Growing up in Washington state we learned to not let weather stop us from doing the things we loved- Alaska is the very same. In Alaska (and many other wilderness places), the secret is to dress in layers- so that you can add or remove clothes to adjust your comfort level as the temperatures rises or falls (which it does- sometimes daily!)
Your layers start with a pair of long underwear (top and bottom), then quick drying pants, followed by a waterproof rain shell (rain gear) - that covers your body. Good socks and Sturdy, waterproof footwear completes the package. Any trip to Alaska should include reliable rain gear. We will carry sets on the fishing boats, but you'll want to bring your own for all the time out of the boat for the balance of your day, and for our evening activities! Good hats, sunglasses and lightweight gloves are plus as well. Cotton jeans are not a great way to go- stay wet forever and feel terrible doing it.
Quick drying “Travel Pants” that zip off to make shorts are one of our travel secrets (Your favorite Levi’s are OK at home, but not our recommendation for the wilds of Alaska- they don’t keep you warm when wet and take forever to dry!) Our second secret is a down or synthetic vest- keeps the core warm with minimal weight and packing space.
PRO TIP: Be sure to bring either a small backpack or small dry bag to keep some extra clothes and raingear in when you are out enjoying our great daily activities. (It can also keep dry your your wallet, phone, water bottle and a snack).
