The Kenai Peninsula lies to the south of Alaska’s most populous city, Anchorage, and extends into Prince William Sound on the east and Cook Inlet on the west. Because of extensive glacial activity and plate tectonics, Kenai’s coastline is littered with deep fjords, some are 1000 ft deep.
In 1980, Kenai Fjords National Park was established to help protect the numerous icefield and fjord environments. Currently the park covers over 1000 sq. miles. One popular excursion in Kenai is kayaking the fjords’ pristine waters to see sights such as the magnificent Aialik Glacier up close.
Alyssa heard about this and exclaimed, “Wouldn’t it be so cool to kayak right over Killer Whales!”
My eyes widened and I gulped as I thought about kayaking in frigid water floating precariously above a 6 ton carnivore. “Uh, yeah that would lots of fun.”
