Description

One of the best Alaskan wilderness experiences is nestled just 20 minutes from downtown Juneau. This guided kayak rental package is great if you want the gratification of being “out there” on your own. Participants who are physically fit and are experienced kayakers will enjoy this fully customizable self-guided route.

Your journey begins with a 30-minute scenic van ride to the kayak shop in Auke Bay harbor. After a friendly greeting from your guide, you'll get outfitted with all necessary paddle gear and provided with a safety briefing of the kayak. A short 10-minute drive to the launch site on the west side of Mendenhall Lake yields spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and Tongass National Forest.

Enjoy paddling near icebergs, arctic tern nesting cliffs and giant waterfalls en route to the terminus of the glacier. Marvel at the incredible views of Mendenhall Glacier and be sure to keep an eye out for abundant Alaskan wildlife!

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.
