Wildlife Viewing Tours

Experience Kayaking with Whales

Take a scenic cruise and kayak through beautiful surroundings with Above & Beyond Alaska. Our wildlife viewing tours are an intimate, small group experience that begins with being whisked away to the Channel Islands State Marine Park via our small motor boat. While onboard and kayaking, guests will learn about the ecosystems and natural history from our professional guides and captains. No matter your skill level, it is hard to top the excitement from viewing whales, wildlife, and snowcapped peaks all from the seat of your kayak.

Our Paddle with Whales trip includes van transportation, roundtrip motorboat transportation, professional guides, boat captain, healthy snacks, lunch, a souvenir water bottle, expert instruction, and top of the line gear.

From ocean to ice, Above and Beyond Alaska is thrilled to be a part of your next adventure!
