Our new water taxi
service offers two options for
transportation; our 28' Bayweld landing craft, the Baylink II, for up to six
people or our 35' UniFlight vessel, the Northern Star, for larger groups.
The landing craft allows us to get you on and off beaches easier and enables
us to haul larger loads likes camping gear, 4 wheelers, kayaks, bicycles and
other freight. The Northern Star is perfect for large groups of up to
twenty-four and can be used for landing at a dock or along with the Bay Link
to shuttle groups to trail heads and other destinations without docks.
Island /Kachemak Bay Cruise
Join us for a narrated cruise to the famous bird rookery at Gull Island.
This is a great way to see puffins, cormorants, kittiwakes and other
seabirds while you learn about their diets, habits and migratory
patterns. Watch for sea otters and an occasional whale as you cruise
Kachemak Bay. In addition to Gull Island you will cruise to 60 foot rock
and into Eldred Passage and Tutka Bay. This trip is a favorite of
everyone from avid photographers to those just looking for a good time
on the water. You won’t want to miss this cruise.
You will cruise along on the Northern Star, a Coast Guard inspected
vessel, that is enclosed to keep you warm and cozy while providing you a
great view through large windows. There is also an opportunity to go
outside while at Gull Island so that you can take pictures and see the
birds up close. Boat departs at 1 p.m. and returns by 3:30 p.m. The cost
is $80 for adults and $30 for children under 12 years old. Family and
large group prices available.
