The first leg of your adventurous journey will be by boat. After a 20-minute ride, you'll transfer to land and receive a friendly greeting from your guides, who will provide basic instructions before you start out on your 2.5-hour paddle. For your convenience, our kayaks have a center pod, which makes it unnecessary to paddle in sync.

Before long, you'll feel comfortable looking around at the wildlife and observing the wonders of Alaska, with looming mountains and rain forest growth that comes right up to the shoreline.

Your guides, who are trained naturalists, will point out active bald eagle nesting sites, as well as river otters, black tail deer, and even bears, that can often be observed in mid to late summer. Additionally, sea lions, orcas, and humpback whales often play a role in your time on the amazingly clear water.

We'll supply dry bags to protect your valuables, rain gear for inclement weather, and binoculars to share with the group.

Prior to your return to Ketchikan, you'll be treated to a snack of smoked salmon and hot drinks.

02:00 PM, 07:00 AM, 08:00 AM, 10:00 AM, 12:00 PM, 01:00 PM, 02:30 PM, 03:00 PM, 11:00 AM, 09:00 AM,

Meeting instructions:
Specific pick up or taxi instructions will appear on your voucher after you purchase your trip.

Special instructions:
- Please dress in layers and wear tennis shoes, rubber boots, or sport sandals. Hiking boots are too bulky for the kayaks. You'll step from the dock into your kayak and your feet will not get wet.
- If necessary, rain gear, jackets and pants, will be provided.
- Actual departure times may vary by 30 minutes. You'll be notified of the exact departure time at the time your booking is confirmed.
- All participants will paddle in double sea kayaks. If there is an odd number in the group, guests will be paired with another guest or a guide. Sea kayaking requires a moderate level of physical activity and is not recommended for guests with back problems or limited upper body strength.

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
