The Aialik Glacier is the largest actively calving tidewater glacier in Kenai Fjords National Park. The exceptional Aialik Glacier Full-Day Tour combines a 2+ hour charter boat ride with approximately 3+ hours of kayaking, providing a more intimate and up close experience of exploring the area around this impressive active glacier.

During your boat tour you will have opportunity to see humpback whales, harbor seals, sea otters, sea lions, mountain goats, eagles, puffins and more!

Once aboard your kayak, you will be able to spend some more time exploring the region around Aialik Glacier, and watch as it calves with a thundering crescendo, creating impressive waves that ripple through the bay.

This tour is capped at a max of 6 guests which makes for a far more personal and high-quality experience.

The Aialik Glacier was chosen as the destination for this kayak adventure because it is the largest and most impressive tidewater glacier in the park, and also located within close enough proximity to Seward to make day trips possible. While the Holgate Glacier is somewhat closer to Seward, it is a much smaller sized glacier, and it doesn’t offer guests as enjoyable or memorable of an experience as the trip to Aialik bay does.

For over 37 years of offering tours in the area, the Aialik tour has consistently received the best feedback and highest praise of any of the glacier tours available throughout the region.

Terms & Policies

Trips run rain or shine! This is a coastal rainforest and thus there is a lot of rainy days. Weather cancellations are rare and made only when conditions are considered unsafe for paddling. Please remember that these are outdoor activities, and Mother Nature is always the one in charge.

Trips may be delayed or cancelled due to rough seas or strong winds. It is recommend that you leave extra days both before and after your scheduled trip in case the weather does not cooperate.

If your trip has a delayed start time or an early pick-up time due to weather, but the trip still runs on the dates planned, there will be no refund or pro-rated cost. Trips will not be cancelled solely on account of rain, so please be prepared for that.

For all tours without a water taxi (Resurrection Bay Half Day Tours and Caines Head Day Trips), guests will receive a full refund for cancellations made more than 1 week prior to your trip date. Within 1 week, your trip fees are nonrefundable.

If you decide to cancel your trip with us, please consider transferring your payment to a gift card. That way you can join us in the future, whether it’s this summer or a future season, providing an easy way to postpone your vacation plans while continuing to support our small, locally-owned business.

Travel insurance is strongly suggested for all guests, to ensure protection against cancellation penalties and many other unforeseeable circumstances, such as an emergency medical evacuation. The weather in Alaska can sometimes delay trips for a couple of days, and it’s worth being financially covered for any changes to your itinerary.

*Full refunds include: trip fees, add ons, and taxes & fees, minus $10 per person booking fees for all half & full day trips & $25 per person booking fees for multi-day trips*
