Since 2009, women of Ketchikan have been gathering at Southeast Sea Kayaks on summer evenings for Diva Paddle. No singing or kayaking skills are required: just reasonable physical fitness and a desire to enjoy an evening on the water. Our friendly guides plan a trip to take advantage of wind and tide conditions and we vary the route as much as possible. Every evening is different: Divas may visit the Ketchikan Creek, Bar Harbor, or explore Pennock and Gravina Island Shores. First timers are always welcome. Come with friends, or come on your own and we will pair you up with a new friend. Meet at Southeast Sea Kayaks on the dock behind the Alaska Fish House at 5:15pm, sorry, we cannot hold the trip for latecomers. Please sign up online.
When: Wednesday Evenings 5:15pm - 7pm
Price: 20 Adults/15 Girls 6 - 15yrs Cash Only
How to Sign Up: Sign up online - sign up opens on Tuesday for the Wednesday the paddle.
The Diva Paddle is a recreational paddle, not a tour, and all participants use double kayaks (we have triples available also.) Participants must be Ketchikan residents; friends or family visiting Ketchikan residents; or employed in Ketchikan for the summer (we may ask to see and AK driver's license or pay stub). We take reservations for Diva paddle on the day of the paddle only and you can sign up online here. If you sign up, please be sure that you can be at the Fish House by 5:15pm so that we can get out on the water and enjoy the evening. We paddle rain or shine but, due to the fun, social nature of the paddle, we do not run Diva paddle on windy days. Ironically, sunny days are the most challenging for us as it is often very windy in town. Real divas paddle in the rain! Please bring $20 cash, a rain jacket and dress in loose fitting comfortable clothing.
