Tour Details

From Skagway, you will take a 45 minute trip on a motorized catamaran to Haines where you will meet your wilderness guide. You will set out on a seaside drive to Chilkoot Lake State Park. This park has many highlights including Tlingit Indian cultural sites, a salmon-filled river flowing into the sea, and a turquoise lake surrounded by snow-capped mountains. During this tour, keep an eye out for wildlife bald eagles, brown bear, and migratory birds are often seen here.

Once you arrive at Chilkoot Lake State Park, take in the scenery as you board your Easy Rider Beluga 2 person sea kayaks. The kayaks hold up to 500 pounds total and are easy to learn to handle. Your expert guide will show you the basics of paddling. Outfitted with the proper gear, you will soon be gliding silently along the shores of the lake. This pristine lake is uncrowded, and the scenery is spectacular. Huge waterfalls spill off of the cliffs surrounding the lake, lush green forests crowd the shoreline, and wildlife abounds. Pause at the base of one of these waterfalls where your guide will reveal the secret workings of the rainforest. Beginning in July, sockeye salmon spawn in one of the clear streams that feed into the lake. Eagle and bear are often attracted to this spot, and you will be able to view all the activity from your kayak. Total time on the lake is approximately 1 hour 30 minutes.

Paddle back to shore and enjoy a box lunch before driving back to Haines. Once back in Haines, board the high-speed catamaran for your journey back to Skagway.
