From $109 per person + $10 Tax
Transfer by bus to North Douglas Island for scenic views of Mendenhall Glacier and Auke Bay. Upon arrival you’ll be outfitted in life jackets and rain gear. Your professional guide will teach you paddling techniques, then you’ll slide into your two person kayak with your traveling companion or a new friend for a water experience like non other.
These stable yet nimble kayaks allow you to silently approach wildlife and give you a sense of how the famed Aleut Indians traveled the coastal waterways of Alaska in search of pelts. You will be led in groups of five to six kayaks to places such as the Mendenhall Wetlands where you may have the opportunity to view Mendenhall Glacier from an ocean explorer’s point of view. Your guide will explain the significance of places like Smugglers Cove, the history of the surrounding area, and help identify local flora and fauna. You may see porpoise, seals, sea lions, eagles, herons, deer or even whales.
NOTE: Waterproof camera and warm comfortable clothing are recommended. Suitable for ages 6 and above.
