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.

We organized our own shore excursion in Ketchikan. We chose to do the sea kayaking experience as a group on our own (not from the cruise line packages). We chose Southeast Sea Kayaks. It was a great experience. They were on-time with meeting us. It was very convenient location. The place where you actually kayak is very calm water. The... More

Kayaking is the Soul of the Sea- You are so close you can touch it, feel it, caress it and see into it. Sea creatures, birds of the air, and those on land are all a part of kayaking. Dip yourself into the mesmerizing ocean and enjoy the earth. Brendan was a great guide.

This was a fantastic excursion. We loved that it was small: just us and James the guide. James was just a hoot and great to chat with. We learned about 'life in Ketchickan' from him. He pointed out marine life, eagles, and the pictograph which were highlights of the trip second to all of the salmon jumping out of the... More

This sea kayak trip is a must for anyone visiting Ketchikan, Alaska! Our guide, Tess, was such a gem! She guided us though the gorgeous Tongas Narrows while telling us what to look out for - including bald eagles, jelly fish, sea stars, and bull kelp - all of which we actually saw!! The picturesque mountains in the background made... More

My brother and our wives just returned from our Alaska vacation which included a kayaking trip with Southeast Sea Kayaks in Ketchikan. We booked this directly with them and not as part of a shore excursion with the ship. I kayak quite a bit but my brother and our wives do not kayak at all which initially caused me some... More

We booked this kayak adventure outside of cruise ship. It was awesome, my niece and I did early morning tour. We had Lucas as our guide and I'm so glad we did. He was an amazing guide. Very informative, very nice. It was a great day, no rain. I have never seen an ealge swim before after catching salmon and... More

This was a family trip and the 6 of us were able to go with our own guide. We were given detailed instructions of where to meet when we got off the ship, everything was very organized and all of the employees were very friendly and helpful. Chelsea was our guide on the Orcas Cove trip and she was very... More

We've done a good amount of family kayaking (two 50'ish parents & 3 teen boys), and our guided trip through Orcas Cove with Southeast Sea Kayaks is the best we've ever had. Our guide was relaxed and so pleasant, but also very professional and well-informed about with the local flora & fauna - holding a Moon jellyfish being one highlight... More

This was the first time my wife and I have ever Kayaked. We definitely chose the right company to go with on our Alaskan Cruise. Our guide, Brendan, was GREAT. Not only was he an expert Kayaker, he was a fabulous teacher, and one of the most enthusiastic people we encountered on the entire trip. He showed us so many... More
