Auke Bay Guided Kayaking Tour
Join us in Auke Bay for a coastal kayaking adventure featuring wildlife viewing opportunities, island destinations, and incredible ocean and mountain views. Enjoy a 20-minute ride through Alaska’s capital city – our destination is Statter Harbor, approximately 11 miles north of the hustle and bustle of downtown Juneau. After gear outfitting, we’ll coach you in paddling technique and safety procedures on-shore before launching our double kayaks directly from the shop.
In search of the perfect paddle.
As your group of up to 8 guests and 1 guide navigate through the small harbor, you’ll cruise by commercial fishing vessels, sailboats, live-aboard boats, and the occasional private yacht. From there, your guide will select the best route for the day’s tides and weather conditions as your group kayaks down the coast to uninhabited islands. Throughout the summer, it’s common to be joined by jumping salmon and curious harbor seals – as you glide over shallow water, keep your eyes open for starfish and anemones. Look up to the sky as eagles soar overhead, searching for their next meal.
The Auke Bay Sea Kayaking Tour is an active kayaking experience on the outskirts of Juneau suited for novice kayakers, as well as those with experience. Upon your return, enjoy a light snack on the dock or around our camp fire. All kayaking gear provided – rain gear available upon request at no additional charge.
