Environmental & Community Values
Kayak Adventures Worldwide (KAW) believes that purposefully crafted tours provide more than just access to wild places - they have the power to change the world. KAW has contributed over $90,000 to local, Alaska-based non-profits working to address environmental issues in Alaska. Through their program “Kayak. Pick. Give.", guests learn about their non-profit partners and get to choose which one most resonates with them after their trip. This is all part of Kayak Adventures’ commitment, as members of 1% For The Planet, to donate 1% of annual sales to non-profits protecting Alaska’s lands and peoples.
KAW is a small, locally-owned company, with a passion for how tourism can inspire environmental stewardship and benefit the local community. In fact, owners Trent and Hannah started the Seward Farmer’s Market, a place for local growers and craftsmen to showcase their goods, in order to strengthen the region’s food security and bolster climate resilience. KAW also offers the option to purchase carbon offsets, teaches guests Leave No Trace practices, and focuses on place-based education including Native history, glaciology, and ecology on their tours.
Custom Family Trips
Kayak Adventures is dedicated to helping families traveling with children create lasting memories. KAW is the only guiding service that offers a Private Family Tour option for all of their trips. Families traveling with kids ages 6-13 will have their own guide; family trips run at regular times; and there is no extra cost (minimum payment for 4 guests required). Whether your kids want to spend time tidepooling at Tonsina Point, exploring the rainforest, sipping cocoa on the beach, or helping to paddle a double kayak, this is the ultimate family-friendly experience.
What Are Your Adventure Goals?
Kayak Adventures runs half-day, full-day, and multi-day trips in truly small groups. On a Half Day, paddle the coastline of Resurrection Bay, while watching out for eagles, harbor seals, and porpoises. For a Full Day, choose from the Aialik Glacier Day Trip (which combines a wildlife boat tour with kayaking near a glacier), the Fox Island Day Trip (for a more off-the-beaten-path experience), or the Caines Head Day Trip (the most active tour option, combining kayaking and hiking). Multi-Day Trips can be arranged from 2 to 6 days in length, exploring the highlights of Kenai Fjords National Park, paddling the fjords and camping at remote beaches along the way. If you’re not sure which trip to choose, get in touch and KAW will help you select an adventure that best fits your adventure goals.
What to Bring
- For half-day and full-day trips, dress in synthetic materials with plenty of layers, rain gear, hat, & full water bottle. If you need them, KAW will lend you high-quality rain jackets and rain pants at no extra cost.
- For all trips, KAW will provide you with a detailed packing list specific to your type of excursion.
