Upon arrival at Chilkoot Lake State Park, your guide will show you the basics of kayaking, from paddling techniques to safety as well as outfit you with the proper gear.
Take in the scenery as you board your tandem sea kayak, and glide silently along the shores of the lake. This pristine lake is uncrowded, and the scenery is spectacular. Huge waterfalls spill off of the cliffs surrounding the lake, lush green forests crowd the shoreline, and wildlife abounds. Take a pause at the base of one of these waterfalls to learn from your experienced guide about the ecology of the rainforest.
Beginning in July, sockeye salmon spawn in one of the clear streams that feed into the lake. Bald eagles and bears are often attracted to this spot, and you will have a front-row seat to all the action in your kayak.
Paddle back to shore and enjoy a boxed lunch before continuing back to Haines filled with memories and photographs from an unforgettable adventure.
