We had such a good time snorkeling in Alaska. My husband and I have snorkeled quite a bit in Mexico and the Caribbean, but this is an entirely different experience. We had the opportunity to interact with starfish, urchins, and my very personal favorite, sea cucumbers (and some bald eagles)! To make the adventure a little more strenuous, we both... More

Just to get some things out of the way before I start my review. This is not Caribbean snorkeling the visibility is not the best and it may be raining and might be overcast. This is snorkeling in Alaska! The adventure stared with a quick ride from the port to the shop. Along the way a guide went over putting... More

Boy Scout Troop 248 from University Place, Washington was traveling through Alaska in July and had the pleasure of going snorkeling. It was amazing and the expertise and generosity of Snorkel Alaska and their staff was incredible. The boys named this as one of the top experiences they had and it was awesome to watch these young men get to... More

The underwater world we saw was more than expected. So many different fish and creatures. The staff was unbelievably helpful and fun. The guided portions where starfish, sea cucumbers and other creatures were held and discussed were nice. The water was much warmer than expected. Be prepared - this tour is not for folks who are couch potatoes or poor... More

The employees provided excellent guidance to the diverse group of snorkelers. Our group had people who had never snorkeled to a dive master, the employees did an excellent job of explaining and walking everyone through the equipment and tips to putting on the wet-suits. The staff was knowledgeable about the area, the sea creatures and the eco system. This is... More

I wasn't sure what to expect Snorkeling in Alaska. It turned out to be one of the best days of our cruise. We saw all kinds of sea stars, see cucumbers, fish, giant schools of Mackerel, Bull Kelp, and so much more. The guides were very helpful putting on your gear, helping you in the water, and locating all kinds... More

I've been snorkeling in Cancun and Kona and this was the best snorkeling experience I've had. I signed up because my family was going fishing, but I wasn't expecting much. All the guides were great and gave super instructions every step along the way. The equipment was great. The visibility in the water was good. I got a great underwater... More

We were on the Disney Wonder and this was our Ketchikan excursion. Great experience. Staff was knowledgeable and helpful especially when getting us into wetsuits. They all knew a great deal about wildlife. Highly recommend. Never cold in water.

This has to quickly become a priority while in Alaska! The staff were excellent, 4 fully trained and certified staff took us out. That was about one for every 4 of us. The water was cool, but not to us. The equipment was in excellent shape. There is no need to be an excellent swimmer. Even if you have never... More
