Private Chilkoot Lake Wildlife Kayak Tour From Skagway

Offer Image
Enjoy the kayaking adventure of a lifetime with this private wildlife kayaking tour at Chilkoot Lake. Get up close to many animal such as bald eagles, brown bears, sockeye salmon, and much more.

The excitement begins as you board a catamaran ferry for a scenic ride through the Lynn Canal connecting Skagway and Haines. Along the way your guide will share the natural history of the inner water passageway while you keep an eye out for humpback whales, harbor seals, and bald eagles.

Once in Haines you will take a seaside drive to Chilkoot Lake State Park where you will arrive at the lake and enter your sea kayak. New to kayaking? Not a problem! Your experienced guide will outfit you with the proper gear, show you the basics, and have you paddling like a pro in no time.

Savor the stillness as you glide across the pristine lake, noting the waterfalls cascading off the lush, green forested cliffs. Each month brings something new for visitors to the lake, from wildflowers, bald eagles and sockeye salmon (June and July) to brown bears that come to the water's edge to feed (August and September). Your guide will do his best to get you up close and personal to the wildlife in a safe manner for both you and the animals.

After kayaking you will take a ride back into town and the ferry for your return trip back to port. A delicious lunch of turkey sandwiches, fruit, cookies and bottled water will be available during your 6.5 hour journey. Vegan and vegetarian options are available (an avocado and cheese or a hummus, onion and spinach sandwich) and every option can be made gluten-free. Breakaway from the Skagway crowds for some kayaking in a true naturalist's paradise when you book this private tour today.
