Kenai Fjords Insider Tips

Live like an Alaskan and catch your dinner
If you really want to know what life is all about in Alaska, try your hand at fishing in Resurrection Bay. Woolly jumpers are optional but you will require a certain degree of patience and if you've got what it takes to steal a salmon from an interested Orca then well done you! Most trips depart from Seward and allow you to explore the dramatic coastline as you hunt for the likes of red snapper, halibut and lingcod. Make sure you bring your camera as even if you don't catch supper you'll still be treated to some amazing scenery and plenty of invigorating sea air.
When to go
Kenai Fjord tours operate predominantly during the summer months or June, July and August when the park is more accessible, the days are long, the temperatures are warmest and nature is in full bloom. Winters can get as cold as minus 20 with chances of snow frequent. Be prepared for all conditions, even during the summer. Although the months from June to August often promise bright and clear days, the chance of rain is never far behind. Snow can still be found higher up, so taking care when exploring glacial areas is paramount.
Highlights & Activities

Kenai Fjords Highlights

Birdwatching
The realms of Kenai Fjords tours promise untold opportunities to watch an array of animals in their natural frozen habitat. Puffins, cormorants and marbled murrelets can all be viewed from the water and experiencing the squawking spectacle of a rookery at feeding time is a sight to remember.
Hike to views of Exit Glacier
If you prefer your Alaska adventures to be slightly more physical, a guided hike across Exit Glacier's dense blue ice will take you to some of the best views, as well as enabling you to work up a healthy appetite in time for your evening meal.
Cruise through Resurrection Bay
This is an exceptional opportunity for photographers to capture Alaska's wildlife. From the chance to see the magnificent sight of a whale's tail emerging from the water to rocky outcrops covered in sea birds; a cruise in Resurrection Bay can be exciting as it is relaxing.
