Your Questions

We provide all the gear necessary for your adventure. If you are kayaking, we provide a quality kayak, life vest, spray shirt, spray skirt, paddle, instruction and a guide. If you are kayak fishing*, we provide a quality sit on top kayak, life vest, paddle, instruction and a guide.

* Please note: Kayak fishing can feel clumsy. When you are "out of water" you need to remember to keep your paddle and rod attached. When you hook a salmon, be patient and take your time bringing it in. The fish in Alaska are big enough to take you for a ride! Any equipment that is lost is your responsibility and you will be expected to replace its value.

* A limited number of dry suits are available for rent. Please email or call us for more information and availability. Damage deposit is required.

You can rent our gear and adventure without a guide if you prefer.
