Captain Louis was great to work with- he has a reputation for being on time, and he lived up to his reputation for our water taxi ride to Kayakers Cove. Would highly recommend his service- he was very accommodating to our needs, and went out his way to help us have a great trip.

Captain Louis Garding worked with my sister and I to coordinate a private trip to God's Pocket so we could say a goodbye to our friend who loved that area of Resurrection Bay. Captain Louis was great to work with over the Internet to schedule everything and was even better in person! I would recommend using Captain Louis for your... More

Capt Garding was amazing. From our first contact, he made this the best experience for us in Seward. He was incredible in helping us plan our trip and he was so accommodating to our needs. His knowledge of the area was great. He was able to take us to an area that is not well traveled and it made our... More

Whether you want water taxi service to Kayaker's Cove, a personalized tour of the bay, or to get dropped off (and picked up later, of course) near one of the glaciers which flow into the sea, USCG Licensed Captain Louis Garding is your guy. He knows the territory and can take you where no tour boat could ever go. He... More

We used Alaskan Coastal Safari for a water taxi to/from a forest service cabin at Caines Head. We had stayed at the same place last year and used a different company. We were very impressed this year and there is little comparison in the two companies. Alaskan Coastal Safari was a far better experience. Capt Louis was at the south... More

Finding Seward water taxi ( Alaskan coastal safari) was the best thing that happened to me on our trip to Seward this year. After trying the various other water taxi services, Captain Louis was heads and shoulders above the rest. Not only did he give us perfect custom trip advice, but his local knowledge blew me away. I learned more... More

I went out with Captain Louis on MV LoriSea to explore Resurrection Bay on a beautiful July afternoon. We were joined by whales, puffins, porpoises, eagles and lots of relaxed otters. Captain Louis was a wonderful tour guide and captain. Having worked as a biologist in the area for many years, he had the answer to every question we asked.... More

Upon arriving to the harbor in Seward, Captain Garding was waiting for us at the dock (I'm a stickler for being punctual so this was an immediate plus). He was super friendly and excited to help us load our gear onto his boat. The boat ride was warm and comfortable and along the way I looked at the extensive collection... More

Last October I had the opportunity to experience Resurrection Bay first hand with Captain Louis. I was totally amazed by his wealth of knowledge. Captain Louis can name every mountain peak and every cove along with knowing where the wildlife hangs out. We watched the puffins for quite awhile, then on to glaciers and icebergs. On the way back from... More

We booked a sight seeing tour with the Seward Water Taxi, aka Alaska Coastal Safari, this past May that totally blew our socks off. It went way beyond our expectations and was the highlight of our trip to Alaska. We appreciated the friendly, professional service, and the vast knowledge our captain shared with us about the area and the wildlife.... More
