Navigate Through Alaska's Unspoiled Abundance
Alaskan waters have historically been explored in open-air canoes and longboats; both are similar to our skiffs. Open-air skiffs are stable viewing vessels and the only way to explore miles of precipitous shorelines while still being able to disembark on a private beach or reach out and touch wall hanging sea stars at low tide.
Alaska, "The Last Frontier," retains vast unspoiled expanses of wilderness. We invite you to get away from the crowds and join us on an interactive and personal tour where our guests may witness, a mere stones throw from the skiff, harbor seals basking in the sun, bald eagles snatching fish from the water, killer and humpback whales gliding by, and Dall porpoise zigzagging around us.
Authentic Alaska Native Americans used open-air canoes as the only viable mode for travel, trade, and communication. By skiff, you will share the cool salt spray and fresh air once only reserved for local tribes or explorers.
Tide Pool Treasures
As a youngster, did you delight in the neighborhood creeks and ponds? Then it's time to get out of the skiff and go on a treasure hunt. Delight in the discovery of purple, sunflower, and northern sun sea stars, feed tide pool sculpins, and watch purple shore crabs scuttle over your bare hands.
The symbol of American freedom and pride thrives in Alaska. We will see more eagles than people and have close, but respectful, encounters with nesting pairs, soaring, and feeding eagles. It's a sight that leaves everyone breathless and many guests saying, "Now that alone was worth the trip!"
