Join professional sea kayak guides on Chilkoot Lake, home to Pacific salmon, bald eagles, waterfowl and brown bears.
Your tour begins with a scenic drive to Chilkoot Lake. En route, you'll see downtown Haines and historic Fort William H. Seward -- one of the first U.S. Army outposts in Alaska.
At Chilkoot Lake, gear up and listen to an introduction to kayaking. No previous experience is necessary, and expert guides make everyone feel at ease in the comfortable kayaks.
The lake is home to all five species of Pacific salmon, numerous bald eagles, waterfowl, and brown bears. In addition to the thrill of kayaking in the midst of towering mountains, hanging glaciers and spectacular scenery, you may be treated to outstanding bear viewing from your stable and silent kayak.
Before returning to the ship, you'll enjoy a deli-style lunch and free time to relax and enjoy the lush environment.
