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

This was a wonderful experience in Ketchikan and I highly recommend it when cruising to Alaska! It was a great way to get up close and personal with some of the locals: bald eagles, seals, sea stars and jellies. I loved that we were in such a small, intimate group of six people, making it a very personal experience. Our... More

Kayaking in Ketchikan was a fantastic experience. We enjoyed seeing salmon and seals. A beautiful bald eagle perched in the tree, and the float planes were seen taking off and landing nearby. Our tour guide, Chelsea, was very pleasant. I highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in kayaking in Alaska. Keep up the good work!! Thanks again, Kathy and... More

Picked up on the dock by Mary then walked around to the "office" that was floating in the marina we were immediately given confidence in our trip with Mary. A mine of information who obviously enjoys her job and her surroundings. We were quickly kitted out and zipped across the water to the floating base of our kayaking trip. Relaxed,... More
