This paddle leaves from Miller's Landing on Lowell Point. Paddlers kayak to Tonsina Creek and view the beautiful ghost forest remains of the 1964 Alaskan Earthquake. If you're around later in the summer you're able to view colorful salmon spawning in Tonsina Creek and eagles lurking nearby, awating a tasty treat.
It is not unusual for paddlers to see eagles, sea otters, sea lions, and sometimes mountain goats or black bears. The highlights of this trip are viewing salmon spawning and the mysterious ghost forests.
This paddle is offered in the morning and evening. The morning and evening paddles are appropriate for any athletic ability. No paddling experience is necessary but recommended.

Please note: Miller's Landing encourages only guaranteed prepaid reservations. Unlike many other states, Alaska has a very short tourist season which can make it difficult for us to rebook when we have cancellations without ample notice.
If you are booking a charter and lodging and your charter , water taxi or kayaking is cancelled due to weather you are still responsible for the lodging or camping reservations and the normal cancellation policy applies. All of our activities are possible during rain, so rain does not constitute a cancellation. Miller's Landing is not responsible for vehicle break downs, personal emergencies, flight delays, health issues or other unforeseen hardships. We will try very hard to work with you but the cancellation policy will need to be applied if we cannot issue a raincheck or find an alternative solution that appeals to both parties.
Please understand that Miller's Landing also incurs a hefty financial merchant fee from our bank for the cost of charging your credit card and again for the cost of refunding it, and there is also a cost involved for the time involved in processing and refunding your reservation in employee costs. Our goal when taking your reservation is to have a solid, guaranteed prepaid reservation. We strongly discourage the practice of making reservations without having an airline ticket or making tentative reservations. Thank you for your understanding.
