Paddle With Humpback Whales On This One-Of-A-Kind Kayak Tour In Alaska
Alaska’s marine wildlife is an incredible thing to witness and experience, and what could be a better way to do so than on a whale kayak tour? If you’re visiting Juneau, get up close and personal with Alaska’s wildlife on an incredible kayak excursion where you can see whales and glaciers while enjoying Alaska’s wilderness!
Juneau, Alaska has many sights to see, and as the city is only accessible by plane or boat, many of these incredible sights are in and around the water.
Kayaking is a popular pastime in the area, as it allows you to get out and experience Alaska's marine life first-hand. If you're not familiar with the area, going on a guided tour allows you to sit back while someone else shows you the best to see!
Alaska Travel Adventures offers many different types of tours out of Juneau.
One of the most popular ones is the Glacier View Sea Kayaking Tour. This fun tour takes you to Mendenhall Glacier where you'll have the opportunity to see that ancient ice up close!
You'll be kayaking just off of North Douglas Island, where the marine mammal life is abundant. You will most likely run into whales!
The humpback whale is a popular animal off the coast of Alaska. These incredible whales average about 50 feet long, which is impressive when they're breaching right in front of you!
The humpback whales eat over 5,000 pounds of fish and plankton each day!
If you're lucky, you'll be able to get close to a whale surfacing to eat during his twice daily meals. They do need to surface to breathe, so you may see them when they pop up for air!
If you're lucky, humpback whales won't be the only awe-inspiring whale you'll see during your tour.
Orca whales, or more commonly known as killer whales, frequent the area. They travel in pods so if you do see one, you'll probably see a couple of them!
You won't just see whales on this amazing adventure!
While you cruise through the Mendenhall Wetlands, expect to see all manner of birds, including the awesome bald eagle. They will most likely be hunting for fish nearby!
You can book this incredible adventure with Alaska Travel Adventures. During the tour, they also offer an "Alaskan" snack of salmon spread, reindeer sausage, and cheese and crackers!
The tour offers multiple departures daily, and runs May through September. It's three and a half hours long, and costs $109.00 per adult ticket, and $82.00 for a child's ticket. They are open seven days a week through the summer!
