Emerald Isle Sea Kayak Tours | Kodiak, Alaska

Whether you have lived on Kodiak Island your whole life, or you have just touched down on the Emerald Isle for the first time, you don’t want to miss out on exploring this beautiful archipelago. Seated comfortably in our expedition sea kayaks, prepare to see this small coastal fishing town in a whole new light.

Relax as you take in the mountain vistas rising out of the sea. Spot bald eagles overhead while harbor seals pop up shyly in front of your bow. Track through the water with grace and agility, no matter your experience level, easily navigating to hidden beaches that beg to be explored. This is your invitation to adventure.

Why paddle with our guides?

At Kayak Kodiak, we want to help you become immersed in the outdoors. Let your worries and thoughts of work float away with the tide as you paddle the protected waters of Kodiak.

Feel empowered as you become comfortable and confident guiding your boat or board around kelp beds and rocky shores. Fall into the rhythm of paddling, keeping your senses alert for a passing playful sea otter or a snorting sea lion in the distance.

A must go if you are going to be in Kodiak!

Our morning kayak with Jen was phenomenal. Jen is the perfect blend of instructor, guide, iPhone photographer, and naturalist. She knew exactly how to set the pace for our abilities and was just as excited to view the life underwater as we were, seeing it for the first time. It was misty and drizzly but that in no way put a damper on our adventure. Loved every minute!

Amazing Paddle

We spent this morning with Jennifer kayaking around Kodiak harbor. We had the best weather which really added to the experience. We saw, sea lions, otters, harbor seals, bald eagles, tons of birds and even a pair of deer. Our friends were absolute beginners and did great. Highly suggest this tour!

Tandem Fun

Jennifer took us on an adventure around Sea islands off of Chiniak and we saw harbor seals in their natural habitat, who were just as surprised to see us as we were them! We beached our kayaks on an island and checked out the tide pools, she pointed out the sea anemone's and we searched for Kodiak beach treasures. The views of Kodiak from the water were breathtaking.

Awesome kayaking trip!

Jennifer was our fantastic kayak guide on what turned out to be a special day on the water! She is very knowledgeable about kayaking and wildlife and we felt like we were in professional, capable hands. We saw harbor seals, sea otters, sea stars, bald eagles, beautiful guillemots and lots of puffins! This is a must when visiting Kodiak!

Fun and educational

We paddled around Chiniak Bay and observed harbor seals and hundreds of puffins. This was my first time kayaking in the ocean. Jennifer gave very good paddling instructions. When I followed them I really felt like I could have paddled for much longer than the 3 hours we were gone. I had no muscle soreness the following day. I definitely recommend including this in your Kodiak experience and would like to do it again on a future trip.

First-rate outing in a kayak

We have taken a kayak trip with Jennifer 2 times this summer. As a biologist, a great personality and kayak instructor, we got more information and insights than you might expect. Both trips were unique and worthwhile. Kodiak is a great place to kayak and we would highly recommend a guided trip with her.
