Annie was our guide for our rainy day in Ketchikan. The fully outfitted us in rain gear including jackets and pants and a dry bag. We were able to see harbor seals, starfish, and many bald eagles. Annie was able to answer any and all of our questions and kept a comfortable pace. We are experienced kayakers and so was... More

My wife and I wanted something fun and "outdoors-y" to do in Ketchikan when our cruise ship pulled in there, and that's exactly what we got with Southeast Sea Kayaks. Their boat/gear locker was only a five-minute walk from where our ship moored, and fifteen minutes later we were into our gear and on the water! Our guide, Jess, was... More

Reliable family-owned business with friendly and knowledgeable guides. We had a great kayak tour in Orca Cove and a "picnic" with others on their boat with a tasting of the most delicious smoked salmon ever! Coordinated our kayak adventure with a float plane to Misty Fjords that was breathtaking. All done through Southeast Sea Kayaking. I highly recommend this combo.

We really enjoyed this experience...a way to do something "active" as opposed to all of the whale watching; yet there was always a chance! Well organized start to finish. Easy to find...all the gear you could possibly need, a fun boat ride to the location, instruction, support and yummy salmon afterwards. Would definitely recommend the experience.

We called the day of our paddle and scheduled a paddle in the harbor. Great. The wind kicked up and rather than take us out, they upgraded us to a trip to Orca Cove. No hassle, no haggle - they just did it so we'd "have a better experience". Our guide was great, knowledgeable, and the owner (who drove us... More

If you enjoy kayaking, Southeast Sea Kayaks in Ketchikan is a great place to enjoy the sport. The owners Greg and Gillian are wonderful people that I have known for two years now. Greg loves to talk about kayaking trips and I relied on Gillian's answers to my many questions about what to bring and other trip details. I have... More

The excursions in Alaska can be extremely pricey.So we decided to go off the beaten path and find our own, It's not offered through the cruise ships.To find them, you have to actually go down to the dock behind the Behind the Alaska fish house (next to lumberjack show.) Because we booked it that day, They even gave us a... More

This tour group provides a scenic and enjoyable 2 hr kayaking trip. My tour guide was very helpful when it came to making sure everyone was using their equipment properly and had a lot of information to provide when we asked her questions about the area. Fun and well worth it.

Fantastic trip and great staff. Annie, our guide, took the six of us around a couple of different coves before returning to the 'mother ship' for Greg's smoked salmon. We ranged in age from teenagers to near-50 and didn't have any issues. The high point was seeing the A5 pod from ~1/4th mile away -- I counted > a dozen... More
