It has been many years since I have offered a photo tour into Kenai Fjords National Park. It seems so wrong to be flying all the way to Juneau for trips when I have such an amazing back yard, with maybe the best wildlife viewing in the state! This is an area I have called home for more than 25 years, an area I have explored with my own boat, and even home to my first book project. But I didn’t want to offer a trip unless it could be amazing – finally all the pieces have come together and I am able to offer a trip that will be amazing!

Here are some of the highlights:

  • Only 4 guests
  • Four full days and three nights on a beautiful yacht staying in the heart of Kenai Fjords National Park
  • Helicopter trip with doors off for photography, and an extended remote mountain landing
  • Paddling amongst huge icebergs in Bear Glacier Lagoon
  • Gold Star Alaska Railroad between Anchorage and Seward
  • All inclusive; including great meals, and lodging at top hotels
  • Guided by a professional photographer who has lived in the area for over 25 years

Now I could literally offer this trip for half the price if we brought 10 or more guests, used a van or bus between Anchorage/Seward, stayed at less desirable hotels, used a day charter boat for wildlife viewing requiring a long ride back to Seward each day, skipped the helicopter and Bear Lagoon trips. You get the idea. We pride ourselves in offering the best trips to the best parts of Alaska, at the best times, and we refuse to cut corners. As you compare our Alaska Photo Tours trips with other operators, be sure to look at the details.

The vessel is a 65 foot Bertam yacht. With 4 guests we will have lots of room. I may take more guests in the future, but want to play it safe this first time and make sure there is room for all. The boat has large windows, a big back deck, lots of room in the wheelhouse, and even room on the bow. There is also a large outdoor flying bridge for elevated wildlife viewing.

ADD ON TO THIS ITINERARY:  If anyone wants to continue and do more in Alaska, Janine is a certified travel agent and has developed relationships with the best lodges and travel operators in the state, and would be happy to assist in planning other activities to do while here.

For example, after you return from Kenai Fjords let us arrange for a four night trip to Denali. Denali is a place photographers aren’t allow to guide, but we will provide lots of advice before you go. After Denali return to Anchorage and join us on our Alaska Bear and Puffin trip for the ultimate Alaska experience!!!

Finally, I am able to run this trip at different times during the summer. As long as we have 4 guests the price would be close to the same (hotels might be higher in July affecting the price slightly). If you have a group of 4 let us know what dates you are considering and lets make it happen!
