Fox Island Day Trip
Our Fox Island Day Trip offers our guests the opportunity to escape the crowds near town and visit the dramatic coastline along the eastern side of Resurrection Bay and Fox Island.
TRIP PRICING: $199 / PERSON + TAX
Trip Timing: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
If you'd like to do something a little different and get away from town, then the Fox Island Day Trip is a fantastic option. We use a water taxi for transport across the bay to a little cove on the eastern shoreline... near the Fox Island Spit. From there, you'll load up the kayaks and head out for a day of exploration! The timing for this trip varies depending on the water taxi's schedule... but it usually runs somewhere around 9am - 5pm.
From the drop off beach you'll head north into Humpy Cove, where you may land and do a short walk to a beautiful waterfall. The scenery on this coastline is spectacular and the wildlife tends to be quite good. Marvel at the mountains jutting straight up from the ocean, and learn about the pillow basalt as you paddle past it. You'll finish the trip on the Fox Island Spit where you can check out the tidepools and ghost forest. This trip is a favorite for our guides!
Kayakers Cove Overnight Getaway: This trip can also be turned into an overnight, with a night's stay at the Kayakers Cove Hostel or their private cabins. Spend two full days exploring the coastline, enjoy a campfire or wood-fired sauna at the end of the day, meet other like-minded people staying at the hostel, and just take the time to get to know Alaska better!
what should I wear?
For these trips, we ask you to wear synthetic layers of clothing - as cotton and jeans get really cold if they get wet. We also ask that you bring a rain coat and rain pants, since this is a coastal rainforest! We have rain gear for rent at our shop, should you need it. Your feet might get wet when launching or landing, so please bring footwear that will keep you warm, that you're comfortable walking in, and that you don't mind potentially getting a bit wet. (water sandals, running shoes, and hiking boots are all fine options) If it seems like a cold day, we rent pogies (neoprene mitts for your hands while kayaking) which will keep your hands much warmer and more comfortable while you're out there. You'll also want to be sure to have your own bottle of water, sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat.
