I am a local who has gone kayaking twice at Southeast Exposure. So much fun! An excellent way to see Alaska up close. Seals, whales,otters...bright, knowledgable staff. Fun time.

Really enjoy kayaking in Alaska. You get to see more scenery and wildlife than most other adventures. Had a wonderful day to kayak and got to see plenty of bald eagles and several sea lions (up close). Kayaked close to a couple of islands to see the plants and how they grow. Kayaking in Alaska will never grow old.

We booked this sea kayaking excursion through our Celebrity cruise, and it was a highlight of our trip. Even the journey from the ship to the start of the kayaking tour was great. We were taken by a small bus from the port in Ketchikan to the north end of the island, where we met one of the two guides.... More

The cruise guidebook called it Zipline Adventure Park. Of all the tours we did in Alaska this was the best! The staff is very helpful and friendly. It shows that they love what their doing and love introducing people to the fun of ziplines. Gotta love the clean, crisp Alaskan air rushing across your face while you're effortlessly gliding through... More

I recently partook in the Eagle Island Sea Kayaking excursion from our cruise ship. It was so peaceful and beautiful. We saw many bald eagles. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the wildlife in the area. I would recommend this to company to anyone looking to kayak.

We were picked up at our cruise ship by an informative and friendly driver who took us up the only road in Ketchican to their location where we geared up and boarded an inflatable boat to the Tatoosh Islands. We then got into our kayaks and paddled around this serene environment. We saw sea lions, star fish, bald eagles. Everyone... More

This was the second year in a row my teen age son and I (mom) cruised to Alaska and took in some adventure type activities. Southwest Exposure is first class in customer service, friendly guides, beautiful set up, very safety conscious…. And they have a real friendly older yellow lab. We did the zip trek both years, well worth the... More

Our tour guide Ethan was a great educator of the area. We saw a bald eagle's nest with two fledglings learning to fly. Beautiful scenery and salmon almost jumping into our boats. Zodiacs were easy to maneuver

We had a great time with Jeff and Colton. The Rainforest was beautiful, and the guides were engaging and funny (yes, Colton, even your jokes!). I would recommend this excursion to anyone. Jeff and Colton were very safety conscious (I got caught making a mistake with my clips..embarrassing!!!). Wear waterproof clothing and sturdy shoes.

I screwed up the itinerary and booked on the completely wrong date and time. Betsy seems to be on call around the clock. Being that I was on the cruise ship, I had no cell service for most of my trip- she made sure to leave me detailed voice messages with my options, and was able to get me and... More
