This multiday trip is designed for those who love to paddle and want to explore the dynamic islands and coastline of the bay.
The harding gateway is where the vast Gulf of Alaska meets the nutrient rich waters of Resurrection Bay. This area is a biologist’s dream, teeming with wildlife, and creating the best opportunity to paddle close to whales, sea lions, otters, and puffins.
Adding to this abundance of wildlife is one of the most beautiful and rugged coastlines in all of Alaska. A major fault runs the length of the shore and out to the fjords, helping create impressive upwellings of quartz, greywacke, basalt and granite. Paddling through sea caves, between rock islands, and around sea pinnacles we get an intimate exposure to this amazing cape.
Paddlers should have some experience and be ready for moderate sea conditions as the Gulf of Alaska is rarely calm. Due to the rugged coastline we will be paddling by, landing options are limited and paddlers should be able to be in a kayak for 3-4 hours between breaks.
Included in Price: Kayaking Equipment, Tents, Meals, Water Taxi Transfers, Guide Services, Permits and Park User Fees. Taxes and gratuity are additional.
(For savvy travelers looking for a more affordable multi-day trip, we also offer a guided rental option, where you provide and prepare your own meals. Please contact us for more information and pricing).
