Stand Up Paddle: Bear Glacier

While most of our Stand Up Paddle adventures are unguided, glacial water was a new element for us, so we hooked up with the best guides in Alaska for the trip of a lifetime.

We were so excited, that we planned it be the first thing to do after landing in Americas Last Frontier. So after grabbing our bags in Anchorage, we headed towards Seward for Liquid Adventures, a rad company offering Guided SUP and Kayak Tours at Bear Glacier in Kenai Fjords National Park.

We met our guide, Pyper, who was the wikipedia of Bear Glacier, and jumped on the boat towards the Bay. After laughing at sea otters, a 40 minute boat ride, and short safety talk, we were set free into the chilling iceberg water, and what happened next can only be described in pictures.

Overall, it was an amazing trip, that we highly suggest for anyone, of any skill level. We would give Liquid Glaciers Six out of Five Stars on every social media platform if we could.

Paddle on,

Court & John
