Your 3-hour shore excursion begins right at the Sitka port. Meet your guide dockside, and after slipping on the provided rain gear and life vest, step aboard a custom-built, fast-moving vessel. As your captain navigates the boat through Sitka Sound, watch for whales, eagles and harbor seals.
Arrive at the kayaking base camp and receive a safety briefing on maneuvering a tandem kayak. No prior experience is required and kayakers of all ages will enjoy this tour. Practice paddling techniques and then follow your guide’s lead into the water.
During the approx. 1.5-hour kayaking journey, admire the lush mountain scenery and see if you can spot bears and black-tailed deer along the shoreline.
Back at base camp, refuel with a delicious snack of clam chowder, crackers and hot apple cider, before enjoying transport back to Sitka port.
