Settle in aboard an expedition vessel for a wonderfully picturesque cruise to a private island kayak base, the starting point for a kayaking adventure through the Siginaka Islands. The cruise will set the stage for what lies ahead, as the scenery will be spectacular. Still, few experiences rival exploring the islands in a sea kayak, where the serenity is so overwhelming that you will feel at one with nature. As you paddle around the islands, your guide will point out marine life, such as sea stars, anemones, sea urchins, jelly fish and more. Animals such as sea otters, harbor seals, sea lions and porpoises are frequently spotted as well, some breaching the water’s surface, others sunning on the rocky shores. And be sure to scan the trees for majestic bald eagles. This tour takes place on land and water that is sacred to both the Haida Gwaii and the Tlingit peoples. These Alaska Native groups are an important part of the history of this beautiful place.
