We did this excursion from the Silversea Silver Shadow. Loved seeing the bald eagle nests! Lovely trip, competent guide, beautiful weather, interesting bus ride from the cruise ship terminal to the put in spot. Check out the cute little neighborhood school across the road.

We did this excursion in Ketchikan as our first excursion from the Celebrity Solstice. Our trip started a few hours after we docked, which left us time to explore the city. We met at the pier, and then boarded a bus. The bus ride gave us a tour of the city and a background of its history. When we got... More

Even with a steady drizzle, our family of 4 enjoyed our excursion. Since we were under the tree canopy most of the time we were relatively well protected from the rain. Great guides, close attention to safety for everyone. With the exception of the final 2 zips, these are not terribly high or long, and there is no hand braking,... More

Our family of 11 (grandparents, parents and 5 children aged 8-16) enjoyed a FABULOUS few hours.picked up at ship dock and transported to facility. Fully outfitted and expertly guided. They have 1, 2 and 3 person kayaks. The kids rowed their hearts out as it's an easy activity once you get the hang of it. I found an excellent discount... More

We did the kayak trip out of Knudsen cove. Despite the cold rainy weather, it was a fantastic experience. The guides were top notch, they were very informative, personable and helpful. As expected, the scenery was beautiful with many views of nesting eagles. I highly recommend kayaking in the area - even if it's raining - and using Southeast Exposure!

I took the Eagle Island kayak trip with Southeast Exposure. The weather was cloudy and misty but nothing could diminish the fun of this paddle. The guides gave us safety information and trip overview and also kept a continuous headcount to make sure the group stayed intact. Shortly after taking off we saw purple and orange starfish along a cliff.... More

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
