Juneau Shore Excursion: Tongass Wildlife Kayaking Adventure
- Free snacks included
- All necessary equipment included
- Choice of morning or afternoon departure
- Led by a local guide
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!

Perfect! We were a small group of 4 with mixed experience kayaking. The boats (Current design, like my boat at home!) were terrific and the rest of the equipment was first class! Our guide Miles was knowledgable, enthusiastic and lots of fun! This excursion was one of the highlights of our trip in AK! The scenery was wonderful, and we got to see lots of eagles, salmon and a even a lone seal came close to our boats. We will recommend to our friends and will put it on our list of things to do again!

This was without a doubt the highlight of my entire Alaska vacation. We paddled out about two and a half miles and on our way back we came across a young humpback whale who was feeding in a cove. Even without seeing him this would have been the trip of a lifetime but that was icing of the cake. The weather was ideal and our guide was fabulous.
