We used Liquid Adventures to take a guided kayak trip at Bear Glacier. They took us from Seward to the glacier by jet boat - an amazing experience in itself. But then kayaking in and among all the icebergs was just indescribable! We saw one...More

This area is a must visit in the Kenai Fjords. SUP with Liquid Adventures is a great tour. Dress in layers, it was warm in Seward but cold in the Bear Glacier area.

We got here via the water taxi (a 50-minute ride). We spent three days on the larger island, as part of the Backcountry Safari sea kayaking tour. The area is GORGEOUS!! Be forewarned that you will likely get rained on. Also be ready for cold...More

This is pretty breath taking. You can see the huge ice chunks on the lake. I am sure it would be amazing to see them up close in a kayak.

Bear Glacier is just a short boat ride from the harbor and worth the trip! It's so beautiful, and you can get up close and personal! A wonderful experience!

We saw this glacier on a 5-hour cruise of Resurrection Bay with Major Marine Tours. The boat cannot get very close to the glacier so we saw it from a distance. It is not a tidewater glacier that "calves" off pieces but is a beautiful...More

Depends of what mode of transportation you prefer. Liquid adventure kayaks are two person. Whereas with a SUP it’s just you. Personally I prefer the kayak cause you are paddling through ice.
