No experience is necessary to kayak in the protected waters of Port Frederick. Set off from the beach at Icy Strait Point in a two-person wilderness kayak, led by a safety-certified local guide. Paddle along the Hoonah waterfront en route to quieter waters where bald eagles are often seen and few humans can follow. Keep your eyes open and your spirit of adventure with you along the way, as humpback whales have been known to feed along the very same route. A motorized safety boat accompanies the tour, but participants should be fit enough to paddle through small waves against a current.
