Hop in a tandem kayak and paddle through the beauty of wild Alaska, on the exclusive Inside Passage Kayak, the best shore tour Skagway offers to see the Lynn Canal up close and personal. From the quaint but stunning town of Haines, you will kayak along the stunning shores of the Inside Passage, for opportunities to see everything from hanging glaciers in the distance, to the local wildlife that calls the Lynn Canal home. Ending with a picnic lunch on a private beach, this is the perfect shore tour Skagway has for exploring the Lynn canal and seeing what Wild Alaska has to offer!

Start your Inside Passage Kayak when you meet your guides and hop on the Fast Ferry to Haines, a beautiful zip through the northernmost part of the Lynn Canal. From here, the launch beach is just a 5 minute walk from the dock, where your guide will walk you through everything you need to know about kayaking and the area. Once you begin your paddle, you will have the opportunity to experience the stunning beauty of the water and landscape around you, but don't forget to keep your eyes out for wildlife: eagles, seals, sea lions, Dall porpoises, and humpback whales have all been spotted on this tour previously.
Throughout the tour, your guide will spend their time filling you in on Southeast Alaska, the geography, and the wildlife that make the area so special. The guides are a wealth of knowledge, so don't be afraid to ask questions, this one of the best shore tours Skagway has for learning all about the area and what makes it tick! Once you arrive back to land, you will be treated to a picnic feast on your private launch beach. And don't forget, your Inside Passage Kayak ends with the same gorgeous Fast Ferry ride that got you to Haines in the first place, so keep your cameras ready!
