We had a private group of 8, which Howard accomodated with a private tour. The tour was slow-paced, and a great way to see wildlife - we saw whales, deer, starfish, eagles, seals...everything. Everyone had a great time, and it is much more pesrsonal and rewarding than the tours offered through the ships. Afterwards, we enjoyed some beer on teh... More

We had a group of six and we loved the one on one kayaking experience! Howard and Laura were very knowledgeable and fun to be with. I would definitely recommend kayaking with them. We were the only ones out on the water and loved every minute of it. It was a perfect day!

I booked a tour for four people before we left for our Alaskan cruise. Booking was quick and easy and competitive to the tours the cruise offered. We had the last tour of the season and it could not have been anymore perfect. Howard picked us up at the pier and took us to the dock where we geared up.... More

My husband and I booked this kayaking trip through the company's personal website instead of choosing an excursion through the cruise ship, we are so happy we did! Laura picked us up at our ship and took us and one other couple on a wonderful kayaking adventure! Her passion for nature was apparent as she told us about the sea... More

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...
