About Us

Learn about what drives our passion for exploration, preservation, and stewardship

Welcome to Kayak Adventures Worldwide

We love to share the beauty and magnificence of the Alaskan wilderness with people – and we hope to expose you to, and educate you about, the wonders of the areas in which we paddle. Resurrection Bay and Kenai Fjords National Park are both phenomenal areas of pristine beauty – and they are best explored by kayak! What a fantastic way to view wildlife, glaciers, and the rugged coastline.

Each year we sponsor a Wilderness First Responder class here in Seward, as we believe knowledge of wilderness medicine is incredibly important in the field. All of our guides hold current WFR certifications as well. Every year our guides are trained as Leave-No-Trace trainers, and we strive to provide environmentally friendly trips.

Not only do our guides embrace Leave-No-Trace ethics, but we strive to pass on some knowledge and understanding to our guests as well. Even little details, like packing out our solid human waste and not damaging the beaches with campfires, are important practices to us.  We also are quite concerned with safety, and try to run very conservative trips.

We run the most extensive guide training in the area. All our guides receive at least ACA Level 2 skills assessments and ACA Day Trip Leadership & Kayak Camping assessments. We send a satellite phone out on our multi-day trips into the fjords, and trips in the Bay carry cell phones.  We also spend over a month training our guides each spring… before they can even guide our shortest 4-hour trips.  Maintaining quality on all levels is very important to us.

We hope you’ll come out and play with us. Once you see this area, you’ll understand why not only sharing it but also preserving it has become our passion.  We are not a big company, just an incredibly tight-knit community of passionate outdoor enthusiasts. We try to provide the most flexible and custom booking possible – keeping your interests and desires as top priorities.

Please feel free to call us anytime, or shoot an email our way. We are happy to answer any questions you may have, and would love to let you know more about what we offer. Browse the website and keep in touch; we hope to see you soon!

Our Mission

Our mission is simple: we hope to expose the general public to, and educate them about, the fragile wilderness environment, what we all can do to preserve it, and the sport of kayaking as a means of exploration.

As a Green Star Award Recipient, we also have adopted their policy: to improve environmental quality through wise business decisions. These include conserving energy, reducing or eliminating waste, recycling, and properly disposing of any remaining waste.  We believe that our responsibility to prevent pollution is compatible with successful business objectives. Improving our productivity, efficiency, and materials handling requires regular review of operations. Our organization is actively working to achieve and maintain Green Star Standards and to be a model for other organizations and our community.
