A short paddle on beautiful water, this trip is a great way to learn about kayaking or simply to get out for a short paddle in Alaska's water.
Our 3-hour excursion is ideal for those with limited time, a tight schedule, or for those who want a mild introduction to paddling in the ocean.
After meeting at our office and shuttling out to the beach, we will begin with basic sea kayak instruction. Once on the water, your guide will also provide an informative narration about the small, fascinating creatures in the intertidal zone and geological features along the rocky shoreline. Resurrection Bay is rich with geological history and there are many opportunities for wildlife viewing.
We’ll watch for otters and eagles as we paddle to a small tidal creek to explore a ghost forest and an Alaskan salmon habitat. Later in the summer, Tonsina Creek is filled with running salmon, and it's a huge treat to be able to watch these incredible fish swim up the stream to their spawning grounds at the end of their fascinating life cycle.
Occasionally, Orcas, sea lions and porpoise are sighted. Halfway through this relaxing paddle, we beach our boats along the shore for a refreshing homemade snack and drink.
