Your Orcas Cove Sea Kayaking experience begins right from downtown near the cruise ship dock for your 3-hour adventure on the water. Climb aboard your charter vessel for your journey away from the cruise ship crowds to Orcas Cove. Along the way, you'll be treated to stunning views of Ketchikan's waterfront as well as the surrounding landscapes. Upon arriving at the cove, you'll transfer to the 57' awaiting catamaran, where you will be geared up and briefed on kayaking safety from your experienced local and professional guides. From here with your guide on hand to help, you'll load up into tandem kayaks to begin your paddle through the gorgeous area. Coast closely along the shoreline looking for jellyfish, starfish, seals and other wildlife, while staying close to your guide as they give you detailed information about these native animals and plants. There's even the potential to spot Sitka black tail deer, Bald Eagles, humpbacks, and bears in this remote area!
As you continue along, your Orcas Cove Sea Kayaking experience will venture into hidden coves, circumnavigate islands, and allow you plenty of paddling time to really get to know the coastal ecosystem. When you've finished your paddle, you'll return to the catamaran for a real treat on this Ketchikan tour. Enjoy a spread of local smoked salmon, hummus & crackers, hot beverages, and local Alaskan brews for those over the age of 21. After you've had your fill, you'll load back into your charter boat and head back to Ketchikan. And at just 3-hours, you'll end the day with plenty of time to explore more of Ketchikan!
