I had a great experience using True North Kayak. The night my friend and I arrived in Homer, we went to the Truth North office to see what type of hiking we could do the following day. The lady working the office (can’t remember her name), was very helpful and suggested that we do the hike to the Grewingk Glacier.... More

We used True North for a 3-day kayak/camping/cabin trip and they were exceptional. While we brought our own rain gear we could have used theirs. They had everything you needed, bring your tents and camp gear, and you can rent sleeping bags. They arrange for boat pickup on the spit to the island where their kayaks are stationed and we...

My husband and I hired a water taxi to take us across the bay to do some hiking. The captain was a very friendly, courteous young man. We were late getting back to the beach for our return trip so my husband called the office and they were able to accommodate our needs. The office staff was also very helpful... More

We did the 3/4 day trip and had a fantastic time. What can go wrong when you start off by landing on the beach where an active eagle's nest resides??? We saw the eaglets being fed and that is before we even got into our kayaks. We learned lots of interesting facts about the islands we kayaked around and saw... More

We were just a small group of 5 paddlers with our guide Curtis. You drive out to Yukon Island first with a motorboat and get ouftitted there with everything you need. The whole staff is friendly and very helfpul. Curtis was an excellent guide with us first time kayakers and we felt very safe out there. We saw eagles and... More

We went tandem kayaking on a rainy day but we were perfectly outfitted with waterproof pants, jackets, and boots. Once we got to Yukon island we were told all the ins and outs for kayaking that made sense even to amateurs. Our guide, Aiden, was very friendly and helped us get into the boats which surprisingly stayed dry during the... More

True North is excellent in every way. We took an overnight kayaking/camping trip with them to Tutka Bay, and then they arranged for us to spend the night at a cabin on Hespeth Island. Our guide, the kayaks, the camping equipment, the food, the location, the cabin - wow, it was perfection. There were 4 of us, and Jan was... More

We had a group that varied in age and ability. Allison was so friendly and accommodating and really went above and beyond to make sure everyone was safe and enjoying the trip. The vistas were outstanding and Yukon Island is so pristine and beautiful. We saw eagles, otter(including a mom calling out to her baby) and jelly fish amongst the... More

True North runs half day and full day kayak trips off of Homer spit. The outfit is friendly and professional. They run you across from the spit to a nearby island where they gear you up and get you into your kayak. Our trip ran from 9am to 1 pm but by the time you get there, gear up, get... More
