Kayaking | Kenai Peninsula Tourism Marketing Council

Kayaking Resurrection Bay provides a stunning backdrop of scenery and wildlife as you paddle your way in and out of coves tucked along the shoreline, sharing your serenity with sea lions, sea otters, a variety of whales and multitudes of puffin and other assorted avian. The paddling options are limitless – bring your own boat, rent one or hire a guide. Start from shore to enjoy the inner portions of the Bay, take a water taxi to the remote areas or fly-in to Kenai Fjords National Park to have a spectacular experience kayaking/SUP amidst the glaciers. Seward has been named one of the Top 10 kayaking/SUP towns in the United States and after a day of paddling we’re sure you’ll agree.

Kachemak Bay surrounding Homer, Seldovia and Halibut Cove has long been known for the best halibut fishing in the world, but more and more kayakers are finding the allure of the fjords of Kachemak Bay State Park irresistible. Whether you bring your own kayak, rent one, or hire a guide, all of your kayak excursions will begin with a water taxi ride across the bay. Once there you can spend a few hours, a few days, or a few weeks exploring the many coves and fjords that dot the coastline. Your adventure is sure to bring you in contact with numerous sea otters and birdlife and you might even encounter a whale or two, but you will always be simply awed by the scenery.
