Unwind and relax, steps from the ocean

Accessible only by boat, Kenai Fjords Wilderness Lodge is the only accommodation on remote Fox Island, situated on a narrow peninsula of land south of Seward, in Resurrection Bay. All rooms afford views of the ocean or our fresh-water lagoon.

The Wilderness Lodge’s cozy guest lounge and dining room — featuring expansive views of the spanning island and the ocean bay — is the perfect spot to socialize with the other guests, curl up with a book by the fire or spot marine wildlife with our guest-use only binoculars.

Reconnect in nature

Fox Island is remote, and relies on renewable energy sources to power the facilities, making it the ideal place to unplug and reconnect with nature. It's main source of energy is solar power*. Cabins are not equipped with electrical outlets, televisions, radios or telephones*. The Wilderness Lodge has a charging station if you would like to charge your devices during your stay.

*For times of additional need, we do have propane generators as a back-up, and the staff have access to emergency communications should the need for contact with the mainland arise.

We've partnered with our good friends at Sunny Cove Kayaking to bring you an included kayaking adventure. Make the most of your time and see the island from a rare point of view.

Explore Kenai Fjords

On departure day, choose between two exciting wildlife and glacier cruises by Kenai Fjords Tours, Seward's original tour operator since 1978.

The Northwestern Fjord Tour visits three tidewater glaciers and is home to a plethora of wildlife, before returning to Seward. Departs Fox Island at 9:30 a.m. and ends in Seward at 4:30 p.m.

Should you prefer a shorter tour or if it is not running, the Resurrection Bay Tour is a great alternative that departs at 2 p.m. returning to Seward at 5 p.m.
