I booked a 3 hour tour with Sunny Cove the last week in August. Arthur and Kelly were the trip guides. They knew the bay and the area's history and we're quick to spot the all the birds/animals in the vicinity. It was a fantastic way to get a closeup of the gorgeous Resurrection bay scenery and a great upper... More

Had a great morning kayak with Sunny Cove. It was very rainy but the water was calm. Our guide was great and very knowledgable. We didn't see tons of wildlife but it was an affordable, accessible adventure and nice to see some of the bay via kayak.

My wife and I opted for the Fox Island Morning Kayak and cruise combo. This gave us plenty of time on the water around the island and a great meal, not to mention the wildlife cruise that followed. Our guides Kelly M and Kat met us after our ferry ride to the island where we were briefed, trained, and outfitted... More

We had a wonderful time. Our guide was very helpful and informative. We had a safe trip with no mishaps. Didn't even get wet. The glacier was very active while we were there watching.

The picture provided by Sunny Cove is a little deceptive. Kayaking near the glaciers was what I wanted. What we received was a cruise along the shoreline, never to pass a particular spit of land, and a land hike. Our guide was super nice, very informative even though he repeated himself frequently, making you feel like there was an agenda/timeline... More

Hi kjc472, Thank you for taking a moment to share your experience kayaking with Sunny Cove. We're glad to hear you enjoyed your guide and that the equipment worked well. Pogies (neoprene mitts) do come in handy when the weather is chilly and wet. I'm guessing by your description you joined our Resurrection Bay Tour, which does not visit a... More

Beyond the amazing views that you expect to see, our guide made the trip that much more enjoyable. McKenzie was knowledgeable of wildlife and Alaskan history. It was evident that she sincerely enjoys sharing this beautiful place with those that she meets everyday.

Did the 3 hr. trip with Kelly M. She was fantastic, helping us get suited up, demonstrating how to hold the paddle and the different strokes, and telling us about the area and wildlife. I would kayak with Sunny Cove again on one of their other trips.

We had a fantastic 4-day guided rental trip, with Andy G. as our guide. The scenery, glaciers and wildlife were spectacular, even more than expected. We camped in three different spots, visiting Holgate, Pedersen, and Aialik glaciers. Our three teenage boys (12, 14, 17) loved this kayaking portion of our Alaska vacation even more than Denali. The principal reason was... More

The day was awesome, we took a boat ride over to Fox island for a 6 hour kayak trip. On the boat we saw many sea birds and several sea otters, once on Fox island we were outfitted for our kayak trip. Our guide Alicia was fantastic, she was a wealth of knowledge and a fun young women. Once on... More
