Rentals and Boat Charters in Petersburg, AK
The sea kayaking opportunities around Petersburg and in Alaska's Inside Passage are endless! LeConte Glacier Bay with its tidewater glacier, the Stikine River, Thomas Bay, Frederick Sound, Kuiu Island and Duncan Canal are all areas that offer outstanding kayaking opportunities for people seeking an Alaskan adventure. The camping is excellent and there are more than 20 U.S. Forest Service Cabins available for rent (www.recreation.gov) that makes perfect base camps for kayakers.
I have both doubles($65 per day) and singles($55 per day) fiberglass sea kayaks for rent and camping equipment if you need it. There is a 3 day minimum and some paddling experience is required. Rentals for 7 days or more receive a 15% discount. I can drop you off with the powerboat or you can paddle right from town! Drop me a note(firstname.lastname@example.org) or call me (907 772-4600) and I can help you plan your own adventure.
After many years of looking at powerboats and owning several I knew what I wanted for the perfect excursion vessel to show people this incredible area. I needed a strong hull to withstand bumping into icebergs, a deep “V” bottom to handle those days when the wind picks up, huge windows, private head(restroom) and an easy way to get on and off. Both at the dock and at a remote beach! Three years ago, I finally found the man who could build it for me. He has been designing and building custom commercial aluminum boats for 30 years. The “Tongass Jem” is thirty feet long and ten wide, with viewing decks, bow and stern, a large heated cabin mid-ship and has drop-down bow ramp to easily get to shore without getting your feet wet or think you are at a climbing gym! Its powered by two large outboards to safely and quickly get us to our destination. Also, I limit my tours to six guests, so you’ll have plenty of room and not think you’re on bus.
