Tour Description:

Sit back and enjoy the ride on this full-day journey…

Head down into Alaska’s famous Coastal Rainforest, the mighty Kenai Peninsula.

Along the drive to Cooper Landing, your local Alaskan guide will take you to see and photograph the best, sometimes hidden scenery along the way. You’ll search for wildlife and learn local Alaskan knowledge on the way.  Your guide will be happy to take photos/videos of your whole group with your cameras enjoying the day. One of our primary goals is to try to avoid crowds.

Upon arriving in Cooper Landing, enjoy a leisurely, 3-hour Alaska float trip down the turquoise waters of the Kenai River.  Your guide will take you through one of Alaska’s most beautiful areas, home to eagles, moose, Dall sheep and bears.  Bask in the views and enjoy the rhythm of the river.

After your float trip, head down to Seward to check out the Seward SeaLife Center and explore the Seward coast. Located in downtown Seward, the Alaska SeaLife Center is Alaska’s premier public aquarium and only permanent marine mammal rehabilitation center. Along the Seward coast, you’ll look for sea otters, see a waterfall and look for salmon (seasonal).

Wind down your adventure with an iconic Alaska Railroad ride back to Anchorage. Optional dinner is available on the train.

Potential daily wildlife sightings include Moose, Arctic Tern, Dall Sheep, Beluga Whales, Bears and Alaskan Salmon. Our guides will do their best to find wildlife for you on your tour. The probability of wildlife sightings is dependent on the time of year and is not guaranteed.
