I really enjoyed my experience with Southeast Sea Kayaks! I was the only person to book the 9:00 AM Orca Bay Tour on that particular day, and I was impressed that they ran the tour regardless. It was just me and my guide, Mary. She was very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area and wildlife. We saw a lot... More

This was a wonderful experience in Ketchikan and I highly recommend it when cruising to Alaska! It was a great way to get up close and personal with some of the locals: bald eagles, seals, sea stars and jellies. I loved that we were in such a small, intimate group of six people, making it a very personal experience. Our... More

Kayaking in Ketchikan was a fantastic experience. We enjoyed seeing salmon and seals. A beautiful bald eagle perched in the tree, and the float planes were seen taking off and landing nearby. Our tour guide, Chelsea, was very pleasant. I highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in kayaking in Alaska. Keep up the good work!! Thanks again, Kathy and... More

Picked up on the dock by Mary then walked around to the "office" that was floating in the marina we were immediately given confidence in our trip with Mary. A mine of information who obviously enjoys her job and her surroundings. We were quickly kitted out and zipped across the water to the floating base of our kayaking trip. Relaxed,... More

My family celebrated my parents' 60th wedding anniversary this year by taking a cruise to Alaska. I was in charge of port excursions and in researching Ketchikan online, I read some wonderful reviews on Southeast Sea Kayaks adventures. They had an excursion that fit in well with our short stay in Ketchikan so I booked it well in advance. Surprisingly,... More

I took my wife on an Alaskan cruise for our 15 year anniversary in August. I asked her what kind of excursion she wanted to do and her only request was "Sea Kayaking". I did some research and booked our Sea Kayaking Excursion with Southeast Sea Kayaks in Ketchikan. What a great decision and what an amazing experience! Ella and... More

Kayaking in Alaska has long been a desire for my Dad of 85 yrs. This year my sister and I made it a reality. The weather was as expected - rainy and little wavy on the ocean. We came prepared and with the exceptional patience and guidance from Chelsea and the crew, my Dad had the time of his life.... More

Excellent way to get away from the crowds of tourists and experience a part of Alaska that is more adventurous. Loved our guide, her professionalism, kindness and wealth of knowledge that she shared with us as we kayaked and hiked in true Alaskan weather.
