FAT BIKE BEACH TOURS

  • Book your tour in advance to ensure the availability of bikes and a guide.
  • Check the tides for the day you wish to book on the NOAA website here.
    DOUBLE AND TRIPLE CHECK THAT YOU ARE LOOKING AT THE RIGHT AREA, DAY, AND YEAR
  • Ideally, tours begin 2 hours before the low tide or 3 hours after the high tide.
  • There are a few small stream crossings on most routes, be prepared for wet feet; bring a spare pair of wool socks.  
  • Tours go on, rain or shine.  We have some gear to outfit you, but it's assumed you'll have rain gear with you.  It's coastal Alaska and rain is inevitable, bring appropriate layers.  
  • Your guide will have mid-ride snacks and extra water, however, it is up to each tour participant to bring adequate food and water for the duration of the trip.
