We use top-quality fiberglass boats that are beginner-friendly. Two guests per boat. No experience is needed for our kayak trips although experienced paddlers will also enjoy our logistical support and “local knowledge”.
Some trips involve use of a “water taxi” to greatly extend our range and get you to some of the most spectacular areas.
Each night we’ll camp either in the rainforest or on a beach. Since kayaks are so good at carrying big loads, we enjoy a comfortable camp and great meals.
While Prince William Sound is somewhat protected from huge ocean storms, seas can sometimes be quite rough. Kayaking is a very weather-dependent sport. We minimize risks by planning to paddle when seas and winds are favorable…the key to kayaking is knowing when to stay on the beach!
We always have flexible itineraries and contingency plans. You’ll need a flexible attitude, an adventurous spirit, and a willingness to cope with the challenges of this sport. This is true expedition kayaking, even if we only go for a few days. We do not do day trips.
Children over 8 years old can often be accommodated on short, custom kayak trips. No experience is required but adults must be prepared to paddle!
This activity is included in the following adventure tours:
You'll sea kayak, trek on a glacier, learn ice climbing and explore the Alaska backcountry on this challenging trip.
We jacked up the adrenaline level of the Extreme Week by adding in Class V rafting and a helicopter!
A great sample of Alaskan adventure with many of our favorite activities.
