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

Did the Land & Sea 3 Day kayaking trip with Paul as our guide. We were impressed with his knowledge of Kachemak Bay and its wildlife, as well as his mad cooking skills. Very relaxed pace between our overnight locations. Seriously gorgeous scenery. Paul even took us up a river outlet to see tons of salmon post-spawning. Such a great... More

Our party of 4 enjoyed a 3/4 day paddle around Yukon Island with our guide Brad. The staff in the office was friendly, boat ride out to the island was full capacity but smooth. The guides for all parties seem a tad short on patience when it came to gearing everyone and their kayaks up, but once we were in... More

We kayaked with sea otters, while bald eagles swooped down to pluck fish from the ocean near our boats. True North folks were very professional, knowledgeable and fun.
