EXPLORING ALASKA'S KENAI FJORDS is a comprehensive coastal guide for mariners. The guidebook has been designed both for trip planning and for use as a resource manual while in the fjords. The book is divided into three parts:

Kenai Fjords Major Embayments and Icefields

Part I: Introduction to the Kenai Fjords

Part I comprises five chapters that provide coastal orientation of the parks and wilderness lands, with an overview of special destinations for cruising mariners as well as identifing regional wildlife concentrations.

Aialik Glacier, Aialik Glacial Basin

Part II: History of the Kenai Fjords

Part II describes the physical forces that shaped the Kenai Peninsula's outer coast 40 million years ago, as well as today's unprecedented post Little Ice Age retreat. It also recounts human history in the fjords involving the indiginous Sugpiaq people, Russian fur traders, and the explorers who charted the Kenai seacoast.

Part III: Coastal Guide to the Kenai Fjords

Part III describes, in detail, the seacoast and major embayments between Port Bainbridge and Port Chatham, (including the Kenai Fjords National Park). Illustrated with 43 regional maps and 140 photographs, it provides tips for seafarers and ocean kayakers about places of interest, wildlife areas, vessel anchorages, camp areas, public lands, beachcombing hot spots, tidal lagoons, and reliable kayak landing locations.
