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. Don't rent a boat and go out solo—even in a skiff—if you don't have boating experience. Shifts in weather and tides, along with other factors, can turn a pleasant kayaking experience into something far less fun.
