SEWARD ALASKA Glacier Kayaking – Kenai Fjords National Park

SEWARD ALASKA Glacier Kayaking – Kenai Fjords National Park

Seward lies in the Kenai peninsula and should definitely be a stop on your Alaskan Road Trip. Even the drive here from the airport is listed as one of the most beautiful in the country.

Today we venture to Seward – with 2 more people in tow. On our way back from Valdez we swung through Anchorage to pick up my parents while waiting at the coolest Airport Cell Phone Pick up lot we’ve ever seen.

For $40 you can park oceanside with water and electric and even dry camp on a budget with cruise ships out your front window for $20

The main reason we’re here is my number one Alaska bucket list item: kayak to a glacier. We’re heading out on a ferry to a remote island inside the Kenai Fjords National Park where our wilderness guides keep their kayaks. Already, just on the ferry ride we were visited by sea otters, harbor seals, bald eagles, puffins and were surrounded by ice, glaciers AND lush temperate rainforests. Yes, rainforest, in Alaska.

How do we know all this? This is our Wilderness Guide Norris. We booked a full day trip with Kayak Adventures Worldwide and, while we were sharing the ferry with other groups, it was just Norris and the four of us that were going to be off exploring the glacier. You know how sometimes it’s just the luck of the draw? Well, we were quite “lucky” with Norris. He was immediately on board for our shenanigans, so we just handed over the camera and said – ok – you’re in charge of YouTube today 😊

Yes, it cold; it was wet; but it was one of the most incredible places we have ever been. It was time to paddle back to “kayak island” to be picked up by the ferry, and, with some time to kill, we decided to interview a WILDERNESS EXPERT on how to stay “bear aware” in the park.

Wet, tired, hungry and cold we laughed on the way back and we applauded Tim’s parents who hadn’t hardly been with us for 24 hours before we threw them into one of the most challenging days of the trip.

This video is not in any way sponsored by kayak adventure worldwide nor did we receive this trip for free. This was a serendipitous day with a great guide and company. At the end of our trip each participant selects a eco friendly non profit to donate to. Out of all of the guided adventures and tour companies we taken throughout our travels, this by far was the best experience and we hope you give them a look if you are visiting Alaska.

Stay tuned for Thursday where we show the stark difference of what happens when you DON’T get a assigned a great guide as we go Halibut fishing out of Homer with someone who would rather be Moose hunting.

    I can honestly say my impression of this video would be it was done by 10 year olds.
