If you weren't aware, a majority of Homer closes after Labor Day. I really really wanted to go kayaking in Homer and Allison, the owner of True North, took my father and me with just 2 other people despite her base camp already being broken down. She was SO nice and accommodating and I was STOKED to get to go.... More

We had a nice kayak trip with True North. The owners daughter was very sweet. Our guide, I wish I could remember his name, was great. You could really feel his love and passion for what he does and where he lives. We saw porpoise, bald eagles and sea stars. It did rain while we were out there. If there... More

Allison and the entire team were amazing. We had the best time and Alison was so great to pair up with my mom who had never kayaked before... I think they both had a great time. I highly recommend any of their trips.

We called True North in hopes of salvaging our day when our bear viewing trip was cancelled at the last minute and we were feeling a bit down in the dumps. Jan was incredibly kind on the phone, and was able to organize a customized 3/4 day kayaking trip for our family (Yukon Island/Elephant Rock). We ended up having an... More

Everything about the trip was very professional. The office staff, boat captain and guides made the excursion a very pleasant and memorable experience for our family. I would highly recommend it.

This was our second time with alison and her gang at True North. This time we brought our ten year old twins. It was the vacation of a life time, Alison took us on a half day trip and booked cabins for us and some friends on some nearby islands. We saw otters, bald eagles, whales. True North took care...

We did the all-day kayak tour, and had our own private guide for the trip. Anders was very informative and friendly. We paddled in Sadie Cove and around Yukon Island. We saw more eagles than we did other people, even though it was July 4th weekend. This is one of the best kayak trips I have done in Alaska or... More

I've been using True North for two years for our kayak trips in Katchemak Bay. They are professional, educators, and have a great safety record. Learn about and see marine life while being active on the water!

This is a trip well worth taking. Don't let the price detour you. We have taken a large number of friends and family over the years out kayaking with this company. Staff are extremely knowledgeable, equipment is top of the line and its simply a great day on the water. I was never one much for kayaking until I went... More

Please note this is a review cancelled and corrected after the tour operator contacted me. I'll keep my original review, then add the clarifications. This became a 4 because I appreciated the operator contacting me and trying to fix the fixable issues and clarify others. I generally don't rely on tour operators for my trips, enjoying my freedom totally, but... More
