We went on the Shoup Bay Hike with Sound Eco Adventures. My husband and I have lived in Valdez for three years and have never done this trail, but decided it would be a great trip to do with our 14 year old nephew when he came to visit. We even brought our dog along. This was an absolutely beautiful... More

I was a bit hesitant to try Sound Eco Adventures without Capt. Gerry at the helm, but when I saw this company had moved to Valdez, I had to give them a try. I prefer to go with smaller, local tour operators rather than cattle calls, and this trip didn't disappoint. I went on the history trip with 3 friends... More

This was an excellent trip and well worth the extra price compared to a big boat tour. We reserved the entire boat for just the 4 of us. The day was a gorgeous and it was good start to the tour. Jerry was an excellent host. Even though we were unable to go near the Harvard glacier because of the... More

What an outstanding day we had on Gerry's boat looking for whales. He knows where to go in Prince William Sound!! On more than one occasion, we were surrounded by whales. Since Gerry is a photographer (I might add he is one of professional quality), he was always cognizant of making sure he turned his boat to capture the best... More

When researching Alaska I stumbled across this trip...my brother and I went with captain Gerry on his photo tour....We splurged on this trip and Camp Denali rather than cruise...We were blown away...we left at 9 in the morning and were not back for over 10 hours. We passed only 5 other boats in all that time..Gerry was so knowledgable ...he... More

I decided quite late in my Alaska trip planning to add a Prince William Sound trip, and after nearly booking one of the big tours I happened on a review of Captain Gerry's trip and I was hooked. My daughters and I had a great day, with just two other passengers. the small boat, and Captain Gerry's knowledge of the... More

My wife and I spent ten days in Alaska and our day aboard Captain Gerry's Boat, The Sound Access, was definitely among the best. I debated whether or not to take a tour on one of the larger ships, but I decided to spend the extra money for Sound Eco Adventures. I definitely made the right choice. We probably didn't... More

We disembarked from a cruise ship at Whittier, and climbed aboard Captain Gerry's boat - the Sound Access - for a day trip before heading up to Anchorage. Being Australian and with the exchange rate *not* in our favour, we paid a hefty fee for the day - but boy, was it worth it! For a start, the Sound Access... More
