So glad we went! Went out on the 6-10pm trip in a group of 6. Office staff, drivers, and most of all our guide Laban were amazing! The waters were a little rough for the time of day, but Laben was incredibly calm, friendly, and knowledgeable. They have all kinds of extra gear if you forget anything (I would recommend bringing an extra long sleeve shirt in your dry bag for the ride back (as I soaked my sleeves paddling). Will definitely be bringing other family and friends when they come up to Alaska for visits.

This was by far the coolest thing we did while visiting Alaska! Getting to kayak so close to the glaciers, and you could even see them calve. Highly recommend!

Do NOT miss doing this. My son and I were blown away. The beauty. The immensity. And the sightings: humpbacks, Orcas, sea otters, seals, goats, sea lions, puffins, even red-faced cormorants. And the expert guides – Erin and Laban – were knowledgable, helpful, and a delight to be around. Highly recommend and worth every dollar.

Hillary and Richard guided our trip and they provided extra clothing to make sure we were warm enough on the trip to where the kayaks were. On that trip we saw mtn goats, orcas, humpback whales, sea lions, otters. I'm not sure what I liked better - the water taxi or paddling the kayak. Our guides even had snacks for us on the boat.

iahawk2018, Our Aialik Glacier Day trip is the perfect combination of a wildlife boat tour with a kayaking tour near Aialik Glacier. I think it's very common for people to love both parts of the trip! Glad to hear the wildlife came out for your day, and that you enjoyed your time with Hillary and Richard. Thanks for joining us, ~Trent

We had an excellent day with Erin and Laban on the Aialik Glacier Kayaking Tour. We saw all the wildlife that we hoped to, including humpback whales, orcas, puffins, sea otters, seals and sea lions. The water taxi was clean and comfortable. All of the kayaking gear was in good condition and we were thoroughly briefed on how to use everything. Erin made sure we were well informed, comfortable and safe throughout the day. The included lunch was fresh sandwiches from a local coffee shop in Seward. I would happily recommend Kayak Adventures Worldwide based on our experience.

Trent was such a great guide! He is very passionate about outdoor education, we learned a lot about the importance of Alaska's ecosystem. The kayaking was great, small groups so you get a more hands on experience! We walked along the shore into the rainforest, had some hot drinks and great local granola bars. Definitely recommend the half day tour, the morning was a great time to go too!

Kaitlyn! I had such a wonderful time on our tour together. Thanks for taking the time to chat with me about the vast and fragile ecosystems here, and what we can do to help protect these wild spaces. I totally agree, that if you're gonna do the half day, pick the morning. I hope we have the chance to paddle again someday soon, until then, all the best and thanks for the support. ~Trent

I absolutely loved this experience. The guides were knowledgeable and engaging, we saw way more wildlife than I could have imagined, and kayaking up to the glacier was a once in a lifetime experience. Definitely recommend to all.

Had a great time on our trip out with Shauna and Blueberry. Safe and incredibly knowledgeable guides who taught us not only how to operate the sea kayaks, but also shared a wealth of information about the ecosystem. Blueberry’s indigenous relationship with the land was inspiring and insightful, and Shauna led us on a hike into the woods while identifying various plants and old-growth trees in the region.

I highly recommend taking a trip with this company! We had an awesome time. Will definitely come back.

Tyler, This is the 6th review in a row that mentions our guides being 'knowledgable'. They spend over 3+ weeks during guide training studying, learning, and teaching one another about this magical place, and I'm so glad to hear their knowledge came through on your tour. We feel so very lucky to have Blueberry's indigenous knowledge in our community as well. Big thanks for joining us and for the support, ~Trent

We had a fantastic experience kyaking into Aialik glacier with Kayak Adventures Worldwide! Our guide, Erin, helped everyone feel comfortable on the water. She was so friendly , getting to know us and understand what they were hoping for in our experience. And it was a very personl tour with only 6 customers in our group. Truly the highlight of our whole AK trip! We had an adorable seal follow us while we kayaked, and the water taxi stopped numerous times to point out wildlife. Would book with them again in a heartbeat!
