This excursion was our first on our cruise to Alaska. Every in our family (2 adults and 2 kids ages 12 and 15) really enjoyed the Orca's cove tour. We were impressed by the thorough explanation of the day, organized approach, warm and friendly staff and the delicious salmon snacks and drinks at the end. Gabe drove us out and... More

My wife and I booked the Orca's Cove trip with Southeast Sea Kayaks and thought it was a great experience from start to finish. We booked through their website - it thoroughly explained the various trips, costs, equipment provided, what to wear, trip difficulty, etc. I really liked that the website showed the available trip times and the number of...

We had an awesome experience with Southeast Sea Kayaks. Our guide was knowledgeable and we got to see and, in many cases, handle all kinds of wildlife in the cove. We picked the 7am tour and ended up being the only two with the tour guide. Because all groups are kept small, you can really have an individualized experience. I'm... More

It was raining when we went to Ketchikan in July (as I think it usually does), but that didn't diminish our enjoyment of this experience in the least. Our guide (Brendan I think) was fantastic. We were in a group of 6 and he was professional and patient with all of us. My husband and I were the only experienced... More

Welcomed and treated very well from the very beginning of the trip. Gabe, Greg and Luke were wonderful. It was a comfortable and relaxing trip around the cove area out on the open water. Eagles and porpoises and harbor seals. Beautiful. Peaceful. Absolutely a highlight of our trip! These people helped make Ketchikan a favorite stop. Thank you. Thank you.... More

We had the good fortune to tour with Brendan, a very knowledgeable young man. He told a lot about the local area & wildlife, while safely leading us on a 2-hour kayak tour.

What a great group of folks who help you get properly "geared" up, then your captain (ours was hysterical ---missed catching his name) takes you to the "cove". They ALL helped my B-I-L with polio - satisfy his dream of kayaking!!! Beautiful sea life and scenery. Once back - YUMMO salmon picnic! Limited bathroom facilities so they ask you use... More

What a wonderful time. Our guide Andre was great and so were all the other people from the company. They take you by boat to a cove somewhat out of town. You are in high end double sea kayaks so you paddle with someone else. My wife kept saying I was steering wrong! Great wildlife. Salmon jumping out of the... More

My whole family and I had a great time doing the shorter Ketchikan Kayaking tour. We were able to do a private tour with the eight of us, two in each kayak. Our guides were young, but surprisingly knowledgeable and informative. Wildlife wise: We saw some otters on Creek Street, and then got to gawk at some bald eagles on... More

We wanted an outdoor, active tour to keep our teenagers busy. This 2 hour tour was perfect. We searched on line instead of buying through the cruise ship. We got there a little early and got extra time on the tour. Our guide, Emily, was fantastic and kept wanting to sho us more. The thrill of seeing bald eagles fly... More
