Marine Safaris & Sea Kayaking Adventures

You have options


Our “Marine Safaris” provide you with excellent views of marine wildlife, majestic bald eagles, and other fantastic feathered beauties. You’ll also be mesmerized by the almost prehistoric landscape and the trees, plants, and flowers that decorate it. With any luck, you may even catch sight of what inhabits the land; bears, wolves, Sitka blacktail deer, mountain goats, and maybe even a moose. Our unobtrusive vessels enable us to be close to the coastline allowing you to hear the sounds of the birds, waterfalls, whales, eagles, sea lions, and more. The size of our vessels also means every seat has a great view!

We’ll head north to the Channel Islands, Mother Nature steals the show; that’s where the whales hang out. It’s a popular spot for them since what they eat also hangs out there. You’ll see humpback whales (maybe some Killer whales) and unmatched beauty all around you. The notably huge Steller sea lions, harbor seals, Bald Eagles, Dall’s porpoise, and other wildlife are known to make appearances as well.

Our knowledgeable staff will tell you about some of Juneau’s history and show you related points of interest during your tour.


While our small vessels get you close to the water and the wildlife surrounding you; kayaks get you even closer!

You’ll get to see the beauty of the animals, birds, flowers, trees, mountains, islands, and glaciers near Juneau from a unique vantage point. 

Our “fleet” of Sea Eagle 380x Explorer Inflatable kayaks each has two 11.5″ fully inflated chambers and a high-pressure, drop stitch floor, making them almost impossible to flip over.

While these kayaks are inflatable, they’re NOT toys! The Sea Eagle 380x has a Class IV whitewater rating and can handle open-water and downwind sailing! It’s big enough for two, small enough for one, and capable of holding 750 lbs.

We chose our kayaks to make our guests’ trip comfortable (we even added seats), and because of their stability, allow even the least experienced kayaker (#NeverKayakedBefore) to feel like they’ve been doing it forever.

As a side but important note to kayakers, we HIGHLY SUGGEST that our guests bring rubber boots, gloves, and rain gear to wear in the kayaks as the summer weather in Southeast Alaska can range from temperatures in the low 50s and extraordinarily rainy to 80 degrees and sunny. Since our kayaks are open, there is a better-than-even chance you’ll get at least a little water on you, either from water splashing into the kayak or from rain + the splashing part. While it could be a sunny 70-, 80-, or 90-degree day,  we always say you should prepare for a chilly and damp day just in case.
