Wildlife Viewing Guide

Wildlife Viewing Guide Seward ALaska


We know for many of you this trip is on the expensive side and that's why we go out of our way to make sure every penny spent results in a lifetime of memories! Our guides will escort you from our offices to our private charter, The Point Retreat to meet Captain Ken before getting underway. Our boat is fast, and we typically arrive at our destination before any of the larger tour boats arrive. That means we often have the entire area to ourselves while kayaking! 

Seward to Holgate Glacier and Kenai Fjords National Park

Our day begins at the Seward Boat Harbor where we board our charter boat for the 55-mile trip around the Cape into Aialik Bay and our launch beach. Once on shore we'll spend about a half hour getting you outfitted and running through basic kayaking instruction. After instruction, we'll have approximately 3 hours (3-5 miles) of kayaking along the rugged shoreline. Along the way, we'll take breaks to immerse ourselves in the sights, sounds and sensations of floating near an actively calving tidewater glacier. 

Following our kayaking tour we'll re-board our private charter vessel to seek out whales, sea lions, seals, puffins, killer whales and more for a few hours as we cruise back to Seward. Having a fast, private charter boat means we have lots of time to search for wildlife after we wrap up kayaking. Our typical return time to Seward is 4:30p - 5:00p but is dependent upon wildlife viewing, weather conditions and boat speed.
