We did kayaking in Ketchikan, across the river and back, up Creek a way and then all around the harbor.

It was salmon season in early September and they were jumping all around our kayak..

There is also kayaking in Auke Bay, Juneau and I understand that its a good place to venture.

I have kayaked several locations in Ketchikan and the Channel Islands out of Juneau, Ketchikan is a top location in my opinion.

Is Ketchikan doable for out of shape first time kayakers? All calm water? Are these two person boats or individual? With guide or on your own?

When we [my wife and myself] did kayaking in Ketchikan,it was a first for both of us..

Waters were calm and we opted to have a guide in our kayak...

The waters across from where the cruise ships dock were calm also and of course kayaking up and down the inland waters of Creek Street were sheltered waters.

We did this in early Sept and the salmon were jumping!!!
