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

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

This is way better than any excursion you can book through the cruiseline. They were so accomodating with our time schedule, and our guide was so knowledgable and friendly. Nice small group made things move quickly in terms of getting started and ending, and made it more personal. I highly recommend this family owned tour group, they are top notch... More

12 of our family spent the afteroon kayaking and then soaring in float planes through the Misty Fjords. This was a fantastic adventure. We lucked out with great weather and as we are all experienced kayakers we were able to really go a good distance in a couple of hours. The tour company provided a lovely little canned salmon snack... More

Brendan met us on time and took us through several safety checks before getting into our kayaks. He was instructive in how to kayak so that we could maneuver safely. Brendan was also well versed in Ketchikan history and the nature around this port. After getting off of a cruise ship, seeing our vessel from a kayak provided a sense... More

We had a wonderful kayaking trip in late July 2014 with Southeast Sea Kayaks in Ketchikan. We are a family of 5 with 3 boys ages 4-10. Although a little nervous about taking a 4 year old out on the kayak, Gillian reassured us that this was no problem and she was absolutely right. The two older boys sat in... More

I highly recommend Southeast Sea Kayaks. I love that we had our own tour guide and only 3 kayaks in our group. Spending half a day on the water away from the cruise ship crowds was an ideal way to see more of Alaska.
