St. Augustine's Kayak & Tours
Sea Kayaking Tours in Homer, Alaska
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 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.
