About Sunny Cove Kayaking

Why Choose Sunny Cove Kayaking? 

2022 marks our 26th anniversary of leading amazing tours at Resurrection Bay, Fox Island and Kenai Fjords National Park! We've been paddling these waters since 1996...the longest of any kayaking company in Seward. Most of our guides have been with us for years and are very experienced when it comes to adventure touring in Resurrection Bay and Kenai Fjords National Park.  

We're Safe, Fun and We Care about Your Guests, Their Experience and Our Community

We are proud of our experienced staff of outdoor professionals. Our guides are organized, detail-oriented people who love to share an enthusiasm for kayaking, nature and Alaska. They are energetic, fun and have a passion to do their jobs to the best of their ability. They genuinely care and love to make real connections with each other and their guests, creating the best experience possible.  

Our guides are chosen because they are enthusiastic outdoor educators and skilled kayaking instructors who enjoy sharing their love of kayaking and the natural world. Our training program lasts more than three weeks and our guides are expected to continue learning throughout the season. To learn more, take a look at our safety and training overview.
