Roundtrip transportation from Downtown Cruise docks & the new Dock at Ward Cove. We drive north of downtown Ketchikan to the Clover Pass Resort featuring a much quieter, more local vibe and most days calmer waters and dryer  weather. You’ll paddle with us on the protected ocean waterways of Clover Pass, circumnavigating 2 to 3 small islands featuring an immense array of inter-tidal life, a bald eagles nest, resident seals and sea lions and the potential to encounter many types of migratory birds, Sitka deer, Pacific porpoises, humpback whales and Orcas as well. With a maximum of 6 guests to a guide our kayak tours are very intimate and educational. Taking such small groups allows us the benefit of spending more time on the water than other tours and no need to make you feel rushed through any part of your experience. What really sets us apart though are our guides. Our crew features local guides and professional educators with experience as commercial Alaskan salmon fishermen, commercial winter dive fisheries in Southeast Alaska, experience guiding dog sled tours and working many seasonal guiding positions across the country. The experience and personalities of our guides bring so much more depth to your experience with us than you’ll find on tours led by fresh summer seasonals. No rookies on this crew.

Smoked salmon, salmon dip and other snacks (including vegan options), hot and cold beverages and a great view are awaiting you when we return to our scenic marina.


  • Please dress for the temperatures on the day of your trip. The best advice for gearing up for any excursion along your cruise is to bring layers. We recommend you wear clothing that would be appropriate for outdoor hiking, and shoes that will fit comfortably inside the space of a kayak. Dry bags are also provided for cameras and incidental items.
  • You must sign a liability release waiver before taking a kayak tour.
  • Sizing: Anyone with a seated waistline over 54″ would not be a good fit for the kayak cockpits.
