Haines - Fjords of the Inside Passage Sea Kayaking
Available all year
Ocean kayak trip of a lifetime.
2 person kayak.
View marine life along the way.
Beautiful scenery of Southeast Alaska.
Upon arrival to Haines you will be greeted by your professional kayak guide for the ocean kayak trip of a lifetime. Your 2-person kayaks will be set up on the beach & will be short 5-minute walk from the ferry pier. We’ll choose from a variety of beautiful ocean paddles depending on sea conditions and weather.
Your guides will outfit you with a PFD (personal flotation device), spray skirt & ponchos, if needed. After a safety briefing and equipment introduction/fitting, you are off and paddling.
You will be on the water for about 2 hours. We have seen eagles, sea lions, seals, dall porpoise, humpback whales or other marine wildlife along our way. Your guide is an expert naturalist and will share their extensive knowledge about the fjord, marine wildlife and local geography. We will likely stop off at a remote beach to stretch your legs and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Southeast Alaska. Once off the water, stay on the beach to enjoy a waterside picnic-style lunch.
In an instance where ocean conditions aren’t suitable we’ll head to our backup location on Chilkoot Lake which is a 30-minute van ride along the Chilkoot River. This backup location is surrounded by mountains with alpine waterfalls and salmon spawning beds.

Remarks/requirements: Appropriate warm, layered clothing, guests should dress for a variety of weather, including wind, rain and sun.
