Quick Schedule Search
With 3,500 miles of scenic coastal waterways, nearly every stop on the Alaska Marine Highway is a perfect paddling-off point for you and your kayak. Bring your kayak onboard the ferry with you for as little as $15, depending on your route, or rent a kayak in your destination port.
See the wildlife and glaciers that make up Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve. Get an up-close and personal look at the area's marine life as you make your way through the Beardslee Islands. Take the ferry from Juneau to our port in Gustavus, considered the gateway to Glacier Bay. Or venture to the side of the Gulf of Alaska for a trip through Alaska's Interior and Prince William Sound. Here you will find great kayaking and hiking adventures. Take in Childs Glacier or Sheridan Glacier in Cordova as part of this four-day itinerary.
Birding by Kayak
A morning ride on the fast ferry from Juneau starts a three-day weekend in Sitka. Paddle the pristine bays of Sitka Sound and the surrounding islands. Include a trip to Saint Lazaria Island to see the hundreds of thousands of area seabirds. Another birding adventure awaits you on Kodiak Island. See the puffins in the cliffs around Chiniak Bay from the seat of your kayak. Start your adventure in Anchorage, driving to Homer for some kayaking off the famous Homer Spit. Catch the ferry to Port Lions for viewing birds, sea otters and sea lions. From there, take the ferry to Kodiak and kayak the waters around Alaska’s Emerald Isle.
