RESURRECTION BAY KAYAKING: Lowell Point State Recreation Area to Tonsina Point

This is your opportunity to experience the beauty of Seward's Resurrection Bay with its abundant marine life and beautiful mountain glacier vistas on this sea kayaking excursion from Lowell Point. We commonly encounter sea otters, sea birds, harbor seals, bald eagles and leaping salmon. We may stop to take a short walk on the beach and in late summer may land our kayaks along Tonsina Creek to view an active salmon spawning stream. This the perfect trip for those wanting to experience kayaking for the first time or for those short on time.
