Prince of Wales Island kayak tour offered for 2010

Tuesday, December 01, 2009

Whether by jet or small plane, anytime I’m overflying Alaska’s coastline and can see the ground, I’m planning routes and imagining adventure trips. Sometimes they remain dreams, sometimes they become reality.

Uncommon Adventures founder and kayaker Michael Gray of Michigan must have flown over Prince of Wales Island (POW) on a clear day, with a friendly pilot who pointed out that POW is the third largest island in the United States and seldom visited. One month later, Michael has pulled together the details and is offering an exploratory kayak tour on the northwest coast of the island in June 2010, co-led by a local guide. He’ll bring these folks through Ketchikan, floatplane to Craig, bed and breakfast in Craig, transfers on the island, and I expect they’ll be renting kayaks from someone. And, those kayakers will be going home with stories of seemingly endless miles of wild coastline just calling for exploration. Thanks Michael and happy paddling.
