This kayaking tour offers an intimate experience at one of Prince William
Sounds' many calving tidewater glaciers. It is perfect for children, beginners
and experienced kayakers. Climb aboard a motor boat for a 40-minute ride to
Shoup Bay where your scenic journey begins. Over the course of the day, you will
paddle around floating icebergs, past a nesting colony of Black-Legged
Kittiwakes, and up to the face of the glacier. Wildlife abounds in the area -
birds, ducks, sea otters and harbor seals are common. Enjoy a short walk on the
beach and a lunch break with a colorful glacier view (lunch not included). At
the end of the paddle you will be returned to Valdez by motorboat. Tour
