Above & Beyond Alaska, LLC is an employee-owned guiding company based in Juneau, which is nestled below the Coast Mountains and beside the ocean in the heart of Southeast Alaska’s temperate rain forest . We have been exploring the Tongass National Forest, glaciers of the Juneau Icefield, and waters of Alaska’s inside passage for over 25 years and guiding others since 2002. ABAK offers an opportunity to explore any of the environments found around Juneau by kayak, foot, boat, plane, or helicopter. Our goal is to provide a complete Alaskan wilderness experience by sharing with our clients our passion, technical know-how, and natural history knowledge.
After spending a decade working for other guiding companies in the area, majority owners Becky and Sean Janes followed their dream of starting their own guiding service with friends. They wished to head in a different direction than other guiding outfits in town by providing smaller and customizable trips. In 2002, a dream became reality and ABAK was born.
What started as a small business based out of Becky and Sean’s home office has grown into a full fledged operation providing opportunities for others to explore the Alaska wilderness from Ocean to Ice on a variety of different trips. As the years pass, we continually seek new operating areas and new trip ideas so that we can better share “our” Alaska.
Our guides have received in-depth training that complements their personal experience in traveling and camping in the ocean and mountain environments. Additionally, they are certified in both CPR and a minimum of advanced first aid. However, it is their passion for the outdoors and their ability to blend expert instruction and interpretive knowledge for individuals, couples, families, and small groups of any ability level that make our trips unique and memorable.
