Passage Canal
Day Trips

Passage Canal Topographic Map

Passage Canal is a wonderful venue for a day of paddling. The Chugagh mountains surround you housing the northern most range of the temperate rainforest, piedmont glaciers fill the valleys, water falls are everywhere.  Opportunities for mountain goats, marmots, black bears, seals, sea lions, sea otters, eagles, kittiwakes, mures, pigeon guillemots and too many other sea/shore birds to list, oh and the rare, but occasional Humback or Orca.  The longer you're out the more chance you have to experience and embrace this unique environment. 

3-5 hour introductory paddle: 
On this trip we depart from the harbor paddle along the southern shore line exploring coves and salmon streams, do an open water crossing (if the weather allows) to the north shore, spend time at the Kittiwake Rookery where thousand of sea birds nest, pod up in the water and swarm overhead.  We then do another open water crossing back to the harbor.  
3 to 4 miles.
Offered daily starting at 8:00am
Final evening departure at 7:00 pm.

Whittier Harbor
