We had a delightful trip with just the two of us. We were able to hold starfish, jelly fish and have a relaxing tour. This was not physically hard even for spending three hours. Very informational with many opportunities to see sea life, bald eagles and learn about Alaaka's sea life. It was extremely helpful that they picked us up... More

We like to book our tours with private companies when on cruises, and we were very happy we booked with Ketchikan Kayak Co. Howard met my husband and I at the cruise ship, we picked up another family of three, and set off to the marina. We were outfitted with all the gear we needed and had a great time... More

Laura and Howard are wonderful. Beginners will enjoy this trip as well experienced travelers. The small group size makes this trip the best. Laura takes time to show you life below and above the waterline. We booked directly through their website. We had the late time and got back in plenty of time for the cruise. They know the business.... More

Wonderful Trip!!! It was my first time on a kayak, and Howard and his staff made me feel right at ease. We had a small group of 6. The tour was tailored toward what we wanted to see and our ability to maneuver the kayak. We also booked directly through Ketchikan Kayak Co. instead of through the cruise. Laura met... More

Howard and Laura were very informative and knowledgeable about the local marine wildlife and the area. We saw many Starfish with vibrant colors! Just beautiful! We also were lucky enough to see several Bald Eagles and their Juvenile chicks. Many, many photos were taken along our kayak journey! They picked us up and returned us to our ship as promised!...

Howard and his team are excellent. And local. We had a family of 16 kayakers- they accommodated us all. Were very flexible- in fact they agreed to drop us off at the Totem Bight park for a quick self-guided tour on the way back to the cruise ship so we could get the kayaking and the totem poles in on...

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
