Note: visibility of the glacier is subject to weather conditions. * Travel in small groups of 5 to 6 kayaks, so you're better able to stealthily approach wildlife. Bald eagles and their nests, herons, shorebirds and waterfowl are all common sights. Porpoises and even humpback whales occasionally surface for air with their enormous tail flukes. * Visit the Mendenhall wetlands, a protected habitat teeming with more than 140 species of birds, nearly a dozen different mammals and an abundance of marine life. You're your guide, learn about local flora and fauna and the history behind landmarks such as Smuggler's Cove. * Conclude your approximate 90-minute paddling adventure and step ashore to enjoy an Alaskan-style snack and "Glacier Paddle Punch" served in a souvenir "Bio Green" bottle.
