After your cruise ship docks in Juneau, a 30-minute drive will bring you to a private beach near Amalga Harbor and Yankee Cove; you'll pass Mendenhall, Herbert and Eagle glaciers along the way. Keep your eyes on the surrounding rivers, peat bogs and spruce-hemlock trees for local wildlife including porcupine, deer, beavers and eagles. By the time your shore excursion ends, hopefully you’ll have seen an array of Alaskan wildlife.
At the beach, your guide will help you get outfitted in quality gear before you slip away from the beach in a tandem kayak to begin your Tongass Wildlife Kayaking Adventure. This area is the perfect breeding ground for krill and phytoplankton due to the fresh water that pours into the coastline from the glaciers. The plankton-rich waters attract a myriad of wildlife looking for an easy meal. Humpback whales traveling through to Hawaii often spend the whole summer feeding in these waters and from time to time orcas can be spotted cruising the area, as well. Seals, porpoises, sea lions and many species of sea birds are also often seen.
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 12 participants. This is an easy to moderate adventure that requires no previous experience, making it perfect for beginners and families. You need only bring your camera and an appetite for adventure. Join the locals for a true Alaskan wildlife experience!
