The Expeditionary Mariner, or Pacific, is a 45 day kayaking trip that takes place throughout the Inside Passage of Alaska. The Pacific involves paddling through icy waters, below snowcapped peaks in a beautiful temperate rain forest. Trip groups may see orcas, humpback whales, tide water glaciers, grizzly bears, jelly fish, and many salmon as the group is immersed in ocean life. This expedition starts at Manito-wish where trip groups will review kayaking techniques, team build and pack gear and food. The group will then fly to Juneau, Alaska where they will start and their adventure.
