Tonsina Point Kayak & Gold Panning Combo

Quick Details

Adult Ages 18+
Child Ages 8 to 17

This Family activity combo will make a great day for you! Kayak in the Resurrection Bay area to Tonsina Point and experience real Alaska gold panning! All in one day!

We specialize in small group tours with no more than 6 people per guide. This adventure is great for first time paddlers, families or groups to experience the wonders of Resurrection Bay and search for gold and semi-precious stones in our elevated troughs.

This scenic kayak tour departs from Lowell Point on the south end of Seward. We follow the remarkable western coastline of Resurrection Bay to Tonsina Creek. As we kayak, we are looking for sea ducks, diving birds, eagles, porpoise, harbor seals and sea lions. Depending on the time of the salmon run, you may also see salmon fighting their way upstream at Tonsina Creek! Stretch your legs, explore the ghost tree forest, skip rocks, and enjoy the pristine surroundings at Tonsina Point. After exploring the beach, having a snack and hydrating, we kayak along the coastline and return to Lowell Point.
Once back at A60N office we will cross the bridge over Clear Creek salmon stream adjacent to our shop to the Gold Panning location. There you will meet our gold panning guide and receive a bag of paydirt to start learning the panning process.
