Alaska by Sea: Mothership Sea Kayaking Adventure

Sea kayaking is an incredible way to experience Alaska, particularly the Southeast, home to some of the best-preserved wilderness areas in the world! Encounters with animals both by land and by sea make any kayaking adventure a truly unforgettable experience. Launching every day from your own private small ship, in a the quiet of a stable sea kayak, you’ll drift in the tides and breezes, observing some of the natural world’s most spectacular performances, from the explosive breaching of humpback whales to the calving of age-old glaciers. Southeast Alaska is truly one of the planet’s last frontiers.

The mothership concept allows you the comfort of luxury accommodations while enjoying incredible access to nature, making this the ideal getaway for both small and large groups. After a hearty breakfast, launch your kayak and paddle with your expert guide along Southeast’s best stretches of coastline, learning about the local wildlife from up close. Then board your ship at the end of the day, sharing highlights from your day over dinner, before heading off to a good night’s sleep in a comfortable bed. Wake up the next day in another great paddling spot, enjoying special access to areas of high whale and bear concentration, along sea cliffs with nesting birds, and close enough to hear the thunderous sounds of tidewater glaciers!

Depending on the kind of experience your group wants, we can customize your adventure to hit a variety of the region’s highlights, from the areas around Juneau and Glacier Bay National Park to Sitka and beyond. Whether you come to breathe cleanest air of your life, take time away from home to shift your perspective, or to see some of nature’s greatest treasures, our Mothership Sea Kayaking Adventure is sure to recalibrate your senses, refresh your spirit, and renew your relationship to nature.
