Your Kayak Tour

Ketchikan Kayaking

Join us for a relaxing and educational paddle through the island-covered waterways of the Inside Passage aboard silent, stable, eco-friendly kayaks. Your kayaking Eco-Tour starts with us meeting you right at your cruise ship or hotel.  No need to find us...

We come to you!

We'll get you well out of the downtown chaos as we take a scenic drive north to Knudson Cove Marina.  We have excellent gear waiting for you, and provide everything you need for an enjoyable and comfortable time on the water.  After a quick logistics and safety lesson, your tour leaves from our stable and easy dock.

Ketchikan Kayak Co.

Your expert local guides will then lead you on a relaxed, slow, and educational kayaking journey as you paddle along rocky shorelines where dense rainforest meets the sea.  Our kayak tours are very personal, and focus on teaching you about the critters, eco-systems, and Alaska.

After your tour we get you back to town in plenty of time to enjoy the rest of your day.  

Tour Highlights

Ketchikan Kayaking

We have unbeatable eagle viewing while kayaking amongst small rainforest islands, as well as a large variety of sea and shore birds, larger critters like seals, sea lions, humpback whales, orcas, and an amazing variety of unique tidal life. Our protected waterway has extremely clear water for easy underwater viewing. The heavily forested rocky shorelines open to expansive wilderness views, giving you the best of both worlds.

Kayaking Ketchikan

Salmon runs go right through our eco-tour area, and our tours stay close to shore, ensuring that you see all the things that make the Ketchikan area so great for kayaking.  Please see our Eco-Tour page for all the details and our secure online Reservations page to save your seats! .

We base our business around your experience, and we'll do everything possible to make your kayak tour the best it can be. Thank you for supporting a truly local business.

We look forward to paddling with you !
