Unspoiled Fox Island, the Heart of Resurrection Bay

Kenai Fjords Tours is pleased to welcome you to picturesque Fox Island, in the heart of Resurrection Bay. Your exploration of Kenai Fjords National Park is enhanced by a chance to step off the boat, stroll the beach and explore on land. This island is rich in inspiration and character. 

Once you arrive at Fox Island, head in to our cozy Day Lodge for a sumptuous Prime Rib and Salmon buffet, which is included in your tour (add a half-pound of King crab for an additional fee). 

While you dine, a Kenai Fjords National Park ranger will share some of the remarkable stories about this incredible place.

You’ll learn about geology, glaciology, wildlife in Resurrection Bay and the human history of the area—including the winter renowned artist Rockwell Kent spent right here. 

After your meal, stretch your legs on a walk along the flat-rock beach of Halibut Cove. Look for heart-shaped rocks and give stone-skipping a try—these rocks are perfect for it!  Or sit on some driftwood and enjoy the deep silence and peace of this place. 

As the captain calls you back on board, you’ll gaze from the deck fondly at the pristine shores of Fox Island, forever cherishing your memory of your time spent in a small corner of truly unique Alaska.
