Sea Kayaking

The fjords are calm yet rugged, intricate, and full of wildlife and soaring vistas. It's hard to imagine a better place for a sea-kayaking expedition. They also are extremely remote and very rainy, so a trip there is a poor choice for your first outing. Sunny Cove Sea Kayaking offers a kayaking day trip to Aialik Bay. They take guests out on a small charter boat for a wildlife tour, then you launch and paddle in front of the glacier while the boat stands by. The price for the day trip is $399 -- expensive, but it is the best of the best. To get more of a feel for the place, spend a couple of days. Sunny Cove's overnight glacier trip costs $699; a 3-day, 2-night journey in Northwestern Fjord is $1,249. Experienced cold-water paddlers can rent kayaks and explore Aialik Bay on their own, using the Park Service cabins for shelter. Miller's Landing rents kayaks and offers water taxi drop-offs.
