Ketchikan, AK, USA
About Southeast Exposure Outdoor Adventure Center
Southeast Exposure Ketchikan - Kayaking, Zipline & Zodiac Boat Tours. Welcome to Southeast Exposure. We started taking Kayaking Tours in 1986 from our home in downtown Ketchikan. Kayaks soon took over the yard. In 2005 we moved our operation north to beautiful Clover Pass, three miles from the end of the road. The protected waters here are dotted with evergreen islands. To realize our dream of having a zipline course and move the kayak tours away from the floatplanes, large boats, wind and the noise of the waters of downtown, we purchased an estate and started to renovate and add. We built a zipline course with 8 lines in the big cedars and installed transition elements as well as a zipline that zooms down to an ocean platform. We also installed an optional climbing wall with stairs to climb to the top platform. We support our Tatoosh Islands and Misty Fiords kayak tours with three vessels: Two 24’ Rigid Hulled inflatables (RIBs) and a 24’ landing craft. Our Zodiac Boatman Tour features three custom built 14’ rigid hulled boats. The kayak fleet would never fit anywhere in our two previous locations. What will you see out here in Clover Pass? Islands ringed by protected waters Seals, sea lions, eagles, intertidal life, jumping salmon, deer and possibly orcas on the hunt and transiting humpback whales.

We did this tour as an excursion on our Alaska cruise. Jared and Peter did a great job with our group of 12. They provided rain gear and dry bags for the zodiac ride to the island where we launched the kayaks. Kayaking was about 3 miles in about 2 hours; we had hot cocoa and

We arrived on the Norwegian Joy. We booked directly through Southeast exposure which saved a ton of money vs booking through NCL. Southeast exposure provided very good instructions to the pick up point which was near the dock, only a few min walk. The ziplines were really fun
