Searching for Ketchikan excursions that take you away from the cruise ship crowds? Head to where the locals spend their time in this Eagle Island Kayak tour! Enjoy a scenic paddle with amazing wildlife viewing opportunities in the gorgeous Clover Pass. This area is at the North end of Ketchikan, so you can experience a quiet, serene setting as you kayak to Eagle Island along the shorelines of the Tongass National Forest. The experienced guides will teach you about the natural and cultural history of this beautiful area that offers the warmest weather in all of Alaska. The Eagle Island Kayak is among the top budget-friendly Ketchikan excursions for wildlife viewing paired with a fun adventure!
Your tour begins with a pickup in town and a van ride to the waterfront facility. There, the friendly guides will introduce you to your tandem kayak and brief you on the safety requirements as you suit up in the provided gear. Novice kayakers will quickly gain confidence paddling in the calm waters of Clover Pass, which is protected from any open ocean swells. Furthermore, have your cameras ready as you’re likely to come across seals, jumping salmon, sea stars, and bald eagles! Don’t worry if it’s gray skies while you’re here, as you’ll be suited up in rain gear and the misty rain actually enhances wildlife viewing opportunities! After about two hours of paddling on the Eagle Island Kayak, your tour concludes with a drive back to town. You’re likely to leave with fond memories of Ketchikan and hopefully lots of pictures on your camera!
This tour is certainly one of our most budget-friendly Ketchikan excursions. For another low-cost adventure, check out the Rainforest Canoe & Nature Trail!
