We've Been Exploring Seward and beyond for more than two decades
2019 marks our 24th anniversary of leading amazing tours Resurrection Bay, Fox Island and Kenai Fjords National Park! We've been under the same ownership, since 1996...the longest of any kayaking company in Seward. Most of our guides have been with us for years and are experts when it comes to sea kayaking, Resurrection Bay and Kenai Fjords National Park. Together, they have a combined expertise of 36 years of kayaking in the Seward area!
We're Safe, Fun and we Care about you, your experience and our community
We are proud of our experienced staff of outdoor professionals. Our guides are organized, detail oriented people who love to share an enthusiasm for kayaking, nature and Alaska. They are energetic, fun and have a passion to do their jobs to the best of their ability. They genuinely care and love to make real connections with each other and their guests, creating the best experience possible.
Our guides are chosen because they are enthusiastic outdoor educators and skilled kayaking instructors who enjoy sharing their love of kayaking and the natural world. Our training program lasts more than three weeks and our guides are expected to continue learning throughout the season. To learn more take a look at our safety and training overview.
Our knowledgeable reservation staff is ready to answer any of your questions. They are also experienced outdoor enthusiasts who are very familiar with Alaska. Our goal is to make it easy for you to explore and appreciate this dynamic place.
Several of our staff members are also year-round Sewardites who enjoy investing their time and know-how in the community.

We never up-charge for equipment
All of our tours begin with gearing up, a paddling orientation and a safety talk. We’ll provide you with a personal flotation device (PFD), spray skirt, waterproof boots, pogies (neoprene mitts) and if needed, we also have splash jackets and splash pants to help keep you dry. All of these extras are always included in our advertised prices.
