Guiding Small Groups in Homer, Alaska since 1996

Guests traveling with Three Moose Kayak Adventures have the confidence of knowing they are in the care of one of Alaska’s original backcountry tour operators, and the first in the state to offer glacier-lake kayaking!  Having guided here for 2 decades, we have discovered and maintained a simple business principle:  Alaska’s grandeur is best experienced in small groups, with professional guides, off the beaten path.  Our trips are a unique opportunity for anyone wanting to avoid traditional large-group tours, with an average group size is 6-8 guests.  Our guides are courteous, informative, entertaining, and skills-tested according to the American Canoe and Kayak Association standards.

Jennie Hess

Jennie Hess fell in love with Alaska when she vacationed here in 1993. While most tourists buy postcards and t-shirts on vacation, Jennie bought a 5-acre homestead for a souvenir! Locals thought she was crazy to open a bed and breakfast “out in the wilderness”, but 21 years later, her vision has shown that travelers to Alaska want more than just a roadside hotel, or in-town B&B. Giving her guests a wilderness experience “right out your front door” has been a dream fulfilled for Jennie. As lodge owner and part-time trail guide, she enjoys sharing her fun stories and Alaska experiences.
