Looking for stunning views of the Mendenhall Glacier without the crowds? Then the Glacier View Sea Kayak is the perfect tour for you and among the most exclusive Juneau kayaking tours. After meeting your guides, head on over to North Douglas Island where you will launch your kayaks for stunning views of the Mendenhall Glacier, without the gaggle of tour buses you would come across at the Glacier visitor center. Throughout your paddle, you will be in view of stunning glacially carved peaks, and the winding river of ice that is the Mendenhall Glacier. Keep an eye out for wildlife opportunities on this exciting adventure, you are in wild Alaska after all!

The Glacier View Sea Kayak begins with pick up near your cruise docks, before taking a scenic drive across Gastineau Channel to North Douglas Island. Here, you will gear up and hop into tandem kayaks with a partner, to make for one of the most relaxing and beautiful Juneau kayaking tours. You will paddle from here through the Mendenhall Wetlands, where you will have stunning views of Mendenhall glacier as it weaves through the icy peaks around it, a view you cannot get from anywhere else! Porpoises, seals, sea lions, bald eagles, herons, and even whales have been known to make appearances on this portion of the tour, so be sure to tear your eyes away from the glacier on occasion to look a little closer around you. Throughout the tour, your guide will entertain you with knowledge of the area and animals, including stories of Smugglers Cove and any personal experiences they have with local wildlife. The Glacier View Sea Kayak is perfect for kayakers of any ability level, and is sure to delight with beautiful views, great stories, and even a delicious snack at the end!

      Will the trip still operate if it is raining?

      Answer: Because much of SE Alaska is a rainforest, these trips do operate rain or shine. Rain jackets are provided on this trip. If weather conditions are unsafe, the trip will be canceled and we will provide a full refund. This can happen on kayaking trips from time to time and will be typically related to sea or lake conditions, not rain.

      What if our ship is delayed or doesn't make it into port? Refund?

      Answer: It's very rare that a ship is delayed into port, but in those cases we will try our best to work with you to reschedule the tour to a later time. If that is not a possibility or your ship doesn't make it into port, we will of course refund the full cost of the tour.

      What about restroom facilities along the way?

      Answer: You'll have a chance at the kayak base to use the restroom, but after that we will be entering the great outdoors. We recommend all guests follow 'Leave No Trace Principles' and should the need arise, we request packing all trash from the trip including toilet paper. If this is of concern for you, we recommend bringing toilet paper and a ziploc bag for easy packing.

      How many guests are on this tour?

      Answer: There can be up to 12 passengers on this trip, and there is a minimum of 2 guests for the trip to operate. With advanced notice, we can accommodate larger groups on private tours.

      Do I need previous kayaking experience?

      Answer: Nope! This trip is rated as 'Easy' or 'Moderate' and we can accommodate even beginner kayakers. There is a recommended fitness level with the ability to paddle for 6 miles and be able to sit in a kayak for up to 3 hours.
