George Inlet is a protected bay located just a short distance southeast of Ketchikan and offers some very scenic wilderness paddling. The bay is a good option for novice paddlers as the channel is fairly protected with minimal boat traffic and mild tidal influence. There are some nice options for wilderness camping along the channel and great wildlife viewing opportunity. Using the tides to your advantage can result in easier paddling conditions but wind can result in some unfavorable paddling conditions so pay attention to the weather before setting out. This out-and-back trip up to the head of the inlet covers over 30 miles and is a good option for a 3-day trip.
