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

A highlight of our 3 week trip to Alaska. We stayed 3 nights. Great cabin nestled in forest overlooking bay (and resident bald eagles and sea otters). Walks to be had or just relaxing. Sauna not to be missed. Excellent kayaking trip, plenty of wildlife, complete with delicious salmon lunch. Dorla and Rick are generous with their time, knowledge and... More

Called Seaside Aventures a couple days before we wanted to go out (we wanted to make sure the weather would cooperate) and a very personable man picked up the phone, which I found out was Rick, the owner. We had wanted to do a half-day tour, but he was adamant that once you factor in the water taxi over to... More

I highly recommend spending a day kayaking with Rick and Dorle! They genuinely love showing people their "back yard," and are so excited to share all their vast knowledge and experience. This is not a power kayaking day! You are led gently through the rich marine habitat and discover lots of wildlife, including a trio of eagles with their young,... More

This was one of the best things we did on our 10 day trip to Alaska. We were fortunate enough to get Rick and Dorla all to ourselves on a day of perfect weather. They are friendly, patient, and thoroughly knowledgeable about the environment and wildlife of the area. Lunch was simple but delicious and included a soup using plants... More
