Crashing waterfalls, snow-capped mountains, and breathtaking glaciers surround Resurrection Bay. Sailing, Inc., an instructional academy and member of the American Sailing Association, calls this slice of the Alaskan coastline its home. On the water, certified instructors teach beginners' to advanced courses, covering everything from navigating moderate sea conditions in basic keelboat classes to sailing past a boat's bedtime in nighttime advanced coastal cruising classes. The captains occasionally take breaks from instruction to charter sailing tours. On these excursions, wind sweeps through passengers' hair as they explore deserted coves or wait for the warm glow of a midnight sunset to turn the boat back into a pumpkin.

The instructors at Alaska Kayak Academy share their love for sea kayaking by training and leading adventures in Alaska's rivers and coastal waters. Scheduled year-round, classes range from basic paddling instruction to deep-water rescue techniques. Guided trips cater to all levels of paddlers, with day trips along salmon runs and through the glacial ice of Prince William Sound. Rentals equip paddlers for independent exploration, refining skills, and humming quietly to themselves in peace. Alaska Kayak Academy also encompasses a store, where staff advise on gear such as new and used kayaks and the trendiest way to don a life jacket.
