Kayaking in Kenai Fjords

Kayaking in Pedersen Lagoon, Kenai Fjords National Park, Alaska.

A kayak is a great way to get around Aialik Bay and Pedersen Lagoon.  This was a little early in the season – the icebergs are a little thick by the entrance at this time of year making it a little tricky picking your way through the maze – tricky but fun!  As the summer continues, it get easier.

There are numerous beaches for camping all around the bay, and the Park Service has food storage boxes at most of the best beaches, so you don’t need to worry about lugging bear proof food containers.  The one thing you do have to worry about it the unpredictable weather.  Short sleeve days like the one pictured aren’t very common.

  1. Hey Ron,

    Wow, looks like you’re having better weather than we’re getting over in the Park. 🙂 It was minus 38 yesterday .. I got out just in time.



  2. Seeing kayaking images like this makes me wonder why I haul mine out just to go down the local river! 🙂 What an incredible view, and by kayak seems like a wonderful way to experience it.

    Thanks guys.

    Carl, it was just as cold in this photo – I don’t need sleeves at -38. 🙂

    You know Mark I was saying you need to bring your diving gear up to Alaska one day – now you better add the kayak as well. You are going to need a big vehicle to haul all the toys when you guys do make the trip!


  4. Hi Ron,

    Lovely blog you’ve got here … I’m glad I found it. As far as the picture goes … I’ll have to admit to a bit of jealousy! I would love to kayak through there. Looking back through your posts, it seems Alaska has much to offer … what a beautiful state. I can’t wait to make my first trip there. As a bit of an aside, I’d love it if you could check out my blog if you’ve got the time. You can find it at:


    Take care … I’ll keep checking in to see what new work you’ve got up.

    Thank you very much Chris.

    You will definitely need to make a trip up this way someday – I’m sure you will end up making many!

    You are right Carl I did. I always have trouble editing comments, so I just left it knowing you would raz me. I was taking the photo and wearing 10 layers of clothing!

  8. Hey Ron,

    I’m not ‘razzin’ ya, man .. I just think it’s important to be accurate, for your own integrity, of course.

    By the way, is there a bear or something in the photo? What’s everyone looking at?




    PS – nice shot, bro.
