The Haines to Skagway trip appeals to a lot of folks, but it should only be attempted by experienced kayakers. The distance is not great, only about 17 miles, but the way is not always kayaker friendly. It is a scenic trip going either north or south through a fjord with views of snowfields and distant glaciers. The abrupt walls that rise from the waters of Taiya Inlet offer few opportunities to haul out or camp. This can be a problem because the constricted topography tends to focus winds, making for challenging paddling. It is quite reasonable to paddle one way and use the Auk Nu or the AMHS ferry for the other half of the trip. Trip Highlights: Scenic views—especially Sawmill Creek Waterfall, which cascades down the east side of Taiya Inlet across from Taiya Point.
