Your adventure begins with an equipment and safety orientation by your guides, and then you’ll set out at a leisurely pace to explore sheltered waterways, harbors, and coves.
Sitka’s dependence on the sea will be fully evident as you paddle near fishermen, tug boat crews, and Coast Guard sailors all tending to their vessels. Beyond the harbor, we’ll explore island shores and kelp forests, while keeping an eye out for abundant wildlife above and below the water’s surface. You may also have the opportunity to visit a small aquarium and salmon hatchery, or watch wild salmon gathering near a stream, preparing to spawn.
Throughout the tour, your attentive, friendly guide will relate interesting stories about the area, explain the ecology of the forests and ocean, and help point out wildlife and other interesting sights. A light snack will be provided.
