Kayaking Ketchikan along the rainforest shorelines of Knudson Cove offers serene beauty, incredible wildlife viewing opportunities, and the chance to experience Ketchikan Alaska like a true local! The Ketchikan Kayak Eco Tour takes you on a slow-paced journey in the protected ocean waterways of beautiful Clover Pass. You will navigate around dispersed islands with enthusiastic and experienced local guides in a small-group setting away from the cruise ship crowds. Furthermore, this excursion is not offered by the cruise lines and limits each group size, ensuring a quality experience for everyone while kayaking Ketchikan. Additionally, the calm waters allow you to enjoy a relaxed paddle along the lush temperate rainforest, which is home to a wide variety of diverse wildlife. Have your cameras ready and your eyes peeled for bald eagles, Pacific porpoises, sea lions and even whales!
This educational and fun Ketchikan Kayak Eco Tour begins with a convenient pickup in town. Once you arrive at the marina, suit up in the provided gear as the guides teach the basics of paddling. These stable tandem kayaks make this tour enjoyable for novice and experienced kayakers alike. Spend just over two hours kayaking Ketchikan and exploring this stunning area of the Inside Passage, where eagles and migratory birds, Sitka deer, and marine life are known to make frequent appearances. After your time on the water, you’ll head to the beach for a picnic-style snack of smoked salmon before going back to town. The Ketchikan Kayak Eco Tour is an excellent choice for those looking to experience the incredible beauty and wildlife of Ketchikan in a fun paddle adventure.
