Option 3: Paddle Birding Wildlife Float

Floating down a river is one of the best ways to spot wildlife in Gustavus, Alaska. You may see large schools of salmon swimming below you, a range of birds including bald eagles, mergansers, sandpipers, and even larger wildlife such as bears and moose as we navigate this beautiful Gustavus river. Using your choice of kayaks or packrafts, we will start upstream where the river is narrower and enjoy a relaxing float to the mouth where the river meets the ocean. Halfway through the trip we will stop and enjoy hot drinks along the riverbank. Ask about paddling out of the river and into the ocean to end the trip with some sea kayaking! Trip duration is around 2 hours.

Option 5: Remote Island River Fishing

This is a full-day fishing excursion that is designed for those of you looking for a truly remote Alaskan adventure. We will boat from Gustavus to a river on a nearby island where we’ll be dropped off for the day. On the ride to/from the river it is common to spot sea otters, sea lions, and even whales. We will be fishing a wild “last frontier” type area with no signs of civilization to be found. More than likely, the only other mammals we will see are Brown Bears and Sitka Black Tail deer. As we fish and hike along the river, you will be humbled by the mountains that rise up to form the river valley. Depending on the time of year, we’ll fish for Salmon and/or Trout. Both fly rods and spinning rods will be available, as well as lessons for those new to fishing. Packrafts can be brought along for an additional fee. Trip duration is around 8 hours.

As an optional upgrade, travel between Gustavus and the river via float plane can be arranged. While up in the air you will be blown away by the amazing views and might even have the chance to look down on wildlife such as bears or whales.
