Inside Passage Travel Guide

Health and Safety

Southeast is, as we've mentioned, wet. Make sure you bring rain gear. No sense catching cold on vacation. Also, if you’re new to catching seafood, consider hiring a guide to help you find the safest spots—Alaska's waters are powerful. Also, don't rent a boat and go out solo—even in a skiff—if you don't have boating experience. Shifts in weather, tides, and lots of other factors can turn a pleasant kayaking experience into something far less fun.
