This Trip Qualifies for Optional Travel Insurance
In consideration of the uncertainty surrounding travel during the COVID-19 pandemic, we've found a 3rd party travel insurance that covers many COVID related concerns. At checkout, you can choose a Refundable Booking to be covered by this insurance for a fee. Non-Refundable bookings are still covered under our standard cancellation policy.
Take our well appointed jet boat over to the wildlife-rich eastern shore of Resurrection Bay to search for and kayak among marine mammals, puffins and bald eagles
On this trip, we check out the coastline around Fox Island at the head of Resurrection Bay, keeping our eyes open for whales, sea lions, porpoise, and other marine mammals. When we arrive at our paddling destination, we have roughly 2 hours on the water to enjoy some of Alaska's most stunning coastline, our Emerald Coast, from the intimate perspective that only comes from the seat of a kayak.
We offer this trip early in the season to take advantage of the close proximity of whales typical of this time of year. In early May, the bait fish and plankton that make up the whale's diet are schooling in Resurrection Bay, and that usually means we see these beautiful giants very frequently. As the summer ripens and June comes along, the food sources move further out to sea, and with them go the whales, requiring a longer boat ride and a larger search area.
This trip is super cool — we love being able to take advantage of the seasonal conditions to try and facilitate incredibly memorable wildlife encounters, and it's one of the few trips we offer that explores the Eastern side of the Bay.
Please Note: This is an early-season trip, so be prepared for chilly weather and misty days! We reserve the right to cancel this trip in the event of serious weather or very rough seas.
