Built with purpose.
SummerSummers are spent in Alaska working as a excursion vessel taking guests on 7-10 day trips; kayaking, whale watch-ing, glacier touring, site seeing, you get it…
FallIn the fall and spring she acts as a science lab for public school students near her home port of Bellingham, WA.
WinterDuring the winter she is dry-docked so we can clean her up, make improvements and address anything that needs attention.
SpringWe cater to public school students and environ-mental education train-ing for local universities. We also host research expeditions. In fact, we recently hosted film-maker MacGillivray Freeman and his crew as they shot an IMAX movie about Humpback Whales.
Skiff & kayaksView gallery
Whatever mode of transportation, we pride ourself on the quality of equipment we provide. Our custom aluminum inflatable skiff was built locally, specifically for operating in Alaska. The deep “V” hull and 90 hp outboard not only gets us to shore, but also opens the door to exploration when on the anchor. The ‘Gosling’ to the ‘Goose’, the skiff is extremely stable, reliable and a vital link to accessing the remote trails, rivers, and beaches we visit.
As a prior kayak guide, I know how a quality kayak paddles, so we’ve spared no expense on our six Carbonlite 2000 Eddyline Whisper double kayaks. They are great for beginners and advanced kayakers alike and provide the perfect way to peacefully explore remote areas on your own. We provide all the necessary equipment to make your kayaking experience the most comfortable and awe inspiring.
