weather Interruption Policy:
Due to the nature of boat travel over a large ocean bay such as Resurrection Bay, there is always a chance that heavy wind and waves can make boat travel unsafe. Shearwater Cove is well inside Resurrection Bay and very protected from outside weather, so the chance of a weather interruption is very small. However, if your trip is cancelled due to bad ocean weather we will refund 100% of your booking cost. We are constantly monitoring the weather and will notify you in advance if conditions seem unsafe. Please note that bad weather pertains to wind and sea state only. Rain and fog are part of the beauty of the Kenai Fjords! Without it this place would not be so shockingly green and alive.
- No Pets
- No smoking in or near the yurts. Be respectful of non-smoking guests.
We welcome families who are traveling with children. However, there are conditions at Shearwater Cove that may be unsafe for young children. Please contact us before booking if you are traveling with children under 8 years old.
water taxi schedule
On the morning of your check-in we will meet you at the Seward Small Boat Harbor at either 10:00am or at 12:00pm. The morning of check-out you will depart Shearwater Cove either at 8:30am or at 11:00am. These times depend on guest volume and scheduling. An email with your specific check in and check out times will be sent to you in advance. In this email we will confirm your water taxi times as well as details on where to park and recommended items to bring. The water taxi ride is about 40 minutes each way. If you have a specific schedule let us know and we will do our best to accommodate.
While planning activities following check-out, please give yourself an extra 1-2 hours of flexibility in your schedule. Shearwater Cove is a remote location that is only accessible by boat and weather conditions may delay or slow the ride back to town. Give yourself an extra hour or two of time to transition into your next activity/destination so that in the case of delay you do not miss your next activity or stress about time. Much of the beauty and awesome experience of Shearwater Cove is due to its being removed from the busy city life to which so many of us are accustomed. Please remember that travel time to and from these types of places can vary because of that wonderful quality.
