Top Ten Canoe, Kayak, and Raft Camping Trips
The Inside Passage is a protected waterway that extends for 950 miles from Puget Sound to Skagway, Alaska. This is a stretch of water ideal for sea kayaking: a myriad of islands shielding an intricate, lushly forested coastline. Summer weather tends toward the sweetly calm. Highlights of the Inside Passage include the renowned San Juan Islands, the east coast of Vancouver Island, and the verdant Tongass National Forest.
Quiet and low in the water, sea kayaks are perfect for wildlife watching. And this is a region that won't disappoint. Be on the lookout for otters, bears, a wealth of birdlife, and whales (even orcas).
