5-Day Adventure


Hey guys!  The countdown has begun, only 5 days until we head out on an epic trip from Columbia Glacier to Valdez. This is one of my favorite multi-day routes, with 2 glaciers and miles of beautiful coastline.  We have ONE SPOT AVAILABLE! The trip is fully guided, 5 days and 4 nights, and leaves this FRIDAY, JUNE 14th, 2013


If you join us, I’ll even do all the cooking.  The menu is top secret at this point, but will include some of my favorite local fusion dishes like this Copper River Red Salmon taco salad.  YUM. 

The trip is $1225 for 5 days of paddling, 5 days of great camp cuisine, and all the gear you need to pull it off.


If you would like to come along, please give Anadyr Adventures a call, and tell them you want to join us on the Columbia to Valdez 5-day trip :    1 800 TO KAYAK

The Year of the Whale

This year certainly seems to be the year of the whale, as I’ve seen whales on every trip I’ve taken to Columbia Glacier this May!  Here is some footage of three humpbacks in the Valdez Arm.  They get their name from the “hump” we see on the surface as they round their backs to go into a dive.  It’s hard to believe that when we see their fluke, or tail fin, they’ve gone from nearly horizontal to a 49 foot headstand under the surface of the water!

To try your luck at seeing whales like these, join us on one of our Columbia Glacier Day Trips this summer!
