Come explore the Pacific coastal waters like the locals do! Our combination boat & kayak tour is for anyone who ever dreamed of seeing the wilds of Alaska from the water. Cruising the shores of the Tongass National Forest, a few nautical miles and another world away from the cruise ships and their docks. Together we will visit uninhabited and picturesque waters where you will have the Alaskan experience of a lifetime.
With 3 full hours on the water you will see a range of marine and inter-tidal life. With our comfortable, high speed boat we aren't tied to the waters you can reach from a dock departing kayak tour. We go where the best water and the most wildlife is on every tour. We can’t make any promises on behalf of mother nature but regularly see everything from sea stars, jellyfish, seals, and bald eagles to the occasional humpback whale, black bear, and of course the ever elusive orca!

Would highly recommend this tour company. Unlike some of the larger companies, they keep the tours small and really care about making sure you have a good experience, and not just getting as many people through as possible every hour on the hour. That also...More
