Idaho Inlet, a deep bay that extends 12 miles south from South Passage, is “just around the corner” from Elfin Cove. In this remote location you are sure to see a lot of sea otters, Sitka black-tailed deer, and a few brown bears as you paddle along shore. In July and August this is a great area for pigging out on salmonberries, blueberries, and huckleberries. Trip Highlights: Remote area paddling with lots of solitude and opportunities to see a variety of animals.
