Sea Kayaking in Alaska

One of the biggest reasons why Afognak Island is so ideal for kayaking is its calm waters. Our Alaska Wilderness Lodge offers access to both fresh and saltwater, and our seashores are full of protected bays. Throughout your time sea kayaking in Alaska, you’re likely to see magnificent animals, such as sea lions, seals, sea otters, and porpoises. Your eyes will also be greeted by fantastic rock formations, emerald trees, and brilliantly-colored shorelines.
