This is a terrific trip for those wanting an introduction to sea kayaking. Guests will start the trip with basic kayak instruction in the harbor. From there, the group will paddle a three-mile loop from Whittier to see the Black-Legged Kittiwake Rookery, as well as scenic waterfalls and intimate coves. This trip is the perfect amount of light exercise and adventure, and well-suited for groups and families.
Enjoy waterfalls, hidden coves, glacial views and a short hike on this trip. Basic kayak instruction in the harbor and a lunch will be provided. This trip offers a longer and more strenuous paddle than the Kittiwake route (listed above).
Start the day with a charter boat ride from Whittier to a beach near the head of Blackstone Bay. With expert guides, guests will have the opportunity to paddle in the tidewater glacier areas of Blackstone Bay while learning about its natural history. The sights and sounds of the actively calving glaciers from the unique viewpoint of ocean kayaks will be the highlight of the trip. At the end of the paddling day, guests will return by charter boat back to Whittier.
Please Note: Guests must be age 10 & up. All guests under the age of 18 must paddle with an adult in a tandem kayak. Due to the physical restrictions of the cockpit size of kayaks, the tallest individuals that can be accommodated are 6’5” tall. Safe flotation limitations of the kayaks and life jackets require that the maximum weight of a guest should not exceed 250 pounds, and that the combined weight of any two paddlers in a tandem kayak should not exceed 450 pounds.
