    What to Expect
    Your shore excursion begins right at the Sitka port. Meet your guide dockside, and after slipping on the provided rain gear and life vest, step aboard a custom-built, fast-moving vessel. As your captain navigates the boat through Sitka Sound, watch for whales, eagles and harbor seals.

    Arrive at the kayaking base camp and receive a safety briefing on maneuvering a tandem kayak. No prior experience is required and kayakers of all ages will enjoy this tour. Practice paddling techniques and then follow your guide’s lead into the water.

    During the kayaking journey, admire the lush mountain scenery and see if you can spot bears and black-tailed deer along the shoreline.

    Back at base camp, refuel with a delicious snack of clam chowder, crackers and hot apple cider, before enjoying transport back to Sitka port.

    We will ensure your timely return to the Sitka port for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call.

    We went out at 7.30 with Rebecca, Connor and Tim. A quick trip up to the inlet where everything was explained. We set off in our kayaks and saw seals, bald eagles and other birds. Tim was a knowledgeable guide and worked well with the group. On returning to the floating

    A boat takes you to a quiet estuary. Instructed briefly and then off you go. Chance to see bald eagles and get a taste of kayaking. Moderate activity level.

    The kayaking was very cool and we had spectacular weather for it. We saw a sea lion, eagles, sea stars, and learned about the area, which was great. At first I thought it was going to be in the open sea, which had my friend a bit nervous but it's in a quiet bay so no worries

    My husband and I had a GREAT time! The crew were all friendly and wanted you to have the best time. Don't need to be a great kayaker, they will show you all you need. The hot chowder and snacks after were also amazing. We even had a seal come right up to the boat!

    This was the perfect cruise ship excursion as we were able to see the remote areas of Sitka close up while getting some much needed exercise at the same time. I loved that our group was small (3 double kayaks) and Garrett was an excellent tour guide. He made sure we were suited
