If you are looking for adventure in Alaska, this is the excursion you have been looking to do. The water was a balmy 62 degrees in late June; but, with the wet suits, you never noticed. Our guides were amazing and shared their considerable knowledge. We had an amazing time and would highly recommend Snorkel Alaska.

Definitely an interesting way to see a different side of Alaska. Crew was great very helpful and knowledgeable . However this is not like snorkeling in the caribbean. The suit is extremely thick. The water is rough and cold and there are several challenges such as extremely thick plant life, slippery surfaces, limited visibility. However if you are up to... More

My husband and I enjoyed this snorkel adventure. We were in the water for 1.5hrs and the staff were great.... diving down to bring things up for us to hold and took lots of photos. We were NOT cold at all.... the water was about 60F.

Crazy to say that I went snorkeling in Alaska when it was raining, it was about 45 degrees outside, and the water temp was not much higher than the mid 50's! And I loved every minute. We had two guides that were knowledgable and wonderful enough to pick up lots of fun things like starfish and sea cumbers off the... More

We did not know what to expect on this excursion, however we were pleasantly surprised and so happy to have experienced Snorkeling in Alaska...Ketchikan style. The tour guides for this operation were very well organized and explained everything in detail on what to expect. The most challenging part (but so funny) was putting the suit on! We have snorkelled in... More

We did the snorkeling in the month of July. Water temp was excellent Not cold. The crew was excellent, willing to help and maximized the experience. Don't expect a pacific or Caribbean snorkeling where you can see a nemo kind of aquarium but it's the experience that you snorkel in Alaska is worth telling to your peers and family at... More

We (my husband and myself) took this side-trip when our Alaskan Cruise stopped in Ketchikan. The tour was very well organized, the staff explained in detail how everything would proceed. The 'funny part' was watching everyone try to wiggle into the wet suits! The tour was fun and inclusive. It didn't matter if you were new to snorkeling or had... More
