The waters around Kenai Fjords and Resurrection Bay create a kayaking paradise and provide a unique experience for both new and experienced paddlers. Imagine seeing whales, otters, sea lions and other wildlife from the cockpit of a kayak, or feeling the water move under you after a tidewater glacier calves chunks of ice into the sea.
For all their beauty, these waters are not for beginners. The fjords are exposed to the Gulf of Alaska, with only a few protected coves, leading to challenging landings and sea conditions. Fortunately, with a variety of afternoon trips in Resurrection Bay to longer day or multi-day trips in the park, there is something for everyone of any experience level. Fortunately, many guides in the community provide opportunities to explore this area by kayak.
