Caines Head Kayak & Hike Combo

Sunny Cove Sea Kayaking offers an opportunity for those looking for an active adventure to combine both hiking and sea kayaking. Your eight-hour day begins two miles south of Seward at the company’s Lowell Point gear shed. After outfitting and kayak instruction, your group will paddle the shoreline of Caines Head State Recreation Area. As you kayak quietly, surrounded by mountains and glacial vistas, all will be on the watch for a wide variety of wildlife, including sea otters, sea lions, porpoise, eagles and sea birds.  

You will land mid-day and enjoy a picnic lunch shore side before beginning to hike to a beautiful hidden waterfall or Fort McGilvray, for an overview of Resurrection Bay. 

This outdoor adventure includes up to 10 miles of kayaking and five miles of hiking with a 650 foot elevation gain. All of Sunny Cove Kayaking’s trips are fully guided and use stable and efficient tandem (two-person) kayaks, allowing both novices and aspiring experts to kayak comfortably.

Getting Here

To get to Lowell Point, travel south on the Seward Highway, this becomes 3rd Avenue once you reach town. When you reach the end of 3rd Avenue, you will be facing the Alaska Sea Life Center. Turn right onto Railway Avenue, which then turns into a dirt road. Continue south along this road until you reach the last road on the right – Beach Road – and take a right. Look for our Sunny Cove facility on the left side of the road.
