Join us for a paddle in the Tongass National Forest. Your adventure starts with a van ride to the north end of Ketchikan to beautiful Clover Pass. You will be welcomed and led down to our waterfront facility and introduced to your tandem kayak and get a safety briefing from your guide.
You'll quickly gain confidence as you paddle to Eagle Island. The protected waters of Clover Pass provide us with the opportunity to really enjoy the tranquil setting of the Tongass National Forest. Along the paddle you will learn about the natural and cultural history of the area while keeping a keen eye out for bald eagles and their nests, seals, jumping salmon, and - when the tide is right - sea stars.
No experience necessary in double Kayaks

"My family and I (six of us) had a fantastic excursion! What started out as rainy cleared up and after a choppy Zodiac ride with Captain Tim, the sun broke out! Saw several jellies and star fish in the water and numerous eagles. Shout out to Dani and Captain Tim for their hospitality, guidance, and pleasant demeanor. Great pictures from Captain Tim. Highly recommend taking this excursion. Can't go wrong with Southeast Exposure Outdoor Adventure Center."

"Went on the Eagle Island kayak trip with a group of friends and had a fabulous time. Our guide was Greg and he was excellent. He was very considerate and patient with our less experienced kayakers, and he was also fun and had a good sense of humor. The outfit seemed well equipped with great gear and equipment, and everything seemed very safe and well organized. The amount of kayaking was just right and we never felt pushed to do more than we wanted to. Had great sightings of sea lions and eagles, and the scenery was beautiful. Highly recommend."

"This kayaking adventure was so perfect. We had never kayaked before but our guide, Billy, was so knowledgeable and supportive. He got us all geared up and safely onto the kayaks. He asked each of us our names and we had great interaction all along the journey. He knew so much about the wildlife and the history. We saw bald eagles, starfish in huge clusters, seals and such beautiful scenery. Thank you, Billy, for a truly memorable experience."
