The popular Callisto Canyon Cabin at Caines Head is ready for your trip!

Seward Ocean Excursions offers year-round water taxi services in Resurrection Bay and beyond. Our boat is set up for comfortable beach landings and loading/unloading of people and gear. Note that we use a ladder to get on and off the boat (not a drop bow), so you must be able to use a short ladder or a slight rise/drop to get on and off of the boat. Missing Lynx has ample room on top, on the bow, and in the back deck for everything you might need to bring along!

Resurrection Bay has an awesome system of 4 Alaska State Park Cabins, with 2 at Thumb Cove and 2 at Caines Head. These cabins are quite popular during the peak summer months (so book ahead!), but often can be reserved last minute in the non-peak season of Fall through Spring! Since we operate year-round, we are happy to take you and your friends and gear to enjoy the wonders of staying in these awesome cabins at any time!
