Safety Policy

As experienced paddlers and a fully insure sea kayaking outfitter with trained licensed guides, we have first hand experience with the risks associated with paddling in the cold waters of Alaska. Together, the water temperature and quickly changing weather patterns create the greatest risk for paddling here, hypothermia. As a result, we are constantly monitoring the weather and sea conditions and changing our trip itinerary as needed to ensure your safety.

Miller’s Landing uses only top quality equipment, including plastic single and double expedition sea kayaks with sealed bulkheads and rudders. Equipment for every guided trip includes a wilderness first aid kit, flare/signal kit, VHF/weather radio, tow ropes, extra paddle and clothing, and a bilge pump and paddle float for each boat. Our goal is to be prepared with the proper equipment and a skilled guide with the concern and professionalism to provide you with a safe, informative, and enjoyable sea kayak adventure.

Wilderness Ethics

In addition to safety, we have the added responsibility of taking care of the fragile coastal environment in the mid-coast area. To this end, we teach and emulate the best low impact camping techniques available. We keep our group size small (eight person maximum on multi-day trips) and multiple sites (both public and private) to minimize the impact on the natural environments of our area.

Many of the Miller’s Landing kayaking staff have active volunteer roles in land trusts and local environmental organization, which help to educate the public and protect and preserve this special part of the Alaskan coast. One of our goals is that the fun of a sea kayak tour creates an awareness of the beauty and fragility of our marine environments.

We hope to educate you about the local history and culture and the diversity of the wildlife living here. In addition, we want to help you slow down and reconnect to nature in an environmentally friendly manner through healthy exercise in a beautiful place.
