Sea kayaking is the best way to experience Alaska’s Prince William Sound.
On this short expedition, you’ll have three days to explore the bays, coves and fjords of the western part of the Sound. Seeing glaciers and waterfalls, and camping on beautiful beaches and in the rain forest.
As we travel each day, we’ll look for a huge variety of sea birds, eagles, sea otters, river otters, bears, seals, sea lions and whales. This is true expedition kayaking, not just a paddle around a long lunch break. You’ll be challenged by the remoteness, the weather and the paddling itself but the rewards can be great.
We’ll be on the water by lunch on Day 1, picked up by water taxi around lunch time on Day 3.
Challenge Level: 3; Includes primitive camping in the Alaska backcountry for 2 nights. Read more about Challenge Levels.
No experience required but you must be over 18, in good physical condition and prepared for the challenges of the Alaska backcountry.
Get a taste of Alaska’s Prince William Sound.
We’ll meet you in Anchorage, and after a gear check and orientation, you’ll enjoy one of the most scenic drives in the world as we head towards the small town of Whittier, the gateway to Prince William Sound. The afternoon will be spent paddling past waterfalls and bird rookeries then on to our campsite in the rainforest.
Wake up to fresh brewed coffee with a great view. Today you’ll paddle past glaciers and ice bergs as we make our way further into Blackstone Bay.
We get picked up by water taxi for a return trip to Whittier then on to Anchorage.
