Rainbow Tours features a 7 hour fully narrated tour to the community of Seldovia. We will depart at 10:30 with our first stop at Gull Island seabird rookery, home to 15,000 seabirds. This island features 8 pelagic seabird species that come there every year to nest. Bald eagles and other species of birds can also be seen frequently throughout the summer months. Truly a birder's paradise!
Then we will venture towards the Eldred Passage where many sea otters, bald eagles and ducks can be seen. Throughout your tour the sights and sounds of Kachemak Bay will surround you. Your captain and crew continuously narrate to you the history, geography and wildlife biology pertaining to Kachemak Bay. Our trained and educated crew will be there to provide information and do their best to ensure your questions and curiosities are fulfilled. The Rainbow Tours family pride themselves by providing you with the highest level of comfort during your voyage. From the passage we then head to the community of Seldovia. Humpback and Orca sightings can be seen, however; this is time dependent due to the presence of their food resource. When we arrive in Seldovia we will open up time to explore this beautiful and quaint Alaskan community. You'll find restaurants and cafes for lunch, trails to hike, boardwalks to stroll and always shopping. You may even catch a salmon from the slough. Departure will be at 4 pm to Homer with an arrival time of 5:30. Be aware that if we see whales at any time we may be delayed.
