This was one of our favorite excursions during our recent Alaska cruise. We did not book this company through the cruise ship but online prior to our sailing. We were a bit hesitant in doing so, but looking back at the experience there was no need for concern (e.g. missing our cruise ship's scheduled port departure.) Southeast Sea Kayaks is... More

We were here visiting for the day on our Alaskan cruise. We went upstream with the jumping salmon, saw starfish, eagles, and jellies. It was also fun to watch all of the planes take off and land on the water. My husband and I enjoyed our time on the water and were blessed with gorgeous sunny day. Chelsea was a... More

We had a great kayak trip with SE Sea Kayaks. We were lucky enough to have a sunny day for our trip, which helped showcase the amazing scenery. Booking the trip was very easy, and when we inquired ahead of time about kids rain gear (we were expecting rain!) we had a prompt reply that they had something available for... More

We did the Orcas Cove trip with Southeast Kayaks and had a wonderful experience. We were met on the dock and escorted to their office boat where we were fitted with gear and driven to a remote and secluded cove. There we received instructions and were loaded into kayaks...the kayak was the most comfortable kayak that I had ever ridden... More

This was a wonderful trip. Very professional and fun organization. Four different families on one trip. Brandon, Ellie and Megan are the best guides. Wonderful sun filled day. Much less expensive than what was offered on our cruise ship. Will reminder and recommend this company to anyone who will listen. Picked up right in front of the cruise ship, given... More

This kayak trip was wonderful. But what really set this tour apart from our other excursions was that from dockhand and high school senior Emily, to owners Gillian and Greg (all three year-round Ketchicaners) to our guide Tess (a summer transplant), all four shared with us what it's like to actually live in Ketchican, accessible only by air or sea....

Our family of 5 (children ages 15, 13, 11) all had an amazing time kayaking with Chelsea! The weather was perfect and the scenery was more beautiful then the pictures. Much less expensive then what was offered on our cruise ship because they had a children's rate for 15 and under. We also loved having a small group instead of... More

We had a great time with Southeast Sea Kayaks. We've gone on a sea kayak tour before in another area, and we learned from this experience that much higher quality kayaks exist for use. The area they whisked us out to via speed boat was beautiful with calm clear waters in which we saw jelly fish, starfish, a king crab... More

My husband and I had a great time kayaking! We were met by a sweet and experienced guide, Michele. She knew the area very well and we appreciated the tour as we paddled. We got to see a seal, bald eagles and sea life. Even though it was a windy, rainy day we never felt unsafe in the channel with... More

Thank you so much for sharing your experience! Michelle is an amazing guide and loves sharing her knowledge of Ketchikan with our guests; we are so glad you had such a great time with her. We're happy you braved the rainy weather and were rewarded with such amazing wildlife sightings. You never know what cool things you will see in... More

I booked this trip before I started my cruise. I am happy I did. This company is family run. They dont have the cruises locked in . It is a more personal feel and the effort is appreciated. Although our weather was not great we still went kyacking which was really wonderful. Unfortunately by the time we were set to... More
