An exclusive private tour, explore the uninhabited Channel Islands by stunning kayak paddle and privately guided land exploration, quietly taking in the grandeur of the scenery and observing an abundance of wildlife (including whales!) on the Private Wildlife Charter & Kayak, one of the best Juneau shore excursions for a true Alaskan eco-adventure. As your knowledgeable guide leads your group on a paddle through the Channel Islands State Marine Park, just a short distance from Juneau, you will experience temperate rainforest and stunning snow-capped peaks, while accompanied by the amazing wildlife that calls this refuge home, including humpback whales, porpoises, orcas, sea lions, harbor seals, and bald eagles soaring overhead. Gliding quietly in a sea kayak with just your small group of six or fewer allows for a remarkable opportunity to experience the wonders of nature up-close in a pristine wilderness environment while customizing the tour to your group’s speed and desires. To truly experience wild Alaska in a custom, intimate way, the Private Wildlife Charter & Kayak is among the Juneau shore excursions you surely won’t want to miss.


As with other Juneau shore excursions, your eco-adventure begins with pick-up right at the cruise docks and transportation to the kayak base. Here you’ll be fitted with kayaking gear and receive safety instructions before boarding a water taxi for a stunning ride along the Inside Passage out to Channel Islands State Marine Park, with wildlife viewing opportunities beginning right from the start. From here, it’s into the sea kayaks for 2.5+ hours of paddling in the pristine Marine Park, including time for exploring uninhabited beaches and lush rainforest by foot. After your time in the Kayaks, you will even be treated to a Gourmet Lunch with the option to explore the hammock base, tide pools, and more! As a private tour, everything about your experience on the Channel Islands is customizable! The Private Wildlife Charter & Kayak is a family-friendly eco-adventure suitable for all guests 8 and older, with no previous kayaking experience required. It’s sure to be an outing you won’t forget! Note: As it’s of the most exclusive Juneau shore excursions, though, this trip has very limited spaces, so book early to guarantee your spot! Note: Price per person varies depending on group size. See the Additional Information tab for pricing specifics.

 

For stunning whale watching opportunities that don’t require a paddle, you might consider the Whale Watching & Mendenhall Glacier Tour. Or, to learn more about why Juneau is perfect for Whale Watching, check out this article on Juneau Whale Watching, part of our Nature & History series.

    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 and pants are provided on this trip. If weather conditions are unsafe, the trip will be canceled and we will provide a full refund.

    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.

    How many guests are on this tour?

    Answer: This private tour allows for parties of 2-6

    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.

    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 4 miles and to be seated in a kayak for about 2 hours.

    Are we guaranteed to see whales?

    Answer: We don't guarantee whale sightings on this tour. Because this is wild Alaska and you will be traveling by kayak, we cannot guarantee sightings.
