We took the 3 1/2 hour kayak excursion as offered by our Norwegian Jewel Cruise; however, you can take advantage of this trip without being on a cruise. Our tour guides instructed us on safety in the tandem kayak and outfitted us with life jackets as well as a kayak skirt that kept us from getting wet as we were... More

SE Exposure is a first class operation. They took care of all our needs and made sure everyone was comfortable in the kayaks. It rained off and on during our tour, but we were dry in our rain gear and kayak skirt that kept the water out of the kayak. Our guides were very knowledgable and pointed out the wildlife... More

We are a family of four and were looking for something a bit different to do off of the cruise ship since we have been to Ketchikan before. My husband and I have zip lined and loved it so we thought we would take our daughters and have more fun together. It was cold and rainy at the cruise port... More

On the day we took our kayaking tour with Southeast Exposure, I suspect Ketchikan was receiving about half of its annual 13 feet of rain. It was my first time in a kayak and I was not sure what I was about to experience. I had a great time and am looking forward to the experience again. We were outfitted... More

We had a great time kayaking to Eagle Island. Most of us were first time Kayakers and a little nervous going in. Thanks to Abby and Andrew, they made it look easy. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our tour and also got to see the huge Bald Eagle nest at Eagle Island. I highly recommend them.

We booked the Eagle Islands Sea Kayaking Tour directly through Princess Cruise Line as an excursion in Ketchikan since we only had a short stay in the port and wanted to make sure we made it back in time. We enjoyed the transportation to the kayaking center, and upon arrival, geared up, stored our belongings, and got a quick sea... More

Excellent kayak outing, including professional friendly staff beautiful scenery, and good quality equipment. Highly recommended for those passing through Ketchikan for a day or two... Kayak tour for 3-5 hour during visit to Ketchikan, all kayaking equipment provided by company, can participate with only casual athletic clothes and camera for taking photos.

Enjoy the unique experience and don't forget to ask for Andrew as a guide, he was great! We loved our tours--you might even get lucky and see some Orcas!

Wow, we had high expectations and this experience, touring the islands in 4-person rubber outboard motor boats, surpassed everything we imagined it could be. Our guide Rob was fantastic, request him if you can, he's that good and will make sure you see treasures on land and sea you would have missed on your own! As superlative as this review... More

During our Princess Cruise stop in Ketchikan, we booked the kayaking tour. Our day in Ketchikan, AK was raining, windy and nasty. However, our kayaking adventure was a blast. We got to see starfish, jellyfish, bald eagles and golden eagles. Jasper, Forrest and Emily were very patient with us getting us situated in our boats, showing us how to maneuver... More
