Trip Description:

We start this trip at our office with a meeting appx. 1 hr before departure time for paperwork and packing gear. Normally a meeting is scheduled the afternoon or evening prior to departure to meet your guide and address any questions or issues before departing in the morning. We load up and head to the water taxi that leaves at approximately 8:00 am, unless otherwise noted. Your water taxi will take you south towards the Gulf of Alaska following the Kenai Fjords coast. On the water taxi there will be plenty of opportunity to sight see and look for whales, Orcas and other wildlife. The water taxi ride will take 2-3 hours to get to the beach drop off. Overnight camp is set up where we prepare your gear and kayaks for personal comfort. Next we go over some basic kayaking instruction, park regulations, safety tips and determine group priorities and expectations. Depending on conditions and group dynamics you may take an afternoon paddle to get comfortable with the gear and kayaks. From here on out - the Fjord is our oyster! 

Your itinerary is flexible; we will discuss options and offer suggestions after meeting and determining your expectations (taking in to consideration current/expected weather conditions that we will have during the trip). Rain is, and can be, a part of any trip in Alaska and we ask that you come prepared to paddle in challenging conditions if they arise. Please be sure that your clothing and rain wear is good quality.

We also suggest that you consider trip insurance in case of weather and marine warnings force a trip to be canceled or terminated early. 

 

Included:

We provide rubber boots, and gloves to all of our guests. We will provide transportation from your Seward area lodging. We will store your luggage, if needed, for no additional charge. 

Food, hot drinks, snacks, water taxi transports, pre-trip meeting, guide/s with first aid kit, satellite phone, marine radio, charts, camping gear including (tents, cooking & eating gear) sleeping bags with liners, pad, kayaks, kayaking gear, dry bags, poggies, boots, and more!
