This trip provides jaw-dropping views of the mountains that surround the bay as well as many opportunities to see wildlife along the way.

Your day trip will allow for some relaxing down-time on a secluded beach where you can sit back and soak in the incredible scenery, or you may opt for a short hike to a beautiful 90-foot waterfall or Fort McGilvray an historic WWII fort that is a famous landmark in the area.

This trip offers an unparalleled opportunity to explore the magnificent coastlines between Lowell Point and Caines Head as well as an unforgettable experience wandering through the beautiful coastal rain-forest including the ‘ghost forest’ that is a result of the 1964 earthquake that struck the region around Tonsina Point.

Wildlife that is often seen on this day trip includes sea otters and sea lions, harbor seals and porpoises, bald eagles, puffins and many other sea birds.

Terms & Policies

Trips run rain or shine! This is a coastal rainforest and thus there is a lot of rainy days. Weather cancellations are rare and made only when conditions are considered unsafe for paddling. Please remember that these are outdoor activities, and Mother Nature is always the one in charge.

Trips may be delayed or cancelled due to rough seas or strong winds. It is recommend that you leave extra days both before and after your scheduled trip in case the weather does not cooperate.

If your trip has a delayed start time or an early pick-up time due to weather, but the trip still runs on the dates planned, there will be no refund or pro-rated cost. Trips will not be cancelled solely on account of rain, so please be prepared for that.

For all tours without a water taxi (Resurrection Bay Half Day Tours and Caines Head Day Trips), guests will receive a full refund for cancellations made more than 1 week prior to your trip date. Within 1 week, your trip fees are nonrefundable.

If you decide to cancel your trip with us, please consider transferring your payment to a gift card. That way you can join us in the future, whether it’s this summer or a future season, providing an easy way to postpone your vacation plans while continuing to support our small, locally-owned business.

Travel insurance is strongly suggested for all guests, to ensure protection against cancellation penalties and many other unforeseeable circumstances, such as an emergency medical evacuation. The weather in Alaska can sometimes delay trips for a couple of days, and it’s worth being financially covered for any changes to your itinerary.

*Full refunds include: trip fees, add ons, and taxes & fees, minus $10 per person booking fees for all half & full day trips & $25 per person booking fees for multi-day trips*
