Shoup Glacier Kayak

The Shoup Glacier Day tour offers an intimate experience at one of Alaska's beautiful tidewater glaciers. Climb aboard our motor boat for a taxi ride to Shoup Bay where we will begin this scenic journey. Over the course of the day we will paddle past floating ice, past a nesting colony of Black-Legged Kittiwakes, and up to the face of the glacier. Enjoy a short walk on the beach and a lunch spot with a colorful glacier view (you bring your own lunch). At the end of the paddle we will be picked up by the motorboat for the ride back to Valdez.
