We booked the kayak adventure through the cruise ship. I'd never kayaked before and was nervous but it was surprisingly easy. It was a fantastic tour, the scenery is just amazing, so beautiful. So peaceful and quiet, I could've sat out there in the kayak for hours and hours. We saw an otter briefly. I just couldn't get over how... More

I signed up for kayaking on the Island Princess. The dock rep was waiting for us and we traveledabout 20 minutes thru beautiful countryside. Arriving at the site, Markus Carvallo was our guide. He explained everything to us-especially safety (it was my first time kayaking (69 years of age). He then led us through the Eagle Island tour. Markus never... More

Did the Eagle Island tour. The young lady who was our guide was very informative. The equipment was well maintained and the trip took about 1.5 hours. We saw two bald eagles and some seals came by to check us out as our group paddled by. It is a little bit of work but anyone in basiclly good shape will... More

We arrived in Ketchikan by cruise ship and called SE Exposure to see if they had room on their afternoon trip, which they did. Shane picked us up in the parking lot in front of the ship right on time, processed our liability releases and loaned us boots and jackets, gave us a quick overview of the zodiac operation and...

We signed up for this activity as a cruise ship excursion. As senior citizens we, of course, had concerns about our ability to do this. It was not that hard. We found that sitting in an uncomfortable seat with our legs extended was offset by the thrill of propelling ourselves through the water and seeing the beauty of Alaska's water... More

The excursion I did with Southeast Exposure was the Eagle Island Kayaking. I was staying in town and took the van from the cruise port to the kayaking location. This is about a 25 minute drive from the cruise terminal. This company had all the equipment to keep you dry in a kayak which I took advantage of. The day... More

Shore excursion we chose from our cruise ship included a scenic bus ride to the site, personable guides, and breathtaking views of nature and wildlife. Everything was perfect until I accidentally dropped my waterproof camera in the water! We were kayaking around eagle island and taking pictures of the scenery. We called one of the guides and circled several times... More

With our 12 year old granddaughter we were picked up from town and taken about 15 minutes to our launching area. Our friendly driver stopped off on the way to take photos of the spectacular scenery. Once afloat we felt at peace in this pristine environment, viewing wildlife such as bald eagles, deer, seals, swaying kelp and purple starfish in... More

We kayaked Tatoosh and the guides were great. The scenery was breath-taking. We saw mink, eagles, trout and some of the most tranquil scenery ever. My only regret was that I didn't have more time to spend there.

One of the shore excursions we chose from our Celebrity cruise was to do the Zipline adventure in Ketchikan. Neither of us had ever been zip-lining and I have to say we had a blast. I was really impressed with Southeast Exposure's environmental awareness and love of Alaska. The young staff was very professional and safety conscious, but also fun.... More
