Prince William Sound Cabins

Prince William Sound Activities: Kayaking

Eshamy Bay, Eshamy Lagoon and around nearby water ways and coves are all excellent kayaking locations with numerous interconnecting passages, islets, lagoons and beaches. These waters are protected from the open sea and most often are calm, affording easy paddling to both beginners and experienced sea-kayakers.

We have single and double kayaks available free of charge to Eshamy Bay Lodge guests! Guided tours are available for $75 per person for up to 3 hours with departure from Eshamy Bay Lodge. Call for rates on guided trips outside of Eshamy Bay Lodge. Guided trips must be booked at time of reservation for secured availability. Small party discounts are available depending on occupancy. Call for daily rates! *Guided tours are priority on kayak use*

The lagoon has a wide diversity of bird life, including waterfowl, arctic terns, marbled murrelets, black oystercatchers, loons, eagles and cormorants as well as many migrants such as sandhill cranes. Wildlife you can see includes black bear, sea otters (often with pups), river otters, mink, Sitka black-tailed deer, seals, sea lions, porpoisus, and whales. Hump-back whales and Orca(Killer)Whales frequent Eshamy Bay and the water just outside of the bay.

A great day trip includes paddling the enchanting Eshamy Lagoon up to Eshamy Creek trail and hiking past the salmon weir on the way to Eshamy Lake to see common loons. There is great berry picking in the fall along the trail as well as black bear viewing, salmon viewing and fishing.

Kayaking amongst icebergs and glaciers is also an exhilarating option – visit Nassau Fjord and the Prince William Sound  Chenega Glacier for a sea-kayaking day trip of a lifetime without tour boats. Our Water Taxi vessels can carry kayaks aboard to bring your kayaking experience anywhere in Prince William Sound!
