This paddling trip is a must do for anyone who wants to do some whale watching while in southeast Alaska. Point Adolphus is the best spot in the passage for viewing humpback whales and lots of other marine life including sea lions, orcas, and sea otters. The trip starts from the Hoonah ferry terminal and crosses Port Frederick, and then follows the shoreline all the way up Point Adolphus. The water is easily paddled during good conditions but wind can result in rough waters. Staying close to shore will allow paddlers to pull off easily when the waters become unmanageable. There are some good camping spots on Point Adolphus.
