St. Augustine's Kayak & Tours

Sea Kayaking Tours in Homer, Alaska

Featured Kayak Tours

Romancing the Sea since 1983

Experience Alaska sea kayaking with a long-established first class outfitter. St. Augustine’s Kayak & Tours offers guided kayaking from their spectacular basecamp in outer Peterson Bay in the heart of Kachemak Bay State Park. The central location has a wealth of diverse paddling routes and loops to choose from, including the Gull Island bird rookery and it’s 16,000 nesting birds and China Poot Bay, often touted as one of the world’s richest estuaries with its vast system of tidal channels.

Depending on the trip you choose, there are many hike/paddle options from short stretch hikes to scenic overviews to high alpine scrambles above the glaciers.

Our trips are limited to small groups and are organized to take the best advantage of fair tidal currents and protected inner bays. Our typical paddle route is chosen for its potential for viewing wildlife, exceptional scenery, and calm waters. Our goal is to provide the very best quality trip within the time constraints of the tour you select. Come paddle with us!


Our Advantages


Our basecamp is centrally located to some of the best paddling routes and trailheads Kachemak Bay has to offer.


Our paddling routes have many options including:

Kachemak Bay’s largest seabird colony, tide pools, stretch hikes to scenic overviews, open water, narrow channels, archways to pass through, oyster farms, and salmon streams, as well as the constant possibility of encounters with sea life.


Since 1983 we have divided our time professionally between small boat sailing and kayaking in the adventure travel industry in Kachemak Bay.

During our off-season, we have demonstrated our passion for our profession by having sailed or paddled on the waters of most of the countries between Alaska and Patagonia. Clearly, we sincerely love what we do and want our guests to as well.

5-Star Sea Kayaking Reviews in Homer, AK!

Tired but amazing!

"We did the all day kayaking trip, and according to the guide we kayaked farther than most so my arms were definitely done for by the end but I felt it was fairly easy most of the trip. plenty warm with a long sleeve and a light jacket. Saw lots of wild life and the scenery was pretty great too. Would recommend to anyone going to Homer."

Get on the water!

"If you are staying in Homer and have not participated in a water related activity, do this one! It's easy and adventurous at the same time and the price will not break the bank!"

You "Otter sea" this!!!

"This was an amazing experience! My teen son and daughter did the single kayaks and loved it. I shared a double with another customer and was thankful for that so that I could take pictures. We saw a sea otter up close and personal. Also saw birds, river otter, seals, eagle. We stopped on a beach and took a break for berry picking. This trip was a highlight of our time in Homer."

A Must While in Homer

"My wife and I booked a 1/2 day kayak trip with St. Augustine's and would highly recommend the experience. The day was perfect, no rain, warm weather and calm water. Our guide, Josh, was experienced, informative and really made the trip great. The scenery was amazing. Eagles, otters, sea stars, puffins etc."
