We had a great time kayaking with Southeast Sea Kayaks out of Ketchikan. Booked the tour through Costco so felt assured it would be a good tour. We took a launch on a nice ride over to the kayak site and were given a thorough orientation on ocean rafting. My wife had never been kayaking before so she was a... More

Luke and Kenny were wonderful guides for our group of 10 people including 4 children. The weather was nasty and poring when we met at 11 but we proceeded anyhow. They made it very special for all of us and we have wonderful memories.

had a great time, tour was geared more towards novice or first time kayakers. had problem with obtaining single kayak, but I fault carnival more than Southeast; once I expressed the arrangement that had been fully documented with Carnival Southeast made sure that we were provided with the single kayaks we requested. we had a very short port visit and...

Kind of disappointed in what we got to see. It was a really nice day for kayaking and we did get to see some starfish and bald eagles, but after everything else we had done it kind of seemed like a let down since we didn't get to see any whales or anything of that nature. It was a very... More

The weather held out for us, but I'm sure the trip would have been great anyway! Josh was a terrific guide who shared a kayak with our teenage son. The pace was slow and he tailored the trip to us. This would be great for a novice or experienced paddler. Avoid the crowds and see nature instead.

When we arrived, the water was pretty choppy, and we were first timers with a 6 year old. Without us asking, they upgraded our package at no cost. We took a boat over to a cove where the water was calmer. Brendan was our guide. He grew up in the area had a lot of helpful information to offer. We... More

I had never kayaked before so I was a little nervous. Our guide Emily was really helpful and explained everything and got us geared up and in the kayaks pretty quickly. We started the tour along a small inlet that runs by a section of town, so we got comfortable in the kayaks in an isolated area before hitting open... More

Our group of three (all late 20s) booked independent of our cruise - wanting to ensure the company got all the proceeds. We did the 2.5 hour Ketchikan Kayaking tour. PROs: - Small groups! For this tour, there is a max of 6 people (three 2-person kayaks) plus a single of the kayak. In our tour, we had 6 total... More
