What to expect
Upon arrival, your experienced, friendly guide will help you with life jackets and rain gear before teaching you kayaking techniques. Then you will board the two-person kayaks with either a traveling companion or new friend for your Alaska nature adventure. The stable yet nimble kayaks allow you to silently approach wildlife in the area, including porpoise, seals, sea lions, eagles, herons, or even whales. You will explore the Mendenhall Wetlands where you may have the opportunity to view the spectacular Mendenhall Glacier from an ocean explorer’s point of view. The view of the glacier is from six miles away, so you'll be able to see how the massive river of ice winds through the mountain peaks for miles. This spectacular view can only be seen from this vantage point (or from the air) as long as the weather cooperates (low-hanging clouds or thick fog obscures the view). Along the way, your guide will entertain you with stories about Smugglers Cove, the history of the surrounding area, and point out local flora and fauna. Back ashore, you will enjoy a tasty Alaska style snack before the journey back to the pier.

Great View, Lots of Bald Eagles!
Jul. 2019
Our tour guide did an amazing job! It was an informational tour and we saw a lot of beautiful sights, however with the amount of fires they were having we were unable to get a good view of the Glacier due to the smoke. Still a great experience!

Misty Morning Kayak
Sep. 2019 • Solo
Received a warm welcome and big smile from the moment of arrival. Andre was our guide. He was fun, experienced, friendly and kind. I felt safe & confident in his care. We could hear his strong clear voice and guided instruction easily! And...What an adventure. We had a fog filled mist lift and expose a gorgeous sun beaming on the Glacier right in front of our eyes! The calm water was so peaceful. We explored all along the coastline and found beauty & adventure! Our entire group had a great time. We were very lucky to have such an amazing guide. Andre was very knowledgable and an Alaskan born local. He shared fun stories & vast information about the ecosystem, land, people & culture. Glacial, Ocean, mountains, land, plants and sea life. We saw so many birds, jellyfish, Flounders, Salmon, Seals, and a whole row of singing- splashing- sunbathing Sea Lions. It was fantastic! Thanks Andre and Alaska Travel Adventures!

Great scenery , great animals and an easy paddle
Booked as an excursion from Princess Cruises. I was a little worried this could be difficult for me but it was not. The guide , Andre , was in formative and very skille at the end when you are having your snake. So bring cash or a credit card.

Cruise Day Tour
Had a great time paddling with a view of Mendenhall Glacier. Our guide Ben was very informative and kept us all safe.
We saw a raft of Sea Lions, lots of seals and a couple of bald eagles. The seals and sea lions came quite close. Great tour. Recommended.

Fun Kayak, great scenery, lots of wildlife
Sep. 2019 • Couples
Our tour guide, Ben, was so informative and he made our tour so much fun! He was very well educated on the local wildlife and we really enjoyed the history of Alaska, the glaciers, and the local area. Our favorites were the sea lions and of course the bald eagles! The level of exertion is about a 4 out of 10. We definitely recommend this for someone wanting an adventurous encounter with Alaska and nature.

Kayaking within a couple miles of the Glacier
Sep. 2019 • Family
Ben did a great job of informing and guiding us around. We saw eagles, salmon, sea lions and seals. I thought we would be closer to the Glacier but apparently that is not possible. The day was excellent and the tour guide informative. Good workout as well

Great Kayak Day
Aug. 2019
The sun was shining, waters were calm & Andre sang to us! It was a great day out at sea. Andre was a great guide. He knew his way around, the kayak, safety, wildlife & Alaska. He shared many things about Alaska not known to visitors, pointed out the wildlife & glaciers. And again, he sang to us. A great rip!

Wonderful sea kayaking adventure to view the Mendenhall Glacier
Aug. 2019
We had a wonderful day sea kayaking to view the beautiful Mendenhall Glacier. Andre was our tour guide and we were trained well in safety and set up to be successful at paddling and guiding our 2 man kayaks around the lake area. The water was very calm. We saw dozens of bald eagles. Andre told us a lot of facts about the wildlife and about Alaska. It was really fun. The morning started out very rainy, but we knew that Alaska can be rainy and we had some nice long rain ponchos with us. We dressed warmly and put on our rain jackets and had a great time.
