Blackstone Bay
Get a good bunch of people. Get in a car (with camping equipment, food, frisbees, firewood, bug dope, whatever else). Head to the town of Whittier. Rent kayaks from a local company. Get a water taxi to drop you, your friends, the gear, the kayak, and whatever else you bring along at whatever camping area they recommend in Blackstone Bay. Then spend a few days paddling the bay to watch the area's many glaciers calve (don't get too close), waterfalls, and random beaches perfect for picnics. Back at camp? Cook, drink, hang. This is car camping at its boat camping finest. You can bring everything, though be prepared to do some schlepping. (Some paddling experience recommended for this outing. Rescue equipment would be helpful too. Probably not necessary, but it won't hurt to bring it along.) Prefer a guided day tour? Give Sound Paddler a ring.
