1/2-Day Halibut Cove Kayak Tour

1/2-Day Halibut Cove Kayak Tour

Halibut Cove is a breathtaking corner of Alaska where mile-high snow-capped peaks thrust themselves out of the protected cove. This trip starts with a 30-minute scenic boat cruise on Kachemak Bay, arriving at our wilderness lodge outpost inside Kachemak Bay State Park. After instructions and “gearing up”, head out on the protected cove in search of sea otters, bald eagles, and other marine life. Paddle along sea cliff, sea caves, and then stretch your legs and do some beach combing on a pristine beach accessible only by boat. The journey continues as you hear the stories of the once bustling fishing village of Halibut Cove, turned ghost town, then revived into an eclectic community of a few dozen hardy fishermen, artists, and oyster farmers.  In short, there’s no place on earth like Halibut Cove!
