Private Charters

You don’t have to venture far outside of Seward to find yourself in the wild. Mountains tower over our picturesque little harbor, and just beyond the breakwall is the vast wilderness of Kenai Fjords. The national park boasts the Harding Ice field which feeds dozens of glaciers; some flowing to tidewater, others pouring into the sea through massive waterfalls along with snowmelt from the surrounding peaks. Thousands of seabirds congregate along the rocky shorelines, while whales, sea lions, otters, and seals swim beneath the surface of the waves. 

It’s in this majestic place that we welcome you aboard Hope and invite you to explore the remote Southcentral coasts of Alaska with us. Our private charters are the best way to take in the beauty of the fjords, whether you’re after adventure or seeking quiet solitude. We can take you on the exclusive overnight fishing trip of your dreams, or the backcountry kayak expedition you’ve always imagined. Our destinations, menu, and itinerary can be custom tailored for a unique and unforgettable Alaskan experience.
