Paddle to Seattle Team Interviewed on NPR

AMK was proud to sponsor documentary film makers Josh Thomas and J.J. Kelley  on their recent 1,200 mile kayaking expedition from Alaska to Seattle. Yesterday Josh Thomas was interviewed on NPR member station KTOO in Juneau.   Josh explains the challenges and highlights of the freshly completed adventure documentary, Paddle to Seattle: Journey through the Inside Passage.

Listen to the full interview on their website:


Paddle to Seattle: Journey through the Inside Passage is a feature documentary chronicling the progress of two intrepid adventurers paddling handmade wooden Pygmy kayaks from Alaska to Seattle.

The Inside Passage encompasses an enormous chain of islands while maintaining North America’s only rainforest 1,300-miles from Alaska to Northern Washington.   Encounters with grizzly bears are not uncommon.  The rain can fall for weeks uninterrupted.  Rich biodiversity makes room for surreal encounters with unexpected marine life.   The film presents interviews from peoples of the region, and a sense of humor provides genuine insights into the experience of two adventurers.
