We are a family of four with two teenagers who did the Orca's Cove adventure, and it was one of the highlights of our trip. It is a short walk to their offices where you are outfitted with your gear, and then a short trip on a motorboat to "home base" in Orca's Cove - another larger ship where you... More

This is a great family owned ( Australian) kayacking business. We were so glad the larger operation was filled. To be that close to bald eagles and to view the sealife so up close was so memorable. We went at a steady pace and Greg found out that someone was having their birthday and when we got on the boat... More

The day was perfect, sun shining, eagles hovering and a fabulously knowledgable guide - wouldn't have been be dead for quids!. The business owner Greg was OK too - but aren't all aussies!! Seriously though, it was a really good experience and one I have recommended already a few times to people along our travels. The snack at the end... More

I was on a cruise with Norwegian Jewel. We booked this excursion on our own, saved big by cutting out the middle men (Cruise Line) and didn't have to deal with big lines. One of the more memorable days of our cruise. Quaint quality.

Our experience was great. Tess our guide was fantastic and patience as my wife was terrified at first. She kept the group together as we cached up. She shared with us information about the area story. We were able to see an Bold Eagle that graciously posed for our pictures. We felt safe all the time even when we crossed... More

The weather that we had was great, sunny and a slight breeze. It just made the kayaking tour better. There was only 4 of us plus the guide Lukas. He was knowledgeable about the area and the local wildlife. We paddled around Orcas Cove for a while, we saw some bald eagles and an eagles nest. On the way back... More

Having never kayaked before, Southeast Sea Kayaks offered a short tour which included fish creek and seemed appropriate for a first time experience. I went with a friend in a two person kayak. I had no issues with their on-line booking. We were met at the quayside on time as pre-arrangeed and walked to their office where we were kitted... More

In spite of the weather we had a great 2 hours paddling and managed to see some seals as well. Our guide was really fantastic and as there were only 2 of us, it was a very personalised trip. She was very willing to accommodate us in terms of where we wanted to go and how far we wanted to... More

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
