Southeast Alaska has some of the worlds greatest sea kayaking and camping. It offers truly remote areas where we can travel for days without seeing anyone else, glaciers, and fantastic opportunities for wildlife viewing. Our trips explore 10,000 year old growth forests and brand new land just uncovered by glaciers. On land we'll see ancient trees, muskegs, river systems, glacial streams and the truly fantastic world of the intertidal zone.
If time in Gustavus and Glacier Bay is limited, you can still experience world-class sea kayaking and whale-watching with fantastic day trips. These trips leave from Gustavus and we provide the gear, guides, and lunch.
From popular Glacier Bay to rarely visited fjords of the Tongass National Forest, our glacier trips give kayakers of all skill levels a front-row view of these majestic ecosystems.
Our Whales trips are our most popular and longest-running — we pioneered these routes 30 years ago and know every inch of shoreline, the best places to view humpback whales, and superb hikes through old growth forest.
Our multi-night wilderness expeditions let you explore the raw, untouched beauty of Southeast Alaska’s coast, with opportunities to observe brown bear, whales, seals, and migrating salmon.
My trip with Spirit Walker Expeditions was amazing. My experience kayaking among the whales is something I will never forget! Go! You will love it.
We had a wonderful experience on a Spirit Walker trip this summer. Six nights, seven days in the Myriad Islands Wilderness. The trip was well organized, the gear was top quality and the guides were great! ... an experience I'll always remember.
Hearing the whales and having them come up so close to you is a once in a lifetime feeling.
We booked the Whales tour to Point Adolphus for our family which includes a 6 year old and 9 year old... Great safety orientation for our boys who don't have a lot of experience kayaking. Thanks for an unforgettable experience.
It doesn't get any better than this. If you want to experience the real Alaska you must get out on the water... If we return to Alaska, we will make this expedition again.
