Experience the serenity and beauty of the Alaskan wilderness as you explore secluded coves and rainforest-clad islands by boat and then sea kayak bountiful Alaskan waters on the four-hour Orcas Cove Kayak tour! Cruise along Ketchikan Creek to Saxman Totem Park and Mountain Point on the way out to Orcas Cove, where you’ll move from boat to sea kayak for a leisurely paddle along the shoreline with the possibility of spotting humpback whales, bald eagles, porpoises, seals, and sea lions, as well as deer, mink, river otters, and possibly even black bears! Slow down to enjoy a peaceful paddle, accompanied by the sounds of birds singing in the rainforest and the salty smell of the delicate intertidal ecosystem. Many travelers say this is one of the best Ketchikan excursions for the whole family, adding that one highlight is the delicious smoked silver salmon picnic served with hot drinks or a complimentary Alaskan beer for those of age. You will enjoy this treat aboard a floating Orcas Cove base at the conclusion of the sea kayak adventure! One of the top Ketchikan excursions for nature-lovers, the Orcas Cove adventure puts you up close and personal with scenic Alaskan wilderness.
