My friend and I did the 3 day, 2 night kayak experience! Goose was our guide, and he was absolutely amazing. I had never been kayaking, my friend had never been camping, but we knew we wanted an adventure. This multi-day trip was absolutely fantastic, and it gave me the remoteness and adventure that I was looking for. During the 3 day trip, you kayak (A LOT) and camp on the beaches each night. Since it was my first time, I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to handle the amount of physical activity required. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was not only manageable but completely fun as well! We had an opportunity to hike into one of the glaciers; it was something I'll never forget. We also got to spend a lot of our time hiking and exploring each of our destinations. I loved getting to see all of the different scenery Alaska has to offer. The wildlife was super cool, and the views are something you have to see to believe. In my opinion, Kayaking was the best way I could have possibly gotten to see the beautiful state of Alaska for the first time! I went during June, so these recommendations are for that time period! 1. Bring bug spray, a LOT of bug spray 2. Bring a head net to keep the mosquitos away 3. Bring a hat to wear under the head net. You don't want the net on your face all day... 4. Even if you don't think you need it, put sunscreen on your hands. That was the only part of my body exposed, and my hands got very burned! 5. Wear a rain-proof pair of paints and jacket 6. Wear the rainboots. I didn't want to have to wear the boots, but I'm glad I did! You need them. 7. Don't be worried about the food. I'm a super picky eater, and I ate very well the whole time. They were willing to work with me and we compiled a menu that worked for everyone. The food was SO good! 8. Bring a waterproof phone holder to wear around your neck or attach to your PFD, you'll want pictures

My friend and I last minute signed up to do a group kayak tour the next day with Anadyr. We choose the Columbia glacier so we could hopefully catch a glimpse of it calving. When we showed up the next day there was no one else there! Scott the owner said that he was going to give us a private tour rather than cancel the day. We got geared up with warm fisherman pants and boots and headed to the boat- we saw lots of animals and cool scenery along the way to the glacier. We got to explore ice caves and watch huge pieces of the glacier calve into the sea. It was a beautiful sunny day! We learned tons about the glacier and history of the bay. Our guide got pictures and video of us. It was a 10 hour day but it went by so fast! I would highly recommend this company and this tour!

Very accommodating when booking reservations. Perfect adventure for families with children; our tour guides, Aidan and Lindsay, were very knowledgeable about the glacier and made the tour fun and exciting for everyone, would definitely go back.

One of the best moments of my life, Columbia Glacier was an amazing Trip! September couldn't have been any nicer, amazing trip kayaking through the ice flow. Goose was great at keeping us informed and safe. Thank you Scott for a wonderful boat ride, "EYE CANDY" all day long!! Thank you Alaska and Anadyr for making the day.

Experience of a lifetime kayaking around icebergs to within 1/4 mile of Columbia Glacier, to watch the many calving moments! Our guide, Aiden was very knowledgeable, explaining all the science behind glaciers and he had a lot of experience in ensuring our safety. The gear Anadyr provides is ample to keep you warm and dry, and the kayaks are quite stable. Aiden also provided us with great photos of our experience!
