Your adventure starts with a motor coach ride way out of town. Enjoy a speedy and exhilarating 15 minute inflatable boat ride to the Tatoosh Islands.
Upon arrival at the beach your guides will prepare you for your Ketchikan wilderness paddling experience with an informative kayak class and safety talk before assisting you into your double sea kayak. You will gain confidence in your kayak as you paddle up the shoreline toward the Tatoosh Islands. Following your guides away from the beach you'll explore passages in and around this unique and serene island environment. Feel free to stop and take pictures, tune into the guide narrative of the natural and cultural history of the Tongass National Forest, or sit quietly and appreciate the tranquil rainforest setting. Keep an eye out for sea birds, bald eagles, seals, and other marine life. Whales and bears are sometimes spotted in this area too. Don't miss this opportunity to join a small group on this award winning tour!

"Amazing two hours in two man kayak in group of six kayaks. We saw a pod of 4-5 hump back whales. They did pretty well everything in their repertoire- tail slapping, fin waving, breeching and bubble feeding. We were guided by Tim and PJ who looked after us very well.
A wonderful trip that we will never forget"

"Tim and Greg were awesome! We did the Tatoosh Island kayak trip and had a great time. We saw tons of eagles, starfish, a few seals, and a couple of sea otters just to mention a few. The staff were efficient and really down to earth. Even if you have never paddled before this would be a good trip for you. It is not at all strenuous and is a good fit for most fitness levels"
