Paddle Juneau – Urban Kayaking Experience
Join us at Overstreet Park, at the base of Juneau’s lifesize whale sculpture for a 1.5 hour guided sea kayaking experience. Enjoy cityscape views of Juneau’s capitol city while kayaking along the shores of the Gastineau Channel – we’ll share historical highlights of Alaska’s capitol city as we keep our eyes open for salmon swimming up Gold Creek and eagles soaring above.
In search of the perfect paddle.
Start your adventure with a 1-mile jaunt from the cruise ship terminal Area in downtown Juneau to our launch point at Overstreet Park. Head north and allow 25 – 30 minutes for this walk, as you’ll definitely want to stop and enjoy the mountain and water views. After crossing Gold Creek, take a left onto the Juneau Seawalk for the final leg of your urban hike. Your destination is the lifesize whale statue near the Juneau/Douglas Bridge.

Meet your guide at Whale Park! Otherwise known as Mayor Bill Overstreet Park, this city space is easily accessed from downtown Juneau and features a lifesize humpback whale sculpture “breaching” from an impressive fountain. Once our group is assembled, we’ll outfit you in kayaking gear and provide a thorough paddling and safety orientation.
We’ll launch our double kayaks into Gastineau Channel and begin our coastal kayaking tour. As our group navigates down the Channel, we’ll share highlights from Juneau’s history and diverse ecosystems, while enjoying scenic mountain and cityscape views.
Our group will return to Whale Park. Be sure to get pictures beneath the towering whale.
