Looking for an awesome summer adventure? Wait until enough ice has melted (a safe bet is late July – August) and kayak to Johns Hopkins Inlet in Glacier Bay, Alaska. The paddling here can be intense, so make sure you know what you’re doing – even if you go with a guide, you should be a reasonably strong paddler. The views are amazing, and you’re likely to have the black sand beach to yourselves. Pitch a tent and stay a night or two. If you’re lucky, you’ll see dozens or hundreds of seals floating on icebergs while listening to the glaciers calve and enjoying short walks on and above the black sand beach. The spot is truly magical.
Spring is in sight, and with it, the thought of warmer weather activities…
Planning to visit the Hudson Valley region of NY? Rent a kayak, canoe, or stand up paddleboard from A Day Away and spend a day out on the water. A family-owned business, you’ll get great, friendly service in the historic Rondout section of Kingston.
Have a chance to enjoy a taste of summer in Key West during wintertime? Rent a kayak from The Lazy Dog and paddle through narrow channels between collections of mangroves, explore an un-labeled salt pond where you can see multitudes of upside-down, photosynthetic jellyfish, and relax in the calm Atlantic Ocean. Other creatures you may see include starfish, tropical fish of all sizes, a cat standing guard on a dilapidated houseboat…

Your adventure with The Lazy Dog is bound to leave you feeling relaxed, refreshed, and rejuvenated.
