Experience the pristine beauty of North Douglas Island and views of the Mendenhall Glacier during this kayaking adventure.

A narrated drive from the pier brings you to North Douglas Island where your kayak awaits. Upon arrival, you'll be outfitted in life jackets and raingear and your experienced guide will teach you about paddling techniques. Once everyone is ready to go, you will board your two-person kayak with a new friend or traveling companion and set-off on an unforgettable journey.

Your stable, yet nimble kayak, will allow you to silently approach any wildlife in the area and give you a sense of how the famed Aleut Indians traveled the coastal waterways of Alaska in search of pelts for the Russian fur trading companies. Led in groups of five to six kayaks, you will travel to such places as the Mendenhall Wetlands where you may have the opportunity to view the Mendenhall Glacier from an ocean explorer's point of view. Your guide will explain the significance of places such as Smugglers Cove, the history of the surrounding area and help identify local flora and fauna. Keep a watchful eye out as you may see porpoise, seals, sea lions, eagles, herons, or even whales along the way.

After approximately 1 1/2 - 2 hours of paddling, you will find yourself back at the starting point where you will turn in your gear and enjoy a light snack before transferring back to the cruise ship pier.
