Fox Island About the Island
In the heart of Resurrection Bay
Kenai Fjords Wilderness Lodge is located on the beautiful and remote Fox Island, just a short boat ride from Seward, Alaska. Your adventure begins in Seward when you step aboard a Kenai Fjords Tours wildlife and glacier cruise…
Arrive on the island and indulge in gourmet meals prepared by your island chef. Awake to morning coffee or tea and watch Kenai Fjords National Park come alive from the comfort of your cabin. Get out your camera or sketchbook and capture the natural beauty of your surroundings. Treat yourself to walking/hiking and various evening programs offered by our resident naturalist. Expand your time at sea by adding one of our various wildlife and glacier day cruises, or sea kayaking to any stay. Your time on Fox Island is your time.
“Kenai Fjords Wilderness Lodge on Fox Island far exceeded our expectations! From the time we took our first step onto the dock until we were seated in our reserved seats on the tour boat back to Seward, we were treated like royalty.”
Tom & Karen
Fox Island is a world away from the ordinary. The waters surrounding it are a rich blue green color that reflect the weather and lap upon the shore. Marine wildlife is abundant near Fox Island, and guests cruising to or from the island commonly see Stellar sea lions, otters, whales, Dall's porpoise, and an endless variety of seabirds that include eagles, puffins, cormorants, and murres.
Each of our eight cozy waterfront Guest Cabins is heated, and comfortably accommodates a family of four adults. Lighting is powered by solar and wind generators, but there is no telephone, television or radio to interrupt this peaceful getaway.
Sea Kayaking Guides
Paddle the pristine waters surrounding Fox Island on a guided sea kayaking tour. No experience is necessary. Kayaking gear is provided, however we suggest that guests wear layered clothing for their comfort.
Solar Powered Generators
As part of our commitment to preserving this pristine wilderness getaway, Kenai Fjords Wilderness Lodge and the Fox Island Day Lodge derive the majority of their electrical power from generators powered by the sun (we have propane as a backup). Guests are requested to turn off lights when not in use.
