Start your Taste of the Tongass Kayak tour with a pick-up at the cruise docks and transfer over to the kayak base for gear fitting, before heading for the launch location just a ways north of Juneau. Your guides will select a location for the day based on weather patterns and tides while trying to maximize wildlife opportunities. A quick orientation equips you with all the information you will need, and then hit the waters, traveling together as a group while your professional guide provides an informative backdrop. Learn about the ecology and wildlife of the area while savoring the 360 views! When you return to shore, a true Juneau feast will have been prepared for you including Tracy's Crab Shack bisque, smoked salmon dip, kelp salad, and much more!
At about 6 hours in total duration, the Taste of the Tongass Kayak tour provides you with plenty of time to escape from the crowds and get in touch with that piece of pristine Alaska, all in the atmosphere of a small-group setting. The casual pace is conducive to taking pictures, chatting with fellow travelers and absorbing the compelling information from the local guides, while the delicious meal waiting for your return showcases the best food Juneau has to offer. Occasional wildlife sightings are welcomed along the way from curious marine wildlife. There's something special about the connection that a motorless, self-propelled adventure can provide, bridging the gap between guests and nature, and delivering that 'Alaskan experience' many are hoping to find.
