Seward & Kenai Fjords National Park Sailing & Private Yacht Adventures

Most visitors are able to sample the wonders of Kenai Fjords National Park on a 4 - 9 hour day cruise from Seward, Alaska. But in recent years, a few private yacht and sailing companies have emerged, allowing to visitors to deepen their experience in the National Park, turning it from a single-day destination, to an opportunity for multi-day immersion and discovery.

Board a custom yacht charter from Seward, Alaska for 1 to 6 nights. Adventures range from more of a rustic DIY experience, where you help with the meal prep on board, to all-inclusive luxury experiences. In either case, you'll spend several hours marveling at the steep cliffs of the fjords that rise impossibly out of the water, you'll pause near a glacier for lunch, anchored silently listening to the ice creak, and you'll go ashore to areas rarely touched.

Not sure how a multi-day cruise in Kenai Fjords fits into your Alaska vacation? Check out this sample itinerary.
