Take a 4-hour guided kayak tour to Clover Pass, with scheduling to fit virtually every cruise ship. This is an amazing waterway with several rainforest islands, about 15 miles north of town. Your guides will get you away from the masses as you paddle scenic island shorelines where dense rainforest meets the sea. The Tongass National Forest is the largest National Forest in the U.S. and surrounds Clover Pass. View sea lions, seals, lots of eagles and other birds, a huge variety of tidal life, and sometimes humpback whales, orcas and porpoises along the route.

Description:
This tour is very educational, and is about much more than just paddling a kayak. Your kayaking adventure starts with a paddle down a wall of sea stars. With the dramatic Alaskan tide swings, this large wall becomes exposed, and all its residents are then eye-level from your kayak. At high tide, the critters climb up the wall and are easily seen in the amazingly clear water.

Sea stars, urchins, sea cucumbers, limpets, chitons, nudibranchs, etc. cling to the wall, living in the ebb and flow of the tide, just waiting for you to pull out your camera. Your guides will take the time to show you the different critters, what they're doing, and how they're interacting.

Your nature viewing eco-tour continues as you paddle by a large bald eagle nest with resident adults, and typically young baby eagles throughout summer. Continuing around other islands, you'll view another eagle's nest, and some great tide zones along the rainforest shoreline. Your tour concludes as you kayak back through the local Alaskan fishing boats, in the marina where you began.

Transportation from your cruise ship/hotel, and excellent gear is provided. After gearing up and a quick lesson, you'll board your kayak and your nature viewing will begin.The total tour time is about 4 hours from when your guide meets you to when you return downtown, with approximately 2┬╝ hours on the water.

Eco-tours are generally limited to 8 guests (with 2 guides). Private party tours for up to 16 guests are sometimes available upon request. Your guides will pick you up right at your ship or wherever you're staying.

You'll be using tandem sit-inside kayaks for their roominess and stability. Sit on top kayaks are available upon advanced request.
