Add to Itinerary

Get away from the crowds and on to the water for spectacular views of marine wildlife! Our passenger van transports you to the Tongass Rainforest. We've found the best kayak launch location which is reached by a short nature hike.

After being outfitted in gear and given a safety briefing by your guides, we'll launch you from a beach in a tandem sea kayak. We'll paddle on the water for about two-and-a-half hours, looking for wildlife and enjoying the scenic wilderness around us. Keep a look out for harbor seals, sea otters, sea lions, sea birds, fish, and humpback whales. From glacier views to mountain views, our scenic paddling locations on this trip are endless!

Rain or shine, this is quite simply the finest guided half-day kayak trip you'll find. You need only bring your camera and an appetite for adventure. We'll outfit you with all equipment and gear.

As if the day could get any better, we'll take a break for a gourmet Alaskan lunch prepared beachside. Enjoy the best flavors of Juneau in the best setting imagineable!
