Kayakers Cove is a rustic, hostel style lodging located on Resurrection Bay, 12 miles by water taxi from Seward, Alaska. In addition to the twelve individual bunks located in the main lodge, there are two separate private cabins available which include double beds and a sleeping loft. Use of kitchen facilities, dishes and utensils is included. Because of the remote nature of our hostel, we suggest you carefully review our suggestions of what to bring with you.

Thank you, Justine! We’re so glad you enjoyed your visit his year. Quite often it can be stormy and windy closer to town and glassy calm kayaking out here.

"There are cabins for rent or the option of sleeping in the hostel section above the shared cooking area in the comfortable main house. I've slept in both and both cabins and the hostel are comfortable. The hostel is less expensive but the cabins are not expensive either."
