Juneau and Douglas line the northeast and southwest sides of Gastineau Channel. Paddling around the town docks is of only questionable interest. On the Juneau side there are huge cruise ships alongside the city docks or anchored in the channel. Things are more peaceful on the Douglas side. Farther down channel (southeast) on either side, the density of commercial operations and homes drops off rapidly, and you soon find yourself with a scenic shoreline.
