Day by Day Sample Itinerary

Day 1 - Meet at the shop at around 9:00 a.m. for an introductory lesson on sea kayaking. From there we go down to the sailboat and meet the captain and cook. Once aboard the yacht the captain will assign each person or couple their private birth and introduce everyone to the features and comforts available aboard the sailing craft. The mothership will depart from the dock around noon. The first afternoon is spent at Shoup Glacier State Park. We get into the kayaks and paddle up a fjord to where a pretty glacier comes down to the water. . There is also great hiking opportunities here. Returning to the charter boat we can relax on deck for the cruise to our nights anchor in Sawmill Bay.
(Lunch) (Dinner)

Day 2 - Wake up to a hot breakfast and a scenic cruise to Glacier Island for a paddle with the sea lions. We will each lunch on board the charter boat and cruise to Heather Bay. Here we will set anchor and paddle among the ice bergs. Explore the floating ice of Prince William Sound's largest tide water glacier, the Columbia Glacier. There are commonly seals, sea otters, and an impressive array of seabirds in Heather Bay. A relaxing evening in Emerald Cove is a great way to finish the day.
