Aialik Bay Multi-Day Exploration

Join us in an exploration of Aialik Bay where Holgate and Aialik Glaciers shed ice into blue-green waters, creating some of the most magnificent scenery in Kenai Fjords National Park.  Aialik Bay's vistas encompass massive hanging glaciers on the mountain sides towering above to tidewater glaciers flowing into the sea below.  This wonderland of mountains and ice gives us an opportunity for a once-in-a-lifetime, up close and personal wilderness experience.  We use stable and efficient tandem (two-person) kayaks allowing both novices and aspiring experts to kayak comfortably.  Available as a three, four or five-day adventure. 

Our longer trips focus on getting acquainted with the nooks and crannies of Aialik Bay. Expect a mix of beach walking, opportunities for photography and paddling with time for wildlife watching and contemplation. Rarely do people get a chance to experience true wilderness. One of the major advantages of having an extra day or two is the increased time to absorb this unique place.

Included in Aialik bay kayak camping Tour:

Our price includes kayaking and exploration opportunities, quality tandem kayaks, kayaking equipment and kayaking instruction. Also included are pogies, tents, dry bags, rubber boots, specialty camping meals and snacks and professional guide/naturalist service. Sunny Cove also has high-quality sleeping bags (including your own pillow and sleeping sheets) and sleeping pads available with advance reservation.
