Cross Sound is one northern gateway to Alaska's Inside Passage and, thus, is home to an abundance of marine wildlife. Steller sea lions, horned and tufted puffins, sea otters, harbor seals, bald eagles and other birdlife all call the waters around the Inian Islands home. Migratory humpback whales pass through here on their annual trek between Alaska and the South Pacific. Kayaking in this environment allows you to get close to this wildlife-rich area and its biologically diverse waters.
Please note: (Dis)embarking the kayaks may take place from the ship, the beach or from the Zodiac, depending upon operational requirements. Although sometimes perceived as a passive and relaxing sport, kayaking comes with inherent physical challenges and is therefore advisable only for those in good health. Previous kayaking experience is not required. All kayak gear is provided, including pogie gloves, booties, drysuit and flotation device. A Zodiac follows the kayaks to lend assistance as required. All sea kayaks are doubles. Dress warmly in layers; a waterproof outer layer is provided in the form of a drysuit. Bring a hat or beanie; wear sunglasses and biodegradable sunscreen. A dry bag is provided for devices. Minimum height is 5 feet (1.5 m). Maximum weight per kayak (two persons) is 617 lbs (280 kg). Tour generally operates rain or shine but may be canceled in the event of extremely bad weather or unsuitable conditions. Minimum age is 10 years. Leave all valuables including rings, watches, bracelets and earrings in a safe on board the ship.
