Quality, simple DIY boat rental option based out of Seward harbor. $500/day or $250/half day. Cruise on your own through Kenai Fjords National Park or go fishing on your own for halibut and/or salmon.

I was asking a lot of Louis when it came to time, numbers, and price. Louis went above and beyond in catering to my needs in a timely, professional manner. He will do what he needs to in order to make customers happy.

Louis is the best! He will take you where ever you want to go, and he will haul all of your gear. His boat (a landing craft) is equipped with a ramp at the bow. This allows him to "drive" right up to the beach...More

Excellent captain, extremely knowledgeable biologist, went out of his way to accommodate our special requests at a very reasonable price. He made our trip a once in a lifetime adventure - we will be back! Thank you so much Louis!

We took a round trip water taxi from Seward to Resurrection Bay with Louie in mid-June. He was great; on time, knowledgable of the area and really friendly. I definitely recommend using him if you're in the area or want to come to the area!
