After you've settled into your own paddling rhythm, you’ll head out past the breakwater to explore the wild edge of Sitka Sound. You’ll be amazed by the abundance of colorful marine life that inhabits the intertidal zone and kelp forests that fringe the coast. With bald eagles watching from the trees, it's almost certain that you’ll see other wildife: curious harbor seals, massive Steller sea lions, and perhaps a few playful sea otters. You may even see humpback, minke, or orca whales!
At the Causeway Islands, you’ll step ashore to explore the remains of a WWII-era fort, which was hastily abandoned as quickly as it was built. While exploring moss-covered bunkers and fern-rimmed gun emplacements, you can almost feel the healing power of the rain forest. You’ll enjoy a light snack on the beach, and tell a few stories, before starting the paddle back to Sitka.
