We chose to book our 4 person kayak tour directly through Ketchikan Kayak Co instead of through the cruise as it was a longer, more informative, and more intimate (smaller group) tour than with the cruise line. Our guide was great and let us go where we wanted and spend a good amount of time at each stop. We had... More

We happened to go when the tide was the lowest it would be all year and so we were able to see clearly to the bottom in some areas. We saw sea cucumbers, sea stars, sun stars, jellyfish, other fish. The day was beautiful and sunny and the water was gorgeous. Our guides, Howard and Laura were so patient and... More

On an overcast, somewhat windy, but not rainy day, we took a kayak tour in tandem kayaks with a group of about 7 with 2 guides. We were mostly along the shore and were able to see lots of things in the water and on the rocks like different jellies (jelly fish), sea stars, anemones, sea snails (think that was... More

This was my families first time kayaking and we had a blast. All the staff was very friendly and patient and made sure we felt comfortable. It was very relaxing and slow paced. We never felt rushed and we could take our time and really enjoy the experience. I highly suggest if you want to go kayaking to go with... More

Last summer my husband and I took a princess cruise to alaska. We did one of the kayak tours on eagle island. What a spectacular day and dozens of bald eagles for viewing.

My family of four from Chicago had an amazing day with Laura on this kayak tour. We got lucky and had a warm, partly sunny day (rare in Ketchikan). Laura was very intelligent and knowledgable about the marine life we saw. I highly recommend this activity when visiting Ketchikan. Also allows for time to shop in their cute downtown area... More

We booked this tour after reading the good reviews. It was a raining day (it's normal there) but they provided rain gear so we didn't get wet. For kayaking itself, it's very nice and relaxing, unfortunately not much wildlife to see or we didn't see much. We saw a eagle nest from distance, some starfish and snails on rocks, that's... More

We were on an extended family Alaska Cruise in June, and my MIL, SIL & I went kayaking while the guys went fishing. The Ketchikan Kayak Co was awesome! I booked online for all three of us a few months ahead, and they were waiting for us at the dock when we arrived. The girls driving us were so friendly... More

This was our 2nd time going out with Ketchikan Kayak Company. They are very professional and fun. The day would prove to be a little rainy, (it is Ketchikan, after all). The suited us up with rain gear, and life vests. Howard, the owner, gave us a little on shore lesson, then we practiced a bit in the harbor. Then,... More
