We took a round trip water taxi from Seward to Resurrection Bay with Louie in mid-June. He was great; on time, knowledgable of the area and really friendly. I definitely recommend using him if you're in the area or want to come to the area!

I took my girlfriend on a kayaking adventure to Bear Glacier out of Seward in June. Owner and captain Louie made the planning a breeze. He arranged for kayak rental and all the gear was waiting for us when we got to the small boat harbor. Louie transported us to and from the sandbar at Bear Glacier. He planned our... More

There were 6 of us, all with different ideas on how we should best spend time out on Kenai Fjords. We weren't too keen on the idea of a big boat with stacks of other people, so decided, with some trepidation, to go with Captain Louis. This turned out to be a GREAT choice. Captain Louis was extremely accommodating, right... More

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
