Start out by traveling on our sturdy transport vessel for the exciting 30-45 minute ride to a beach on a remote island. Once ashore, our guide will assist you in setting up your kayak before your "Kayak & Safety 101" orientation.

After you've had some time to test out your kayak in the crystal clear shallows (and get comfortable with your craft), we'll set off for the next group of islands. While paddling through mazes of reef and kelp forest (areas accessible only by kayak), your guide will help identify the colorful marine life visible below, including: crab, sea stars, anemones, sea urchins, jellies, and more.

Don't be surprised if you meet a couple of sea otters, harbor seals, sea lions, porpoise, bald eagles, and a variety of marine birds, along the way!

Next, we'll visit a secluded island to stretch our legs, do a little beachcombing, and enjoy a hearty snack while taking in the amazing views of the sound. Your friendly guide will fill you in on the ecology of the area, and also tell you about the Tlingit people, who still harvest the ocean’s bounty using knowledge passed down since the last ice age.

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.
