We booked this excursion through princess cruises. The day we arrived to Ketchikan it was raining all morning and my husband kept saying how miserable snorkeling was going to be, and he was SO wrong! From the beginning the guides told us we chose the right excursion, since we were going to be wet anyway and it wouldn't get cancelled.... More

How many people can say they snorkeled in Alaska... Well i can and it was fun! First let me say Fred and his team are simply amazing, they are friendly, dedicated and knowledgeable to say the least. You may be thinking brr.. well that's not the case - the suits are so good - you are almost too warm. They... More

This trip was my favorite thing I did in Alaska. Our guides Luke and Shelby were very fun and informative. I was very hesitant about snorkeling because I get cold in 65 degree weather, but those wet suits kept all of us warm the entire time. The wildlife was great! We held sea cucumbers, sea urchins, starfish, and saw lots... More

Having only snorkeled tropical locations, this was a very different experience. The water was very choppy and it was pouring rain, but the Snorkel Alaska staff still helped us into our wetsuits and gear and got us out into the water. It was somewhat difficult to see due to a large amount of algae but the staff still pulled up... More

Wow, what an experience. No one believes me until I show them the pictures! Now, don;t go thinking you can just float around. This excursion takes some work. From squeezing into your 7mm wet suit (which will keep you plenty warm, trust me), to waddling down the short path (no one looks good in a full wet suit, sorry) to... More

Snorkeling sounds fun right? Well, when you are visiting Alaska its not the first thing I would think to do, but I'm really happy we did. The atmosphere of the tour was very relaxed, and our guides Luke, Maria, and Ellen did a great job making you feel safe while still letting you explore on your own. Great experience, highly... More

Organized and professional outfit but a very relaxed atmosphere all the same. Special props to Shelby and Luke, our instructors.

On our cruise in June 2015 I went snorkling in Alaska. Who would of thought. We had a very small group and the whole Snorkel Alaska team was fantastic. Special thanks to Maria, Kurt and Erin. I had a great time and learned alot about sealife in Alaska. Kurt and Maria kept us busy looking, holding and telling us about... More

My husband and I have done this excursion not once but twice. We have snorkeled in Hawaii and were colder there than in Alaska. It's an experience most people can't say they've done. We loved it! You see a lot and the instructors are amazing! Do it, you won't regret it.

I recently had the opportunity to visit Ketchican, Alaska and it's sites while I was there for a niece's wedding. I wanted to try snorkeling, kayaking and zip lines. I had the fortune to be directed to this business for the snorkeling. Fred and his staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful! The young woman guide even kept her cool... More
