Next, you will board a sea kayak and your expert guide will show you the basics of paddling. Sea kayaking is easy to learn and outfitted with the proper gear, you will soon be gliding silently along the shores of the lake. This pristine lake is uncrowded, and the scenery is spectacular. Huge waterfalls spill off of the cliffs surrounding the lake; lush green forests crowd the shoreline; and wildlife abounds. Your guide will reveal the secret workings of the rainforest as you pause at the base of a waterfall. Beginning in July, sockeye salmon spawn in one of the clear streams that feed into the lake. Eagles and bears are often attracted to this spot.
After paddling back to shore, you will enjoy a picnic lunch before driving back to Haines. There you will board the high-speed catamaran for your journey back to Skagway and your return to your ship, filled with memories and photographs from an unforgettable adventure.
