Booked this excursion on our Royal Caribbean cruise for my family of 4 including 2 adolescents. Fairly painless bus ride to boat dock. motor boat took us to beach where kayaks wait. Along the way saw several bald eagles and nest. Good explanation on kayaking given. I had some trouble keeping my feet in the rudder controls and was graciously... More

Awesome! Fantastic! Epic! Guides knowledgeable and so very kind. Scenery breathtaking! So worth the money$$$$$$. Finished off the tour with rock climbing wall. One of our group, a forty year old was able to ring the bell! Highly recommend!

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.

The BEST time ever. The guides were very knowledgable and safety oriented. There was never any doubt they had your safety in mind first and foremost! I would highly recommend this to anyone, at any skill level. The zipline course was my first, so they wiped away the fear and made it truly enjoyable. TOP NOTCH!!!

Our trip to Alaska included activities and excursions but the one that none of us had tried was sea kayaking. Nervous and excited we showed up not knowing what to expect. Our guides were amazing! They baby stepped the new kayakers without holding back those with experience. My teenagers and I loved this adventure, and the seal, eagle families and... More

Some younger,some highly experienced - Australian park rangers no less,the three guides that came along with us were so lovely and considerate, making sure everyone was OK and safe. They were knowledgeable and took time to point out starfish (on rocks) and eagles nesting. This was a lovely... More

We signed up to zipline here on our Alaskan cruise. We had great weather, saw Bald Eagles right above our heads and our guides were very friendly and knowledgeable even though the jokes were horrid :-D. I highly recommend Southeast Exposure. Jeff and Colton did a great job!

We spent a few hours on the zip line course. They met us at the pier and drove us to the park. It was a perfect mix of zip line and challenge ropes. They also had a climbing wall. The guides were very friendly and were very thorough in their safety measures. We opted for the helmet camera-a good choice.... More

We lucked out and had a beautiful day for kayaking around the Tatoosh Islands. We saw seals, humpback whales, mink, eagles, orcas. The staff at Southeast were fantastic. Fun, friendly, professional and experienced. The equipment was in excellent condition. I highly recommend experiencing the kayak trip, especially with such a great crew.

I'm a local and love renting a kayak from Southeast Exposure. They are friendly, helpful, and not pushy. They are willing to rent a single and just let a person putter around for a couple of hours, I love that. If a group of locals wants to rent a bunch of kayaks for the day they are more than willing... More
