Named for its natural fjords carved by glaciers moving down mountains, Kenai boasts at least 38 glaciers. Just west of Seward, the park’s Exit Glacier is most famous and reachable by Road while the largest, Bear Glacier, must be accessed by boat. The area was designated a National Park in 1980 but experienced huge setbacks and coastline contamination during the Exxon Valdez oil spill in ‘89. Nearly three decades later the park is home to a variety of terrestrial and marine mammals, including black bears, humpback whales, killer whales, seals and moose. 🐋 {📸: @van_der_ra } #thefieldreport #fieldreportaroundtheworld #alaska #kenaifjords

Boat (noun): A hole in the water into which you throw money Let us deal with the maintenance this year and rent out one of our new Stabicraft! A great fishing platform for four with all the necessary equipment to get you out the bay and on the fish! Fast and fun and solid, these boats are simply great! Currently on sale, make your reservations for 2018 and fill up that freezer!!
Bear Glacier Lagoon in Kenai Fjords National Park, is a proglacier lagoon, meaning a lake that forms between a glacier and its moraine (or glacial debris.) In the lagoon you’ll find yourself surrounded by giant icebergs that have calved from the larger glaciers, so exploring by kayak is 👌🏻. {📸: @adventure60north } #thefieldreport #fieldreportaroundtheworld #alaska #bearglacier #kenaifjords #kenaifjordsnationalpark

I'll be kayaking and climbing mountains in Alaska come September... it will be an entirely different adventure than what I'm used to 🤗 I'll be traveling as far north as Denali and as far south as Kenai Fjords. If you have any recommendations, I would love to hear them!

"Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than those you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the wind in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain
Even on overcast days, Northwestern lagoon is breathtaking.

Speaking of night skies...sometimes our winter caretaker has to come to town to resupply. In this case, it seems the beauty followed him as we see the aurora borealis over Mt. Alice and Resurrection Bay. [Photo / J.

Surprise and Holgate Glaciers looked a lot different here, taken 5 years ago. Year after year we see drastic changes in our glaciers, yet they are always amazing to view in person. 🏔 #kenaifjords #majormarinetours #mmt #seward #alaska #glacier

Not much beats a camp fire on the beach!!
Just a random collection of Alaska’s wildlife that I was able to get in front of my lense back in August...
We have just a few spaces left in our previously sold-out (we had a cancellation) summer tour in Alaska.  Photograph grizzlies fishing salmon beneath waterfalls, whales breaching in Kenai Fjords National Park, glaciers calving and more! Click the link in our profile and download the free brochure on Katmailand & the Kenai Peninsula to learn more. These spots will go fast. #soultravelers #gondwana_ecotours #travelstoke

At the forefront of my favorite glacier- the stunning Aialik!!! On a #kayaking expedition offered by #liquidadventures . Here's where we lunched btw, amidst the icebergs. We are about half a mile from the glacier face. From this vantage point you can hear the thunderous calving of the glacier. It’s alive!! #aialik #aialikbay #aialikpeninsula #kenai #kenaifjords #kenaifjordsnationalpark #kenaipeninsula #liquidadventures #glacier #landscapephotography #nikond7000photography #nikond7000 #alaska #thelastfrontier #ilovealaska #ilovekenai kayak #kayakingalaska #kayakingice
Looking like something out of Tolkien, Kenai Fjords National Park is all mists and emerald green, puffins and killer whales. Seward, Alaska, July 2017. #kenaifjords #alaska #mysticallands #beautifulplaces
Holgate arm is one of my favorite places to drop people off. It’s steep pebble beaches often collect ice, great for the evenings libations! And the drama of Holgate glacier calving and roaring is simply stunning. The park service has a cabin behind this beach that comes equipped with propane heat and has a phenomenal view of the glacier. We provide water taxi service to this area via our three custom Landing craft. Tell us when you wanna visit and when you want to leave and we’ll help you make it happen! Kayaks go at no additional charge! This is a place everyone should visit at least once. It’s simply breathtaking.
We’re headed to the Sportsman’s show in Saint Paul this coming weekend! How many of you will be there? Swing on by!!
Bald eagles hanging out on a tidal island. We often see eagles in our area, in fact there are multiple nesting pairs right on Lowell Point!

You can see Humpback Whales playfully jumping around off the shores of Alaska. This picture was taken at Kenai Fjords National Park, near Seward.

Heading to the glacier!!
Let's check in again at Exit Glacier with our caretaker. During these long nights, he gets a pretty remarkable night sky view. Anyone recognize this “bear” of a view? [Photo / J.
