  • Address: Fox Island
Fox Island -- not to be confused with the Fox Islands in the Aleutian Island chain -- is a remote island accessible from Seward by about an hour boat ride. Full of rainforests, beautiful beaches, rugged cliffs, secluded coves and access to the Kenai Fjords National Park, it’s a true Alaskan paradise for those who enjoy scenic landscapes and outdoor recreation.

Kayak through the turquoise waters that surround the island watching for Stellar sea lions, whales, otters, Dall’s porpoise and seabirds. One of the top kayaking routes from Fox Island is the Fox Island Spit, which begins on the north side of the island and takes you to your choice of Humpy Cove, Thumb’s Cove or El Dorado Narrows for beautiful scenery and great wildlife spotting opportunities.

Fishing is another popular Fox Island activity, especially from mid-July through August when the waters are abundant with salmon. Sign up for a fishing trip or cast your reel right from the beach.  And for those who enjoy hiking and camping, Sunny Cove allows for overnight camping and features beach, woodland and rainforest trekking trails. Fox Island is also home to remote beachfront cabins which provide a serene and comfortable Alaskan wilderness experience.

For an ambient experience, opt to take a cruise from Seward to Fox Island. The journey takes you over Resurrection Bay, where you can sip beer and wine while taking in sights like Bear Glacier, Kenai Fjords National Park, and wildlife like whales, sea lions, otters and seabirds. When you arrive to Fox Island, get your camera out and take some photos of the scenery before enjoying an all-you-can-eat buffet at a private lodge. Some dishes you may sample include wild Alaska salmon, prime rib, salad and fresh vegetables followed by a decadent dessert. You’ll also have the option to upgrade your meal to include king crab.
