Kayak among glaciers and whales with the experts on this one-of-a-kind adventure through pristine Glacier Bay
If you only have one shot at visiting Alaska, this is the trip for you! Paddle sea kayaks past whales at Point Adolphus, and head to panoramic Glacier Bay National Park for a spectacular overnight kayaking expedition among icebergs and sprawling tidewater glaciers.

Kayak among glaciers and whales with the experts on this one-of-a-kind adventure through pristine Glacier Bay

Few places are as hauntingly beautiful as Southeast Alaska. One of the world’s last wilderness frontiers is home to Glacier Bay National Park, the densest convergence of tidewater glaciers in the world. Hearing the thunderous sound of calving glaciers from your kayak and the cavernous breathing of humpback whales, you can’t help but marvel at the symphony before you. We have pioneered kayaking expeditions here since 1972. Not only are one of only two companies to be issued rare permits to paddle the bay, but our seasoned, professional guides are true “salty dogs”—the best of the best!

Your adventure centers around the rustic bush town of Gustavus, home to writers, artists, and conservationists. Venture out for two three-day kayak excursions and camp along isolated, pristine beaches. Kayak around Point Adolphus, the world renowned feeding ground of the humpback whales and see porpoises, sea lions, and bald eagles. Paddle in the remote upper west arm of Glacier Bay at a leisurely pace, taking in massive glaciers, majestic peaks, and icebergs, and stop along the shores to see wildflowers and waterfalls. See nature in its rawest form on this MTS-exclusive.
