We were just a small group of 5 paddlers with our guide Curtis. You drive out to Yukon Island first with a motorboat and get ouftitted there with everything you need. The whole staff is friendly and very helfpul. Curtis was an excellent guide with us first time kayakers and we felt very safe out there. We saw eagles and... More

We went tandem kayaking on a rainy day but we were perfectly outfitted with waterproof pants, jackets, and boots. Once we got to Yukon island we were told all the ins and outs for kayaking that made sense even to amateurs. Our guide, Aiden, was very friendly and helped us get into the boats which surprisingly stayed dry during the... More

True North is excellent in every way. We took an overnight kayaking/camping trip with them to Tutka Bay, and then they arranged for us to spend the night at a cabin on Hespeth Island. Our guide, the kayaks, the camping equipment, the food, the location, the cabin - wow, it was perfection. There were 4 of us, and Jan was... More

We had a group that varied in age and ability. Allison was so friendly and accommodating and really went above and beyond to make sure everyone was safe and enjoying the trip. The vistas were outstanding and Yukon Island is so pristine and beautiful. We saw eagles, otter(including a mom calling out to her baby) and jelly fish amongst the... More

True North runs half day and full day kayak trips off of Homer spit. The outfit is friendly and professional. They run you across from the spit to a nearby island where they gear you up and get you into your kayak. Our trip ran from 9am to 1 pm but by the time you get there, gear up, get... More

Allison and Gus were amazing guides around Yukon Island. I really am a birder so don't really care about geology but they captured my attention! Lovely tour... great boats and service-- so friendly and safe and enjoyable.

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.
