Turnagain Kayak, LLC
We are an educational kayak company delivering premier paddle sports instruction designed to enhance your Alaskan adventure! We offer classes fit for everyone from absolute beginner to the most experienced water warrior. Our courses provide opportunities for new paddlers to learn and for experienced paddlers to refine skills while working with American Canoe Association (ACA) and British Canoe Union (BCU) certified instructors to provide comprehensive coaching in a safe and fun environment. We offer workshops for skills assessments, trip leading, and instructor certification, as well as shorter single-day paddleboard trips for those who just want to experience Alaska from the water. Don’t have time for a water sport adventure? Visit us at our coffeehouse in historic Hope; Alaska’s best preserved gold rush town. Gold was discovered in Hope in 1888 and saw a population of 3,000 gold seekers before Anchorage ever existed. We are less than a two-hour drive from Alaska’s largest city, Anchorage, along the scenic Seward Highway. In our shop, you’ll often find groups of bikers stopping in for espresso, excited rafters grabbing a quick bite before a trip down Six Mile Creek, and anxious hikers gearing up for the 3,630-foot trek to Hope Point. We serve everything from a classic sludge cup to paninis and organic, fresh fruit smoothies. We pride ourselves on serving the best coffee in Alaska, using Kaladi Brothers beans and organic milks (including almond and soy). Committed to using the best ingredients, we want to provide a quality meal and amazing coffee to fuel your Alaskan adventure! If you’ve made it to Hope and want to explore everything the area has to offer, we can also outfit you with a fat tire bike and all of the safety and repair equipment you’ll need to hit the trail or take a cruise through town. Hope offers the perfect location for our clients and guests to launch their Alaska adventure!
