Default kayaking in juneau

first of all i heard kayaking in ketchikan is much better....but i have an excursion planned already and i won't have any time left. so i would like to kayak in juneau, has anyone kayak here? and if so did you book it from the cruise ship or will it be easy for me to book once i get off the ship? and is it easy to find a kayak rental shop? this is one excursion i must do before leaving alaska.

thanks,

g

We did the kayaking in Juneau and found it quite boring for this particular shore excursion.

The plus side was that it was 16 miles out of town [ so you get to see a bit of the area ] and then we stopped to see the Mendelhoff glacier way off in the distance . All we did was go across 3/4 mile strait and circle a small island {approx 3miles }> saw an immature eagle and a mink .

Ketchikan would have been more enjoyable for us as you paddle up a small Creek
and go past the old section of town and even watch the seals looking for fish.

We have done alot of Canoeing and were thinking about purchasing an sea kayak and thought this would give us an idea if we like this kind of craft .. great fun and more stable than a canoe .
have fun

I have kayaked the Channel Islands and they are scenic. For clairfication- for any kayaking tour- you need reservations in advance. There won't be a lot if any walk up space- IF you know where to go??? Ketchikan offers much more than the Creek St. paddle- there are several areas to consider. Look for Juneau venders- www.traveljuneau.com
