 Sea Kayak Rescue only


Kayak Camping 101 :

Curious about sea kayak camping ? This class was designed for you!  This 3 day class takes you out on the ocean. Learn where to go, how to be safe, and have a great fun adventure. This is a great trip for folks new to Alaska, or take your visitors on an awesome sea kayak adventure at a price that will not break the bank. WE provide DRY SUITS at NO cost to you! Prince William Sound can be wet, but you will not care in your complimentary dry suit.
Our classroom is Western Prince William Sound out of Whittier, AK. On day 1 we use a water taxi to get to our camp location. We will set camp on a wonderful beach in a protected cove and then spend the day learning our  paddling skills.  As part of  your training we take a tour along the coast line of the cove. It is common to see  sealions, eagles, sea otters and lots of salmon in July and August. Alaska beaches are not always the most friendly, so you will practice getting in and out of kayaks in different types of conditions. In the evening we cover map reading, tide charts, glacier safety, using VHF radios and loading kayaks for travel. There is also a very pleasant hike to a lake in the evening. 
On day 2 you will load you kayak for a day of travel. This is an opportunity to experience the ocean and do a fjord crossing. We will camp about 10 miles from Whittier. All of our camp locations are in State of Alaska Marine Parks giving usa the convenience of a bathroom, bear box and tent platforms.
Day 3 features an interesting day of changing coast line, huge mountains and water falls as we glide back to Whittier.
