Kayak Tours in Alaska

In a state renowned for its wide open spaces, one of the best ways to enjoy Alaska’s stunning vistas is from a kayak or canoe. We offer a range of Alaska kayak tours, with options suitable for everyone, from complete beginners to more experienced paddlers. Switch off from the noise and stress of everyday life while soaking up the authentic Alaskan wilderness.

If you’re arriving into Sitka and want to escape the hustle and bustle of your cruise ship, you could join the Sitka Sound Paddle and Cruise tour. Take pleasure in three hours of peace and tranquility in Sitka Sound, where you’ll likely see otters, seals, and porpoises. Your expert guide will answer your questions as they guide you around the kelp forests and narrow inlets that can only be accessed by kayak. 

Achieving a pleasing balance between excitement and relaxation is the Backcountry Jeep and Canoe Safari tour. First off, what’s not to love about roaring around Revillagigedo Island in a 4x4 Jeep Wrangler? After enjoying some high-octane thrills, the pace slows with a gentle canoe paddle across the mountain lake, followed by a hike through the cool, shaded rainforest to a remote camp where you’ll delight in a well-earned - and extremely tasty - feed.  

For the ultimate in otherworldly landscapes mixed with the old-school pleasure of a scenic train ride, you could consider Anchorage’s Glacier Blue Kayak and Grandview Train Tour. Take an early morning paddle on the wonderfully peaceful waters of Spencer Lake, before hiking to Spencer Glacier’s giant Blue Wall. As if that wasn’t enough, you’ll also experience an unforgettable journey aboard the Glacier Discovery train, considered to be Alaska’s most beautiful railroad.
