kayakGuided Juneau Kayak Adventure! Coastal Alaskan Waterways! Glacier Views! Fully Outfitted! Stable, Double Kayaks!

Transfer by bus to North Douglas Islandfor scenic views of the Mendenhall Glacier and Auke Bay. Upon arrival you’ll be outfitted in life jackets and rain gear before beginning your adventure. Your experienced guide will teach you about paddling techniques, then you’ll board a two-person kayak with a new friend or traveling companion for an excursion that will leave you wanting more.

The stable yet nimble kayaks will allow you to silently approach any wildlife in the area and get a sense of how the famed Aleut Indians traveled the coastal waterways of Alaska in search of pelts for the Russian fur trading companies. 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 such as Smugglers Cove and the history of the surrounding area, and help identify local flora and fauna. Paddle for 1 2 to 2 hours, then enjoy a beverage and snack before transferring back to town.
