Tongass Coast Wildlife Kayak

Tongass Coast Wildlife Kayak Kayak Trip

Get away from the crowds and share the water with marine wildlife, surrounded by breathtaking vistas! You'll be picked up and transported by van to a private beach near Sunshine Cove. The drive “out the road” takes about forty-five minutes and passes the Mendenhall, Herbert, and Eagle glaciers.

Juneau's short and scenic highway also offers close up views across the Inside Passage to the Chilkat Range while crossing several rivers, peat bogs, and old growth spruce-hemlock trees.You may even see porcupine, black tail deer, bear, beaver, martin, eagles, ravens, and much more.

After oufitting and orientation, ABAK will launch tandem kayaks from the sand/gravel beach for paddling in a protected area. The saltwater is alive with fresh water gently pouring into the coastline from our glaciers and rain which creates a sea curtain that is the perfect environment for krill and phytoplankton populations. Humpback Whales will stay in our area throughout the summer feeding on the local biomass before heading to Hawaii or Baja. We often encounter the majestic humpback, seals, sea lion, porpoise, sea birds, and sometimes Orcas or whales.

Rain or shine, this is quite simply the finest half-day kayak trip you will find. Certified guides lead an entertaining coast wilderness route that is limited to twelve participants. You need only bring your camera and an appetite for adventure because we outfit you with all equipment and gear, healthy snack, and beverage. Join us locals for a true Alaska experience
