Our boat & kayak tour is for anyone who ever dreamed of seeing the wilds of Alaska from the water. You’ll find our floating office cruising the shores of the Tongass National Forest, a few nautical miles and another world away from the cruise ship docks. Together we will visit uninhabited and picturesque waters where you will have the Alaskan experience of a lifetime. With 3 full hours on the water you will see a range of marine and intertidal life. Our comfortable, high speed boat can go anywhere and we aim to find the calmest water and the most wildlife on every tour. We can’t make any promises on behalf of mother nature but regularly see everything from sea stars, jellyfish, seals, and bald eagles to the occasional humpback whale, black bear, and of course the ever elusive killer whale! Description
Alaska Kayak Company is excited to give our guests the opportunity to leave the city and experience the Alaska we love.
Tim & Mary will meet you at the rain gauge, and we’ll take a short stroll to historic Thomas Basin, where our warm, dry small craft is harbored. You’ll only share our floating office with a maximum of 4 guests. We have plenty of storage space on the boat to stow your backpacks and shopping bags while we adventure. We will set sail and enjoy the best views of Ketchikan from the water.
The beauty of our floating office is that it goes anywhere the adventure takes us. Our kayaking location is dependent on the weather, the tides, and the wildlife. While Mary gets you geared up in all the high quality equipment you may need to face the Alaskan elements, Tim will lower our expedition-style tandem kayaks off the boat and into the water. Our boats are super comfortable and very stable, they feel great whether you are a first time paddler or a seasoned veteran. Your hour and a half kayak expedition happens at your pace, on our playground. We will have the opportunity to view the amazing intertidal ecosystem from a paddles distance away and experience all the tranquility the Tongass National Forest coastline has to offer. We can’t make any promises on behalf of mother nature but regularly see everything from sea stars, jellyfish, seals, and bald eagles to the occasional humpback whale, black bear, and of course the ever elusive killer whale!
After the paddle we will return to the expedition vessel where you will be greeted by a snack of wild Alaskan smoked salmon and weather appropriate beverages. The cruise back into town is fast, comfortable, and guaranteed to get you there in plenty of time to catch your cruise ship!Highlights
