I took my son and his cousin (who had never really snorkeled) and we had a blast. We snorkel often in Florida and the Florida Keys so saying this was totally worth it should be taken in that context. We saw so many beautifully colored sea stars, sea cucumbers, sea urchin, kelp beds and even a wolf eel. The guides... More

This was a great experience. Wasn't sure what to expect but was well worth it. Guides were so helpful,patient, and very knowledgable. We were not given a lot of advise on the ship on what to bring or what to expect but from doing this I now know to just wear your bathing suit and bring a dry set of... More

My biggest fear on this trip was being cold. The hardest part of the trip was surviving being in the suit until I was in the water. The staff was great and assisted anyone who needed help. The sea life was beautiful and when you stopped to just float and watch, it was amazing what you had missed when you... More

This was an Amazing Experience!!! I was out with Cassie, Elly (Ylenia), & Jonathan on July 10th, 2014. Getting the wet suit on was a bit of a workout but not as bad as I was expecting (after reading the other reviews). As long as you listened to the instructions and followed them you'll be fine! Try the gloves on... More

A terrific excursion . Very warm for all those who think its cold. Everyone on my tour was sweating since the wetsuits are so thick. The tour guides were extremely helpful and knowledgable. Do not miss this trip. The underwater sights are more beutiful than any and all tropical reefs. Iam a diver and snorkeler, this by far was one... More

My daughters chose this excursion, and being Floridians, water temperature was a concern. However, we were pleasantly surprised to find ourselves nice and warm in the 7mm wetsuits, despite the cold water. In fact, the hardest part of the whole experience was putting the wetsuits on! Our guides Shelby, Corey, Jonathan, and Cassie were absolutely brilliant, walking us through everything... More

I'm not the best swimmer but love to snorkel. And snorkeling in Alaska just had the right sense of adventure I was looking for. I purchased this as a shore excursion from my cruise line for both my 14 year old son and me and neither of us was disappointed. I was a little nervous at first but the guides,... More

When my 11 year old picked "Snorkeling in Alaska" from a list of our cruise day excursions, I really thought I was in trouble…I figured, "Well, I can always get out of the water!" So the fact that I was the last one out of the water surprises me as much as anyone else! Instead of the freezing cold Alaska... More

This is the tour to do in Ketchikan. The company and staff are extremely professional and concientious. My daughter and I did this excursion in late June. My wife was supposed to go with us but decided to back out a day before we arrived in Ketichikan. I contacted Fred the day before about cancelling my wife's trip and there... More

How many people can say they snorkeled in Alaska?! The guides Corey, Austin, Cassie and Shelby did a great job of instructing us in a very fun and assuring manner. Wet suits kept us nice and warm in the water. Our guides did a wonderful job of pointing out and teaching us about sea life in the area. There were... More
