What a great 1st time sea kayaking experience. From the pick-up to the drop-off and in between, I was well attended to and taken care of. The guides were great - I believe Luke and Rainee were my group's leads - and they not only showed up some amazing purple, orange, and nearly yellow starfish, we saw a large bald eagles' nest and even a sea lion. The water was perfect and so was the experience.

We spent a wonderful rainy morning kayaking around the bay and got to see eagles, starfish, seals and even some salmon jumping. Our guide, Abby, was terrific and safety was a top priority. I was impressed with the ease of communication with this company. They provided waterproof gear and skirts for the kayaks that kept us nice and dry.

Just returned from Alaska and this excursion was easily the highlight of those we took. We were lucky enough to have a small group and Abby as our guide. She was knowledgable and tailored the experience on the water for each person. The setting was beautiful and far enough out of town to get a true taste of Ketchikan. We saw eagles, deer and a variety of sea life.

The equipment, facilities and shuttles used were also top notch and the staff was professional. Even if you only have a few hours to spare in Ketchikan, this kayaking trip is more than worth it.

This was a wonderful trip and a big part was the guide-Murph. I was lucky enough to be the only guest on my trip so I had Murph all to myself. He did the heavy part of the kayaking and was so strong and capable. He did everything so that I could experience as much nature as possible. Things like getting close to a few of the islands so he could tell me about the sea life and show me the beautiful purple and orange sea stars, the tiny jellyfish and the limpets, things I wouldn't have noticed or gotten close enough to see on my own. We also were treated to eagles flying overhead, sea lions barking in the sound and a trio of seals frolicking in front of us.

The scenery was beautiful, the raingear kept me dry and I felt safe at all times. Do yourself a favor and take this expedition!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2017

Amazing ! Highly recommended, and Sasha our tour guide was very knowledgeable of the area, the marine life, and Eagle Island. We got some great photos and really enjoyed ourselves.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

Even in the rain this was a fantastic trip. The guide/van driver was friendly and fun. The staff was concerned for our safety. After wind conditions picked up and made the crossing back to base a bit iffy, they had a boat come pick us up on the leeward side of the island. Will definitely recommend this one to anyone going to Alaska.

Greg was an amazing and fun tour guide. We saw several sea lions, LOTS of eagles and even had an up close and personal show of 7-8 eagles fighting for a fish. Amazing tour!

This was a great day - Sean was my guide and he was very patient with my novice kayaking ways! he did most of the work, too, but didn't seem to mind too much...the equipment was great and the whole staff were very helpful and informative about the area and my day on the water.
I would HIGHLY recommend this outfit and do it again myself in a heartbeat!
Thanks K.T. and Sean and everyone - it was a memorable day in Ketchikan!!
