    Default kayaking in Juneau, Sitka, Ketchikan

    I will be in Juneau, Sitka, and Ketchikan the week of Sept 22, and have not kayaked before. Nevertheless, based on my brother's description I believe I will be fine.
    Which of these locations is the most scenic place to kayak?
    What is the likely experience at this time of year with sea kayaking.
    Would it be better for me to kayak at the lake at Mendenhall glacier?
    Any information would be most helpful.

    As Will said - they're all equally beautiful. Be aware that late September weather can be wet and windy anywhere in SE Alaska. Mendenhall Lake is COLD! (35-39F). It's a pretty place to kayak for a few hours, but you do not want to take a swim there.

    Probably Sitka. More small island groups and bays in the local vicinity.
