Find out where the future of Sunny Cove Sea Kayaking is headed!
When John Page first started Sunny Cove Sea Kayaking (SCSK), he named his company after Sunny Cove on Fox Island where he would run trips and spend his summers living. Many moons have passed since John lived and ran trips from Sunny Cove. John currently lives and runs his operation just south of Seward on Lowell Point. As SCSK has continued to change and grow over the years, we have started a discussion on if it is time to change the SCSK name brand to reflect the direction the company has taken over the past decade. And so it is with great excitement that after many hours of brainstorming and deliberation, we will be officially changing the name of SCSK starting summer 2016.
What's the new name you ask? We wanted the new brand to reflect the dynamic nature of everything we offer. And so without further adieu, we are thrilled to announce that Sunny Cove Sea Kayaking will now be called...
Liquid refers to the nature of our trips on the water. We will still focus on kayaking so it was important to keep that in the name. We threw adventure in there because apparently that's the thing to do in Seward. And the 60 degree clearly refers to Seward's average summer temperature. We wanted a name to distinguish ourselves from all the other companies in town and felt this one did the trick. To make it easier to pronounce, we will use the LKASDF acronym to refer to ourselves.
We couldn't be happier to announce this monumental change. We are counting on you to spread the word to help the community learn our new brand. To make the transition as easy as possible, the new name will go into affect in the middle of the 2016 summer season.
While we are sad to say goodbye to Sunny Cove Sea Kayaking, we look forward to introducing everybody to Liquid Kayak Adventure Sixty Degree Fahrenheit! Thanks for your support and happy April 1st! :-)
Sunny Cove Comes Under New Ownership*
John Page came to Alaska a young man over 30 years ago and has made his impact felt in Seward since 1996 as the owner of Sunny Cove Sea Kayaking. He and his wife Kat have been a staple in this community over the years as they have built this small company from the ground up to the successful operation it is today. So it is bittersweet emotion that we announce that John and Kat Page have officially sold Sunny Cove to focus on the next chapter of their lives. From John himself, "When I broke my femur last year rollerblading, it was a wake up call. I remember laying in that ditch thinking a bear could come around the corner and I would be easy prey. As Kat and I enter the last few years of our lives, we felt it was time to turn the reigns over to some new energy and spend our summers living out our dream visiting a Bed and Breakfast in all 50 states. Alaska will always be home and please know Sunny Cove will be in good hands."
We are excited for John and Kat to embark on their next adventure together and even more excited to announce the new owner of Sunny Cove. You may recognize his name from Hollywood as the star of the Mummy movies...none other than Brendan Fraser! Brendan first visited Sunny Cove two years ago and has maintained a solid friendship with one of our guides. After falling in love with The Last Frontier, Brendan was looking for an opportunity to spend part of the year up here and when he found out John and Kat were selling, he jumped at the idea of being part of our family. We are excited to bring him on board and he has big ideas that we will be sharing over the next few weeks. One awesome note for Seward is that he is currently in talks to possibly shoot the next Mummy sequel right here in our back yard. If you book a trip with us this summer, there's a chance you could be an extra in the movie!
We will miss John and Kat greatly, but are excited for this new chapter in Sunny Cove's life. See you all on the water!
