If you are new to kayaking - this trip is great, however, being avid kayakers, this was not very interesting, slow and uneventful. The staff had there hands full with first time kayakers, which slowed the few remaining experienced kayakers down. I would only recommend this trip to those who have kayaking on their bucket list and this is a... More

We had a wonderful time on their zodiac tour! We ended up seeing a whale and bald eagle among other things. Our tour guide, Ethan, was enthusiastic and well educated in Alaskan wildlife. We had a great time!

i am so glad we booked our trip through Southeast Exposure. In Ketchikan there was pouring ran but just 15 miles down the road at Southeast Exposure there were sunny skies. The guide we had took us to many great places to see ocean life, eagles and deer. We really enjoyed our time kayaking around Eagle Island.

My partner and I were lucky to get our tour guide to ourselves, and paddled in singles at our pace. Got to explore a lot more than we would have had we been in a group tour. Was a gorgeous sunny day and we managed to see the eagles on eagle island. Betsy is a very cool owner/manager who also... More

Booked this for four of us through our travel agent. Ethan greeted us and instantly created a friendly atmosphere. He loaded us into a small zodiac type boat and we went out into the bay with two other couples in their respective boats. We were in total control of the boat, and we tied up to Ethan whenever he had... More

We booked their Tatoosh Islands Sea Kayaking as an excursion during a Celebrity cruise stop in Ketchikan. All of us had a great time. The equipment was in good repair. The guides were helpful and nobody (who didn't want to) got wet. We were out a little longer than planned, but that was on account of beautiful weather and some... More

Wonderful equipment, fantastic service, and knowledgeable staff, just what I want in an outfitter! Jared set us up with quality equipment for a five day trip to Misty Fjord National Monument. He and his crew were wonderful to work with.
