About Us

Welcome to Kayak Adventures Worldwide


When I arrived here in 2012, I was struck by the power of this place. No other place I’d ever been compared to the Kenai Fjords. No other place came even close to the capacity for magic. The potential to reach deep down into people – to move people, beyond their expectations or dreams. It’s the landscapes, the wildlife, the sheer abundance and scale of this place. 

And on top of that, this little kayak shop, with the most authentic, passionate, and generous community, immediately reminded me of family. Together, we have discovered we can do anything. Over the years, we’ve seen tens of thousands of visitors, observed changes in our glaciers and animals, and tackled challenges we could never have imagined. But the same thing has always kept me – really, us – motivated to do what we do.

My purpose in life is to facilitate meaningful experiences for people in the natural world. My partner, Hannah, found this place and community through her parallel passion for protecting the integrity of our planet through fostering a love and respect for it. And now, Kayak Adventures and the community of Seward mean ‘home’ to us. 

We will continue to be impressed by the winter sunrises, excited at the spring’s first whales, and grateful for the support of our staff, neighbors, and guests. We care a lot about our little slice of coastal Alaska, and we invite you to join us as active stewards of our natural world. We recognize that before we can collectively take care of our planet, we must feel connected to it. So we invite you to come, fall in love with Kenai Fjords.

With Gratitude,

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.
