As our day started with early morning hours and a cold rain I couldn't exactly say our hopes or spirits were high. But after getting into our gear, listening to Howard's directions we were on our way anyway. What do you know? Due to the excitement in the air and the pleasure in our hearts the rain and cold soon... More

Ketchikan Kayak Co. has the most personable and laid back staff of any business on the island. We booked a couple of kayaks on short notice and it wasn't a problem. Howard greeted us at Knudson Cove on a bright saturday afternoon, outfitted my girlfriend and I with all the usual gear, and sent us on our way. The service... More

Getting out on the water on any day is always better that the best day at work. Getting out and seeing a bald eagle swoop down from a tree and grab a fish within 30 metres of my kayak was outstanding. Even though it rained most of the time we were out that didn't 'dampen' my experience.

A kayak tour through Ketchikan Kayak Co. is a great way to see genuine Alaska nature away from the cruise crowds. I was picked up from the cruiseship dock at Ketchikan and driven about 20-30 minutes north to Knudson Cove. Howard, the owner, personally led the tour. We kayaked from the dock along a rocky shore where a number of... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time on this Kayak Excursion and appreciate all the reviews on tripadvisor. We booked this Excursion the night before our ship set sail while we still had internet access at the hotel. Pre-payment was not required. They picked us up at the boat, and transported us to the cove, away from the cruise... More

Four of us were on an Alaskan cruise stopping in Ketchikan in September, 2013. We planned ahead and reserved an experience with Ketchikan Kayak Co via the web in advance of our trip -- a very good decision! They met us at the ship, drove us to the cove. They decked us out with waterproof gear and stored our handbags.... More

What a great tour ! My wife and I had kayaked several times before, but never at a place like this. Very up to date, well maintained equipment. There were only four of us along with Howard so it was almost like having our own private guide. Everything about this company was first rate and I would HIGHLY recommend it.

We were very well taken care of by Ketchikan Kayak tours. We booked our tour on the website before we left Australia. We chose them as we prefer to support local business rather than bigger companies associated with the cruise line we were on. I'm sure they're good too but we prefer to spend our money with locals to keep... More

The highlight of our trip to Alaska was our kayak trip with Laura. Howard met us directly in front of our ship and got us ready for our trip. She was so knowledgeable about the environment and took great care of us throughout the trip. We were so excited about our trip and would suggest this company to anyone looking... More
