Very disappointing. Faulty equipment and inferior management!

What we thought would be a great adventure turned sour as the rear seat and one peddle in the kayak were broken and my husband, not having any support, could not properly sit up to row. I was in front having difficulty without his help thus ruining our experience The guide instructed her assistant to remove the kayak from inventory once we returned but didn't offer an apology nor compensation.

The trip was cancelled due to weather (wind) at the last minute although I heard from people later that other companies did run kayaks but stayed away from the glacier. Since it was my one chance to see the glacier it was disappointing that they did not offer some alternative

Exciting and challenging trip. Make sure the more experienced kayaker sits in the rear and controls the rudder. My husband and I usually take separate kayaks, but this time we weren't able to do so and met with some challenges going in a double. Thank you too Scott and Sequoia for making this a very pleasant trip. The face of the glacier is quite a distance from embarcation and the waterfall is even further. Be prepared to paddle at least 6 to 8 Miles if not more. Be prepared for very frigid water. Wear the boots and the overalls they give you and remember to bring biking or exercise gloves to help with the paddling. Bring an extra pair of socks for use after the trip. The entire trip was very organized and fun.

I went to this tour on my own while the rest of my family went on another excursion. I felt very comfortable right away with the group and all the people who worked with our group. Our guide was very good and knowledgeable about the area and the history. Sights were beautiful.

Beautiful surroundings. The glacier and icebergs were magnificent. No animals or birds seen. Guide offered little or no explanation. I had been told before booking we could walk by the waterfall this was not permitted. Less than 2 hours on the water, guide in a hurry to get everyone back. Very expensive for what it was. Snack-- some dip and a few crackers. Simply not worth the 179 per person.

Fantastic experience led by a fantastic guide - Rachel - I would do it again in a heartbeat. Up close view of the glacier and the waterfall, in the glacial lake it's an experience that we will never forget. My wife and I were in a tandem kayak which made several mile paddle trip all that much easier.
