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

Peter had all the gear we needed too - and the gear was all top quality - no crappy gear. don't hesitate even though the all day blackstone bay trip is... More

Where do I begin?!?! If you are in the Whitter or Anchorage area, do not miss this opportunity to get up close to the glaciers by sea. We opted to do the full day excursion that explores the many glaciers in Blackstone Bay. Peter, the owner of Alaska Sea Kayakers, was very helpful in getting a group together and having... More

ASK's Blackstone Bay full day tour on 30th June 2014. Everyone in the group of 8, young and old, had a great time. Our guide ‘Drew was excellent: friendly, calm, capable, careful, informative and the lunch he made was satisfying. The kayak gear was of high quality. The paddle distance and speed were both not excessive for an average healthy... More

My wife suggested sea kayaking as one potential outing during our Alaska trip, and we are thrilled that we actually did it. We did the "Passage Canal" tour and were blessed with beautiful weather for the day (except for just enough wind that we weren't able to row across the Sound to the base of the glacial waterfalls). We had... More

I had never been sea kayaking before and let me just say, this was amazing. Peter, the owner, is super friendly and communicated exactly what we needed to bring. The guides are all friendly. I went one day with a large group and the next day with a very small group in very different weather conditions - one was a... More
