Alaskan Kayak, Hike & Glacier Cruise AdventureS


Imagine yourself experiencing a place of turquoise blue waters teeming with whales and puffins, tidewater and alpine glaciers, protected coves and rugged cliffs under glorious skies. These visions become reality in Kenai Fjords National Park and Resurrection Bay. Sea otters casually watch you as they feed on urchins and mollusks; seals follow you curiously as you kayak in silence; eagles peer down at you while you hike through impossibly green spruce forests, pods of orcas glide by the bow of your charter boat as they search for salmon, humpback whales breaching in glacial's all here waiting for you.


We know you have a lot of options when it comes to experiences in Seward. We also know this might be a bucket list vacation and that traveling to Alaska is expensive. Sunny Cove strives to provide high-value, once-in-a-lifetime experiences and personal, authentic connections.

Located at the entrance to Resurrection Bay just 12 nautical miles from Seward, Fox Island is a magical mix of temperate rain forest, sculpted cliffs overhanging the sea, protected coves of turquoise water and curving, pebbled beaches. The surrounding waters include a unique blend of bay and outer coast marine life including sea lions, harbor seals, sea otters and orcas and humpback whales. Bald eagles, tufted and horned puffins, murres and kittiwakes soar the skies above. Sunny Cove Sea Kayaking is the only company with a base at Fox Island offering these unique adventures. 

Our Resurrection Bay trips begin from Lowell Point, just two miles south of Seward by road. Here we'll experience the beauty of Resurrection Bay, its abundant marine life, temperate rainforests and beautiful mountain glacial vistas. As you paddle the shoreline of Resurrection Bay encounters with sea otters, porpoise, seals, and bald eagles are possible. Explore Tonsina Point with its ghost forest, late season salmon stream and beautiful mountain views from its beach or enjoy a longer day of exploration with a visit to Caines Head State Recreation Area to explore a Fort McGilvary, a subterranean fort built during World War II.

Kenai Fjords National Park is a place where tidewater glaciers shed their ice to create some of the most magnificent scenery in the world. It's vistas encompass many varieties of glaciers from massive hanging glaciers towering above  in the mountains to the tidewater glaciers that flow into the seas below. This spectacular area provides the opportunity to experience this wonderland of mountains and ice up close and personal. Crackling ice, tidewater glaciers and wildlife encounters will bedazzle your senses as you sea kayak amidst seals and whales, watching multitudes of sea birds soaring along the waters surface. This is the place to experience the beauty of an ultimate Alaskan adventure. 

Do you dream of waking up to a hot mug of coffee on a beach overlooking a beautiful tidewater glacier? Does visiting a virtually untouched and untamed location to explore hidden nooks and crannies sound appealing? Our multi-day trips focus on taking the time to get intimately acquianted with Kenai Fjords National Park. On these trips you can expect a mix of beach-walking, opportunities for photography and paddling with time to absorb this unique place. Rarely do people get a chance to experience this level of true wilderness.
