Having never kayaked in my life, I was a bit apprehensive about trying it out. However, after speaking to Dorla before making our reservations, it was clear that we would be in good hands. And we were! My sister-in-law and I had a lovely leisurely day on the bay. We watched otters eat mussels and were close enough to hear... More

I, too, did a lot of research on kayak tours in the Homer area and chose this one because of the educational aspect and honestly, the idea of gathering stuff to make lunch along the way sounded like fun! I really can't add any more details than what you can read in the other great reviews posted; I can only... More

I had researched various kayaking tours in Homer and chose Seaside Adventures for their seemingly sincere love for the environment...and their desire to educate. I was not disappointed! Rick was very helpful and friendly when I first booked the tour....I felt very welcome and looked forward to meeting him and Dorla. The day of my tour (I was the only... More

I don't know when exactly I realized we had picked the best kayak tour, but it was definitely early on in the day. Dave, the owner of the water taxi we hired (through Rick and Dorla), had his dog Pika along for the day, so that was a good start. Homer is awash in friendly dogs, and Pika is among... More

This is the second time we have gone out with Rick of A Seaside Adventure. It remains a highlight of our trip. Rick has a great deal to offer and knows the area - after all, it is his front yard as he lives on the bay year round. We saw a great many sea otters, lots of unusual birds,... More

From the moment we arrived we were taken care of. It was a really low tide when the water taxi dropped us off and Rick and his assistant Woofers brought us Wellingtonboots to keep our feet dry. Our 7 year old son was already captivated by the sunflower starfish that Rick showed us and we made our way up to... More

We were excited to head off to explore Kachemak Bay by sea kayak with Rick from A Seaside Adventure. This would our second sea kayaking tour in Alaska. Their base of operations/home is located across Kachemak Bay, so before kayaking you get to start with a great water taxi boat ride across the bay. We located Ashore Water Taxi on... More

Spending the day with Rick and Dorla in what he describes as his "back yard" was a highlight of our vacation. The most relaxing and amazing day. We were definetly novice kayakers but they made sure we started our day with confidence. Once in the bay we spent they day viewing all the wildlife, otters, seals, eagles, other various birds...

What a fantastic way to spend 6 hours of your day,kayaking around the small islands around Tutka Bay looking at Eagles,Otters,Sea Stars,Sun stars and all sorts of other marine life. Despite the persistant rain that was falling all during our trip (enough to make me almost not use my camera) it was a great experience with Rik and Dorla using... More

I hate to be the first person to give less than a 5 star review, but feel that I must share my experience. I chose this company for our kayaking trip because of the good reviews and because I thought I would prefer being with a smaller group. The owners are very nice and well-intentioned, but the trip was a... More
