Day Trips

Exploring the Wild Coast of Sitka Sound

Guided Experiences

Sitka Sound offers one of the most varied kayaking environments on earth. Temperate rainforest tumbles down from sheer and stunning peaks to vanish into some of the most transparent water in the seven seas.  

Our passion, and profession is to provide exclusive, immersive kayaking experiences in  this piece of paradise. ‘Exclusive’ means for you and your group. We will never add  other people to your tour. Whether you would like a local day kayak-tour of any length  up to 6 hours or a water taxi shuttle to support exploration of a more remote site, rest assured, we  have the expertise, connections and experience to make it happen. 

Book Your Adventure

We call it the Wild Coast because it is, and Sitka is the heart of it. There are no roads to get here, and before air travel, the road was the water. For us, it still is. Come with us and explore the pristine and abundant life found in the unparalleled beauty of this place, where the land, sea, and sky join.  

Guided Day Trips

Go with Sitka’s most experienced sea kayak guide team and get more out of your time! We can show you places you will likely miss and provide information on everything from edible plants to geographic detail and cultural history! This service is available to all rental tours on request when a guide is available.

Water Taxi Pick-up Service

Hot springs anyone?

For those looking to go a step or three deeper into the wilds, we can provide a shuttle service to a more distant location from which you can paddle back to Sitka or be picked up again. Sites you may visit include Goddard Hot Springs, the Tiegud Islands, Redoubt Falls, ancient canoe-landing sites, and “The Black Pass.”  

*These exceptional tours are facilitated by one of three local boat operators whose knowledge and experience of local landings, tides, and conditions are comparable to our standard of quality. They operate boats kept in top condition and are the only operators we work with. Booking is dependent on operator availability. Every tour is unique. 

Come explore with us a level of immersion and support that is unique to the region.

Safety is my primary concern as your trip organizer and leader. Facilitating your experience so that you return to your home with a lifetimes worth of memories that will continue to shine as clear as the Alaskan waters is the goal, and it is my duty and privilege to assure that this happens.
