We spent the day sea kayaking in Blackstone Bay , this and halibut fishing were the highlights of our trip and we would do both again in a heart beat. DO NOT let the price of this trip scare you off it is worth every penny and then some. My husband at first didn’t want to do this for 2... More

Our family, with 3 kids ranging in age from 9 -12 (who have some paddling experience) signed up for the Blackstone Bay paddle. Pete and team at Alaska Sea Kayakers were incredible. Pete connected with us multiple times before the adventure, with weather updates. Details. You wear layers, and a cap (to keep the rain off your face). They provide... More

The owner of Alaska Sea Kayak and our guide were very friendly. After a boat tour of approx. 30 minutes which took us to the departure point in Blackstone Bay, we got a brief introduction on kayaking. We then started to paddle towards the first glacier. The landscape was amazing and we were lucky with the sunny weather. We had... More

Trip was initially cancelled due to bad weather so we went for a walk around Whittier. Weather settled, and Peter came driving looking for us!. Kayaked up the inlet and saw a humpback whale surfacing near us

My boyfriend and I were in Anchorage visiting some family and wanted to get a sea kayaking trip in and found Alaska Sea Kayakers online. Peter did a great job letting me know how the whole process worked for reserving a time to go on their short three hour float and let us know ahead of time what times were... More

The highlight of my Alaska trip! Saw a glacier calving, seals and otters up close, hiked on a glacier! The provided picnic lunch was incredible! Derek our guide was fantastic! I'd do it again in a heartbeat!

We did the full day blackstone bay trip. We kayaked through icebergs to within less than a mile of the huge Blackstone Bay Glacier. We saw multiple massive chunks of ice falling off and hitting the water like thunder (calving). Although it rained most of the day, the wet gear provided kept us dry. Our guide Brice was very informative... More

Our family of five, two out of shape parents and three teenage boys, took the full-day Blackstone Bay trip in early June 2014 and cannot recommend it highly enough. Every one of us rated it far and away the highlight of our two-week visit to Alaska. Pete runs a wonderfully friendly and welcoming, but highly professional enterprise. Every aspect was... More

We were rank amateurs and not so young any longer and Peter and the gang set us up and took us on a trip that matched our capabilities. The area is beautiful and we had so much fun we got our own kayak when we got home and hopefully, if we get to do this again, we will be able... More

There's a reason this Blackstone Bay excursion has such good reviews--great sites and superb service and guides. Some in our group of 8 had never kayaked before so we went to their shop the afternoon before and met Peter, the owner. He was so helpful telling us what they would provide, tips on what we should wear and bring and... More
