In July 2021 we (two twenty-five year old friends) embarked on a 3 day / 2 night kayaking trip to Aialik Bay with Adventure 60 North. We started off with base camp in the magical Abra Cove, offering breathtaking views of the bay, Aialik Glacier, mountains in the distance, and waterfalls throughout the cove. An afternoon kayak to the glacier was a treat, and waking up the next morning to the sun peaking over the cliff surrounding our base camp was special. On day 2 we had a beautiful kayak up to Bear Cove and then across the bay to Quicksand. Immersed in wildlife with humpbacks, orcas, seals, otter, puffin and so much else, we could not have asked for a better day. A quick dip in the water at Bear Cove and a nap in the afternoon sun was also great! We closed out the trip on day 3 with a leisurely morning of coffee and breakfast and a scenic paddle to McMullen Cove. A journey of a lifetime.

Adventure 60 North was fantastic throughout the entire process from booking the trip, to assisting with gear preparations, to teaching proper safety techniques, and ultimately to ensuring a perfect adventure. If you are looking for a kayaking trip in Alaska, go with Adventure 60 North! The town of Seward was also our favorite stop on our multi-leg vacation.

Now to the highlight of our trip, our guide Megan. First, she expertly curated a customized trip based on our preferences that resulted in the unbelievable experience outlined above. Next, despite being two inexperienced campers, not even for a second during the trip did we feel unsafe or unprepared. Proper safety techniques and camping skills were taught in the pre-trip meeting as well as during the adventure, and we had absolute confidence in Megan’s guidance and support. Finally, she was genuinely a joy to hang with and we truly enjoyed every bit of chit chat and banter with her from start to finish. We could not recommend Megan more highly!

I went on three different trips with Adventure 60 with three different guides. Many companies don't allow solo travelers to sign up for trips unless they're joining a bigger group. Adventure 60 was very accommodating and I was able to sign up for three trips without being part of a group: Bear Lake, the Exit Glacier Hike and Tonsina Point Kayaking. Alex was my guide for Bear Lake and it was just the two of us. He was super nice and we saw loons which I had never seen before. It was rainy and cold but very quiet and beautiful. There was hot chocolate afterwards which was a huge plus. I did the Exit Glacier hike with Karla and two other visitors. Karla takes her adorable baby Penny on her hikes which was lovely and she was extremely nice and knew a lot of interesting facts about the glacier. My last trip was with Lauren to Tonsina Point. Lauren is super cool (lives in a bus!) and taught me a lot about the plants and animals we saw. We saw a humpback whale which was amazing. This company is very responsive. They're super on time. They're knowledgable. They're fun. They're friendly. They're affordable. It's a super win. One more thing I liked is each guide talked at some point about how they love their boss and he's great to work for. Love to support that. Highly recommend!

Our family of 7 went on a half day kayaking tour with Adventure 60. Overall, it was a fun experience with good guides, great scenery and a fun time. There are a few things that I would recommend that they change in order to make the experience even better for future guests.

We arrived at 8am and finished at noon. We probably spent less that 2 hours on the water at best. They were very slow moving and seemed like they were just getting organized when we arrived first thing. We stood around for about 15 minutes without much direction. The could have welcomed us quicker and explained what to expect which would have been helpful.

We also spent a lot of time waiting for them to get the gear ready since we were the first tour of the day. It would have been nice if someone went out to the beach launching point before us and got everything ready so that we spent less time standing around and more time kayaking.

Last, the vans they picked us up in and transported us in was absolutely filthy with mold growing in the headliner and other locations. It just wasn’t the best first impression of a business.

The actual time we spent with our guides on the water and at our break spot on the beach was great. It was just really short considering we spent four hours there and less than two of that was in the water.

Our family of 5 (parents and 3 college age daughters) had a great kayaking experience with Hannah. We were kept warm and dry with the kayaking skirts that connect all around the opening that you sit inside (I was worried about being cold and wet but that was not at all a problem). They also provided boots that kept our feet dry when getting in and out of the kayak. The kayaking trip of 4 hours was very easy (we have kayaked before) and Hannah had plenty of great information to make it interesting. We were very lucky to see a pair of eagles--one eating a salmon right on the shoreline. We got amazing photos and videos. We also saw otters. This was a great trip.

Back in March, my wife and I booked the Aialik Bay full-day kayaking trip for our honeymoon in late June. Shortly before the trip, we were informed that the water taxis in town had been overbooked. This was not the fault of Adventure Sixty North. Still, we were pretty frustrated that one of the highlights of our honeymoon was in danger of falling through. Despite us giving her a hard time, Sierra (in the office) was very pleasant and professional, and did what she could to help. Eventually, Rick (the owner) was able to pull some strings and arrange a very special trip for us using a different water taxi. Our guide, Alex, went above and beyond to make this adventure truly memorable and special for us. We spent most of the day on the water, enjoying great views of the glacier and waterfalls, and had lunch on the beach on Shale Island. Adventure Sixty North gets our highest recommendation, and we will be back for an overnight trip in the future!

We did the Aialik Glacier Kayak tour. 2 hours boat ride there, a couple hours kayaking and then a boat ride back. Trip was good. A bit pricey IF you have seen glaciers up close on a cruise or similar because we didn't get too close. Operation could also be streamlined as there was some waiting around time for the crew to load the kayaks on to the boat prior to departure and when returning. Could be better if they load the kayaks before guests arrive to board the boat. Otherwise everyone is standing around waiting. Same with the drop off, maybe a van can drop the guests off at the office while others unload the kayaks. Also for the price, they could provide water bottles for the guests who did not bring water. I think our group was a bit too big with 12 people (6 kayaks) and 2 guides so we were a bit slower and couldn't go as far to the glacier. The guides Alex and Kiana (?) were wonderful. Overall it was a very good experience with potential improvements to make it even bette

We had a small group that was trying to plan a 5-day trip out in Kenai Fjords National Park and Adventure Sixty North helped us plan the best possible trip possible. They were very knowledgable on the area and helped us plan the entire trip, as well as gave us advice on what activities to do and places to stay at. Since we went on an unguided trip their expertise was invaluable and made the trip a success. Additionally, all of the gear we needed was in great working condition and we had no issues with it. Very thankful to Rick and his staff for making our trip a once in a lifetime adventure and highly recommend anyone thinking of visiting the area to go with Adventure Sixty!

Deb was our Exit Glacier Hike guide and we had a fabulous time. The trip was well organized and Deb's passion and curiosity and info about glaciers and the general area was infectious. We could have easily done the hike ourselves, but would have missed out on so much valuable context and information that really made the experience so much richer.

Went on the wildlife boat tour and kayak paddle to the AialikGlacier. Our guide, Alex, was well informed about what we were seeing, conscientious of our safety. And went out of his way to make sure I was doing well the entire trip (although I kayak often, I am 68 and somewhat handicapped).

Being on the water on a beautiful day was the highlight. Our kayaking guides were very nice, however, they seemed to just be there in case of an emergency. The trip was not exactly what I hoped for when spending over $1k. We just kayaked along the shore. We could have rented kayaks and did exactly what we did for a whole lot less. Once we arrived at Bridal Veil we hiked to the waterfall and then the guides were content to just relax on the 'beach'. At one point while kayaking one of the guides saw a sea porpoise and quietly said something to the other guide- one of members overheard. We did a lot of sitting around waiting for them to get the kayaks ready and put away. I would save your money and just rent kayaks.
