We feature Hobie Cat Tandem Island kayaks that move effortlessly under sail, and are comfortable and efficient under pedal power. Sit back and relax in the cushioned, recumbent seats, hands free to drink, snack, or take photos. These are extremely stable boats, so you won’t have to worry about tipping over in cold water!

Take a water taxi deep into the Prince William Sound to the prime whale watching grounds in the whole state. We’ll camp on remote beach locations, eat fresh from the ocean gourmet meals, campfires on the beach at night and paddle among the feeding humpback whales during the days.

We’ll explore waterfalls, and watch the waters around us “boil” with salmon. We may see orcas, sea lions, sea otters, eagles, black bears, and innumerable water birds. In the end we’ll take a water taxi back to Whittier.

Our kayaks are unique for Alaskan tours, with an 18′ tall mast and 90 sq.ft. of sail, we can zip along at up to 12 knot speeds with no effort, or leisurely pedal the “mirage drive” (think recumbent bike) at over 4 knots. This leaves your hands free to take photos or eat snacks, all while moving twice as fast as paddling with half the effort.

The seats are very comfortable and laid back, with easy use of all features. Pontoons on either side provide incredible stability in all weather conditions and trampolines on either side can hold gear or be laid on to relax and enjoy the ride while under sail. Cutting edge technology combined with rugged guide skills make for a safe and adventurous tour you will forever be glad you took!
