Our small group size is especially appropriate for this super productive body of water. Located halfway between Whittier and Valdez, Unakwik has been overlooked by most paddlers as too awkward to access. Also there are a limited number of suitable beaches to camp on, but once one does decide to visit, they are rewarded by a largely unvisited Inlet with abundant wildlife. We will spend the first half of the trip exploring this remote country including a tidewater glacier, before heading back toward Whittier along the outer mainland. This is another travel (paddle) oriented trip for those already comfortable in sea kayaks and paddling 12 - 15 miles a day. We end our trip among a small group of islands that is home to puffins and sea otters and neat old ruins.

Starts in Anchorage with a drive down the very scenic Seward Highway to Whittier. Here we load up on a water taxi for an approx.1.5 hr ride out to a small island at the south end of Unakwik Inlet. Weather dependent, we will paddle up the Inlet to our first base camp.
