A friend and I decided to do something different on our cruise in Alaska and it was totally amazing! I was a little skepticle with putting on the wetsuit but it was easier than expected and the instructors were there to help as well. The snorkeling itself was stellar and there were several types of marine life to see. Should... More

If you are looking for an Alaskan experience that not everyone has done, this is it! Everyone will think you are crazy, but that is half the fun! It was great fun, a wonderful memory, and not nearly as cold as you would think. The guides are knowledgeable and helpful. I highly recommend!

Don't be afraid of the water!!!! You get a warm wet suit and lots of help getting it fitted. They provide weights for those who wish to free dive, which I happily used. The weights are no risk, they counteract the buoyancy of the wetsuit. This a super cool chance to observe cold water sea life!!! Great opportunity!!

Definitely an adventure, snorkeling in Alaska. The guides at Snorkel Alaska were extremely friendly, nice, and patient as they witnessed our clumsy attempts to don 7 mm wetsuits, hoods, gloves, booties in preparation for snorkeling in 61 (or was it 57?) degree water. That said, being from the West Coast and used to the cold Pacific waters, I didn't think... More

We love snorkeling in Hawaii, but even in the summer we get cold and wear wet suit jackets. We thought it would be an adventure and they promised us we wouldn't get cold. Getting into the thick wet suit takes work, but they anticipate the need for help and are happy to assist everyone in getting tucked in. The ratio... More

We did this excursion last week with two adults and two kids. This was my nine year old's first successful snorkeling trip (failed on our last cruise in Mexico when she was 6). All of us came away thinking this was the best shore excursion we have done. It was just a short drive to the dive shop then a... More

We chose this as our excursion with Celebrity Cruises. Definitely worth the money! The employees obviously love what they do and made sure that everyone was comfortable in the water. They also brought up sea life that were a little deeper than we were able to see.

We visited Ketchikan by cruise ship and decided to snorkel. We had a wonderful day. I will first start by saying we did NOT get cold. The wet suits kept us nice and warm. The staff was very friendly and had good knowledge of the underwater sea life in the area. They frequently brought up sea life to touch and... More

My family and friends thought I was crazy, but I did it anyway. We were picked up at our cruise ship and taken to the snorkeling site. Only ten minutes away. The whole adventure with our ride back to the ship was about 3 hours. One hour in the water. There was only one negative: the wet suit. taking it... More

This trip was available through the Celebrity Solstice cruise package on our Ketchikan port call at a reasonable price. The transfer guides who where in place at the proper time, were professional and courteous. They drove us to the Dive Shop and gave us a tour enroute of the area. When we arrived at Mountain Point, Snorkel Alaska we were... More
