The daily routine begins with a hot breakfast prepared by the chef. After breakfast the group will gear up for a day of activities. Generally, we kayak in the mornings and return to the boat for lunch. Each afternoon will be spent paddling, hiking, or cruising and enjoying the views. Upon returning to the yacht we will have a chance to shower and enjoy horsd'oeuvres and a drink before dinner. Our cook will prepare a mouth watering meal typically consisting of fresh Alaskan fish or any other creative alternative desired. Our anchors are always nice and protected offering a good nights sleep.

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 boat to meet the captain and cook. We will paddle Shoup Glacier in the afternoon. Anchor for the night in Sawmill Bay state Park
(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 Disk Island on the north end of Knight Island.  This is a long day of cruising but can offer the chance to see Harbor or Dall Porpoise.
