If you want to get out of town, be free of the cruise ship for a few hours and see some really beautiful surroundings, can paddle moderately for a few hours with little or no help, this tour is it. Andre was informative and very helpful. Gabe, otherwise known as Him gets you out to the boat where the kayaks... More

I can't say enough nice things about this company and its employees. Paddling with them was one of the best things of an already great vacation! I researched and booked Southeast Sea Kayaks directly for an excursion during our cruise to Ketchikan. Their reviews were great and they were much cheaper than similar ones through the cruise line. Our guide,... More

My husband didn't really want to go kayaking and be cold and we're not first timers. But the kayaks are good quality and had the shirts to keep dry so he ended up enjoying himself. Josh kept talking so much to point things out that my husband didn't really have a chance to complain to me. We didn't see any... More

This was a day activity for a cruise ship visit, and booked on-line rather than through the cruise line. My family are experienced kayakers, but it is not really required for this excursion. We were met on-time at the Raingauge by our very friendly guide Jesse. A short walk to the marina where sitting up and signing waivers took about... More

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
