Touch, See, and Experience the
Real Kachemak Bay
Seaman's Ecotour Adventures would like to work with you make the most of your trip to Kachemak Bay. Most trips are typically day trips, up to seven hours, starting in the morning and ending in late afternoon or early evening (depending on departure time). Full-day trips (up to 7 hours) are $550 for the first two people, and $50 for each additional up to 6 (the 5th and 6th passengers under 12 year old are free). For half day trips (up to 4 hours), prices will be reduced by $150. Trips can be extended for an additional fee.
Full-day trips may focus on on-water tours or be combined with short hiking trips.
These tours are a logical combination with marine wildlife/sightseeing trips. Combination trips may cover less area and focus on a few regions of the bay. These trips are typically combined with other wildlife and sightseeing trips. Normal full and half-day fares apply.
Explorations of the rocky intertidal communities will necessarily be timed around low tides (lower than -3 feet). In 2017, the best tidepooling days are: April 7-10, May 25-29; June 23-27; July 22-25; and August 21-22. Tidepooling trips are combined with wildlife tours to make for a full day. Normal full and half-day fares apply.
There are many options available for guided hikes in Kachemak Bay State Park. Hikes in the park are typically full-day trips. There are many exciting trips available, whether you want to hike to a glacier or glacier lake, climb a mountain top, or just explore the coastal forest. Please contact us to learn more about options available and plan for your trip.
Most Evenings are often a relatively quite and peaceful time of the day, and good time to see the bay and it's beautiful vista and diverse wildlife. Consider an evening cruise as a half-day trip, leaving around 4 or 5 pm and returning between 9 and 10 pm. We have propane BBQ grill if you would like to cook a favorite dish. Bring your own food, and we will provide the boat, good cheer, and stories and knowledge of the bay.
