Prince William Sound is a remote area with no road access from our side of the peninsula. Great Alaska guests access this amazing region on day cruises of Kenai FJords National Park, and our fishing guests access it via our 29 foot offshore cruisers, the Stellar and The Fair Chase. There are also access points in Whittier, Cordova and Water taxi companies from Seward as well.
Prince William Sound and Kenai Fjords National Park have similar ecosystems, habitat, wildlife, glaciers, and fjords. These highlights in the Sound are spread across hundreds of miles of coastline. In Kenai Fjords, those similar features are in a much more concentrated area. So our guests prefer to visit Kenai Fjords on their busy Alaska vacation. Most of our trips include wildlife and glacier tours in Kenai Fjords, along with hiking, biking and fishing on the Kenai Peninsula.
Prince Willam Sound is the nearly open water outside of the town of Seward. From Seward, Resurrection bay runs about 37 miles to Cape Resurrection and the entrance to Prince Willam Sound. Once in the open water (past cape Aialik or Cape resurrection), I let my clients know that if you sailed Southwest, the first landfall you would make is Hawaii! That allows for some pretty big swells on the occasion. Prince william Sound is one of Alaska's most beautiful Saltwater regions.
