We are offering regular trips to the most southern part of the Sound. Its distance from Whittier and exposure to the Gulf select against many paddlers visiting the area. Here we begin our exploration in a whale playground that has just the right combination of nutrient-rich tidal flush from the Gulf of Alaska and protection from the open waters. On the mainland there are still a few glaciers trailing off the Sargent ice field which adds the perfect combination of geology and wildlife. Off we go traveling in a loop through narrow island passages and along steep shores of dense luxurious forests. The richness of these waters fosters a vibrant community of marine wildlife. And unlike many parts of the Sound, the pulse of the sea is very real here. Longer days and more challenging conditions makes this an experienced paddlers trip only. The rewards of this dramatic landscape and many magnificent.

Your Itinerary:

Day 1:
This is a big day of travel. We will be driving down from Anchorage along the Seward Highway to Whittier. Meeting our water taxi there we ride south nearly 2 hour to the head of Bainbridge Island to determine our next move. Depending on weather we will either go clockwise or counterclockwise around the island.

Ideally we will be able to paddle all the way to Icy Bay otherwise we will just return to the small wonderful beach we started our journey from. Here a water taxi will pick us up for a long but equally scenic ride to Whitter. From here we will drive back to Anchorage.
