We booked a cruise to Alaska and I almost never book through the cruise for our excursions. I like to save my $$ for other things. I called and and book this directly through their website - very easy. We are 3 adults and 1 child. We had a blast! The tour guides were helpful, informative, and patient. My daughter... More

Our family group of 16 was picked up just off the dock and brought by van to the Kayak Co. There were bathrooms available right away. The friendly staff helped us with our rain gear, handed out paddles and it was down to the launching dock. They helped us onto the kayaks after instructions, and we were give more instructions...

We were in Ketchikan for our first stop on our Alaskan cruise and we decided to book a morning tour with Ketchikan Kayak Company. (We purchased this in advance, not through the cruise ship.) We were picked up promptly at the end of the pier and whisked to the dock about twenty minutes away. Our group was split into two... More

Howard and the staff were great from pick-up to drop-off. The family enjoyed all of the eagles we got to see throughout the 2+ hours of kayaking. There were only a few other people in the tour - much better than a cruise-ship organized tour if you prefer small groups!

Had such a great time with Ketchikan Kayak Co. The whole excursion from beginning to end was a BLAST! We saw more eagles than I have ever seen in one place and got up close and personal with starfish and a various assortment of marine life. Howard and his staff were knowledgeable, informative and friendly. It was truly a highlight... More

We had our own family group of 6 with our guide Devin, who was terrific. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, personable, interesting and had a good read on us. He shared a lot of knowledge about where we were, what we were seeing and the state and area in general. He was very flexible in what we what we wanted... More

Howard was an excellent guide to see Alaska nature from the seat of a Kayak. The trip was easy; we saw tons of eagles; a seal came to visit; and Howard's commentary of the true Alaska was informative and enjoyable. The whole family had a wonderful experience.

My family and I were on a cruise ship and I am so happy I was able to get in with a tour at Ketchikan Kayak Company! Devon and Howard were fantastic tour guides and we had the best time! The best part is the small group attention and how much we were able to see. Starfish, bald eagles, jelly... More

This is definitly doable for most people. The ebike gives you the choice of a regular, man powered ride or a very easy motor powered ride with no pedaling needed. The hike is also fairly easy. A few short inclines, some steps, some uneven ground and beautiful scenery. I also appreciated learning about the natural habitat of Alaska from our... More

You'd be wise to sidestep the cruise offerings and reserve a kayaking experience directly with Howard and his crew at Ketchikan Kayak. They pick you up conveniently right at the cruise dock and whisk you off via van with a purposely small group north along a scenic drive to their home marina. Devon was friendly, engaging and informative as he... More
