    What to Expect
    Experience Alaska’s awe-inspiring beauty on this kayaking tour from Sitka. On this unforgettable wilderness adventure, meet your group at the Sitka downtown dock and suit up in quality rain gear and life jackets. Then, climb aboard a custom-built vessel for an exciting sightseeing tour on the Gulf of Alaska. Your captain will scan the sea for wildlife, including whales, and identify points of interest along the way.

    Head to the floating base camp, where you’ll receive a safety instruction from your knowledgeable guide on how to use the two-person kayaks. These stable yet maneuverable crafts let you enjoy the natural beauty of the protected bays and inlets near Sitka. Groups will be led by an experienced guide, who will show you expert paddling techniques. Enjoy a 1.5-hour kayaking trip around the area and learn about the surrounding marine environment. Spot colorful marine life, see an eagle swooping from the tree tops and admire the grandeur of the lush rainforest. You may even see brown bears, harbor seals or black-tailed deer! No prior kayaking experience is required and all ages are welcome.

    After kayaking, refuel with a hearty warm snack consisting of clam chowder, crackers and hot apple cider.

    No previous experience of Kayaking so a bit worried about overturning. We needn't have worried though. The kayaks were very stable and the instructions and help very good. The floating base is a good way from the dock so you are in a fast boat for the trip to the base and back.
