This Bear Glacier sea kayak/Stand Up Paddling Board tour offers flexible departure and return times. You can choose a time you want to depart Seward and the time you would like to return to Seward. Times are available between 8:00am and 7:00pm.  We recommend at least a 5-hour stay. If your schedule does not allow for that much time we can make a shorter trip work.

Departing from the Seward Airport, this tour includes a helicopter flightseeing tour to Bear Glacier. Depending on the time you arrive and depart lunch and/or snacks and hot drinks are also included.

Bear Glacier is a remote sea kayaking paradise and offers the most photogenic, and unique Alaska sea kayaking experience available in the Seward, Alaska area. Come paddle in the maze of giant icebergs before they all melt away. Icebergs at Bear Glacier can be the size of houses and some can be over 3-4 stories high. Bear Glacier is the only location close to Seward, Alaska that you can experience sea kayaking with icebergs.

Take a moment to look at our Bear Glacier Photo Album and just imagine how amazing it would be seeing this awesome place in person.

Bear Glacier Lagoon is only accessible by water taxi or helicopter and located about 15 roadless miles south of Seward on the west side of Resurrection Bay.
