Guided Kayaking with Whales In Gustavus

Guided Kayaking with the Whales Location: Icy Strait, Point Adolphus Duration: Typically leave Gustavus dock at 9:00am, returning to dock between 3:00 – 4:15pm Paddle Distance: 4-8 miles Highlights: Paddling sea kayaks, photography, whale watching, lunch We start our trip in the morning with a short boat ride across Icy Strait to Point Adolphus. The ocean around Point Adolphus is a meeting place of currents flowing around Chichagof Island into the Inside Passage. This nutrient rich confluence feeds an abundance of marine life from tiny barnacles to giant whales. Otters, seals, porpoise, sea lions and whales swim along the point in noisy groups. Summer is the time for them to stock up on the nutrients that will carry them through the long winter. We respect them and do not crowd them; our greatest pleasure is to share these creatures’ space without disrupting their lives. Our Whales! day trip includes a kayaking orientation on the beach at Point Adolphus in the morning by one of our highly trained guides. We provide snacks throughout the day and a full lunch including smoked salmon or halibut, fresh fruits and vegetables, plus homemade desserts. Included in the trip price is the round-trip charter boat transportation between Gustavus and Point Adolphus, all kayaking and safety equipment, rain gear, rubber boots, dry bags, lunch and ground transportation in Gustavus.
