiting Kenai Fjords National Park, definitely take one of the day cruises out of Seward to visit the various glaciers - we did the longest tour to Northwestern Glacier, which took about 8 hours in total. We saw orcas, a humpback whale breaching, sea lions, sea stars, remote waterfalls, calving glaciers, and incredible scenery. You can also... More
