Instead of going to the Sitka National Historic Park Visitors Center, you will paddle through mazes of reef and kelp forest – areas accessible only by kayak – to look for colorful marine life visible below, including crab, sea stars, anemones, and sea urchins. On the surface, you might see harbor seals, sea otters, sea lions, and bald eagles. The tour begins with a thorough orientation and safety demonstration, and ends at one of the many islands. A passenger boat picks us up and transports us back to Sitka. No experience is necessary. The guides are highly trained and safety-conscious. They teach us how to paddle, and double kayaks are used for added safety. If you opt for kayaking, you are committed “rain or shine.” Kayakers will have an opportunity to go to the visitor center tomorrow during their free afternoon. (Maximum weight is 275 pounds. Space on this tour is limited. Ask about availability before registering.)
