Inside Passage Sea Kayaking

Offer Image
Every summer a handful of adventurous explorers set out to paddle the 1,300-mile Inside Passage from Washington to Alaska. Take your turn on the water from Haines and see what the allure is all about.

Inside Passage Sea Kayaking Shore Excursion

On this invigorating tour from Skagway, travel to Haines and kayak on a portion of the breathtaking and scenic Inside Passage. Board the Haines-Skagway Fast Ferry from Skagway for a scenic and narrated 45-minute ride to Haines. Upon your 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 waiting for you after a short 5-minute walk from the ferry pier. Your knowledgeable guide will 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, and ponchos (if needed). After a safety briefing and equipment introduction and fitting, you are off and paddling.

You will be on the water for approximately 2 hours during this Skagway excursion. Look out for eagles, sea lions, seals, dall porpoise, humpback whales, and other marine wildlife along the journey. Your guide is an expert naturalist and will share their extensive knowledge about the fjord, marine wildlife, and local geography. Stop off at a remote beach to stretch your legs and take in the beautiful scenery of Southeast Alaska. Once off the water, stay on the beach to enjoy a waterside picnic-style lunch.

Take a short walk from here back to the ferry and the transfer back to Skagway, where you will be taken back to your ship.

Please Note: If ocean conditions are unsuitable, the tour will move to Chilkoot Lake, which is a 30-minute ride along the Chilkoot River. The lake is surrounded by mountains with alpine waterfalls and salmon spawning beds.
