Stand up paddle / kayak trips SOURCE: Liquid Adventures
Paddle offshore on a short excursion or load into a water taxi for a day trip exploring Caines Head, Fox Island or the Aialik Glacier. Bald eagles often soar overhead: Listen for their distinctive cackle (the majestic shrill associated with America’s national bird is, in fact, the dubbed cry of a red-tailed hawk). Kayakers should also be alert for sea otters, harbor seals and leaping salmon. As you would on any Alaskan activity, wear synthetic clothing, dress in layers and bring along a waterproof jacket and trousers.
