Blackstone Bay Four-Day Tour:
$1,400 per person
Your journey begins by meeting at our Whittier office on Triangle Loop at 9am to outfit with dry-gear and pack your dry bags. We’ll launch the kayaks and give an instructional talk of use of these unique Hobie Cat sailing kayaks. Once on the water we will hug the rugged coastline for roughly 5 miles to Shotgun Cove to have launch and explore the beach where there rests a historic shipwreck. After lunch we’ll continue East along the coast until reaching our destination for the evening at Decision Point*. Camp will already be set-up for you by our jet-ski assist team allowing your guide to build a lovely fire and cook up a hot yummy meal while you enjoy the natural beauty of this location.
*Decision Point is a State of Alaska Park tucked in a protected cove. There are tent platforms tucked into the mossy forest that provides a comfortable secluded environment.
Day 2 – After a delicious hot breakfast and coffee/tea we’ll l pack up our sleeping bags and pads while leaving the tents for our return on night three and kayak along nine miles of stunning coastline, stopping to view any wildlife (seals, otters, eagles, sea lions or maybe a whale) that presents itself. We’ll have a lunch on beach along the way and make camp at 17 Mile, a beach with ample camping spots and stunning views. After making camp and having another hot cooked meal, we’ll take a light kayak to Lawrence Glacier for a short hike up to view the glacier before returning to camp for the evening.
Day 3 – Another hearty breakfast and coffee starts our day followed by packing up all the camp equipment. We’ll spend the day up close viewing Beloit and Blackstone Glaciers, both are actively calving ice into the ocean! We’ll enjoy lunch on the beach with an amazing view of Blackstone Glacier before scraping along the West Coast of Blackstone Bay, returning to our previous camp site at Decision Point.
Day 4 – A hot breakfast and coffee will start our day followed by packing up camp to be left for a pick-up by our jet-ski assist team allowing us to travel light across Passage Canal to the North shore. There will be an option to stop in Poe Bay for a hike and lunch before we venture back to Whittier for a farewell dinner at the Inn at Whittier.
Do to limited camping space; two people from the same party will share a top of the line 4-person tent with extra-large sleeping pads, cold weather bags with individual sleeping bag liners and a full size pillow.
Full size camp chairs, fresh made meals by the guide and a nightly campfire make these trips extra comfortable and relaxing.
Cost: $1,400 per person plus taxes and fees. Price includes all equipment, fuel, food (except farewell dinner and alcohol) permits, jet-ski assist and professional guide service.
