Kayak Tour Logistics & Information

We cap all of our Adult Tours at just 6 people (ages 14+), to provide the most intimate and meaningful guest experience while minimizing our impact on the places we visit. This is a true small group tour! If you have a larger group, we’re happy to arrange a private tour for your group, at no extra cost. If you’re traveling with kids ages 6-13, learn more about our Private Family Tours.

All of our tours are led by knowledgeable, thoughtful, and, enthusiastic guides. Our guide training lasts over a month each spring, and focuses on kayaking + rescue skills, wilderness medicine, natural history, weather, Alaska Native cultures, climate change, Leave-No-Trace, and local knowledge and experience. Learn more about our incredible crew on our Meet the Team page.

All of our trips include your guide, kayak, paddling & safety equipment (PFD, paddling mitts, spray skirt), transportation from our downtown location, dry bags, hot drinks, and snacks. For full day trips, we also include locally made sandwiches for lunch and your water taxi fees if applicable. We even have high quality rain jackets, rain pants, and rubber boots you can borrow if you need them! On all of our trips, we use double kayaks – for stability, pacing, efficiency, and risk management reasons. The only things you’ll need to plan for are personal clothing (you’ll receive a detailed packing list upon booking), an adventurous spirit and gratuity for your guide.

Our multi-day trips can be run as Fully Outfitted or Guided Rentals, depending on how you’d like to travel. We also work with a local captain to provide Mothership Trips, where you sleep aboard the boat and paddle each day. Our multi-day calendar fills up quickly, so please be in touch in advance if you’d like to plan a multi-day kayaking trip.


Alaska’s weather is known for being unpredictable and extreme, which is what defines its humbling and awe-inspiring characteristics. While this drives a lot of our preparations and operations, we can only do our best; Mother Nature doesn’t always cooperate. We recommend allowing a little bit of flexibility in your vacation, so if there are high winds or rough seas on your scheduled day, you have the wiggle room to move your tour (depending on availability). We also recommend reviewing our Cancellation Policy and considering travel insurance for your Alaska vacation.

We find purpose and joy in sharing our home with visitors. If you have questions about lodging, dining, or other activities, check out our local info. Consider joining us a Seward Adventure 0r Family Package tour,  where we combing a kayaking trip with a private, guided hike with Seward Wilderness Collective, our sister company. We can’t wait to show you around our backyard soon!
