There's a reason people choose S C S K. The guides are so helpful, friendly and HARD WORKING.

The paddle from Fox Island was wonderful. We explored both coves and got a great perspective on the size of the island. We saw a sea lion, several harbor seals and many different birds at very close range. A bald eagle took off from a rock so close to me that I felt the air move on my face. Arthur... More

I believe we were the luckiest kayakers to ever make it to Fox Island, because our trip brought us within meters of humpback whales tail-slapping the surface, bald eagles nesting and swooping down to pluck fish from the waters, harbor seals inquisitively following our kayaks into the bay, a pod of orcas (lead by a massive bull male) swimming through...

We loved our afternoon kayaking around Fox Island. The scenery is simply stunning and we were lucky enough to have a seal lion make an appearance as we were kayaking. We got good instructions from the enthusiastic guides. I would highly recommend the tour.

The kayaks, boots, paddles and pfd's were all clean and well-maintained. The guides, Jack and Cat, were knowledgeable, careful and took extra time to make sure were we comfortable and safe. They showed us wildlife, told us about the area, and made it a terrific trip.

An awesome way to see Resurrection Bay up close. Sunny Cove staff are fabulous! Our guide Arthur and Bobby couldn't have done a better job. They were great instructors, encouraging, and made sure everyone's need were met. One gave a cold kayaker the coat off his back and the other his coffee. Both very knowledgeable about the area. Thanks again... More

The whole experience was so fun and peaceful... super knowledgeable guides that let us pick our paddle pace (we chose fast!). A beautiful day on the water with lots of wildlife and a reminder to slow down (or even stop) and just take in all that Alaska has to offer.

We had a great time on our Sunny Cove kayaking trip. Our guide, Ben, did an EXCELLENT job. He was upbeat, fun, knowledgeable, and professional. He also kept us well fed along the way, producing a steady supply of tea, soup, snacks, lunch, and plenty of water. We weren’t especially experienced at sea kayaking, but we were taught the basics...

We went with our two daughters (ages 10 and 13) for a half-day trip. JD and Tara were great guides. We ran into some sea otters and harbor seals while we were out!

During a trip to Alaska, my friend and I decided to do a short sea kayaking tour with Sunny Cove. Our scheduled trip was cancelled due to weather, we were given the choice to receive a full refund or reschedule. We opted to reschedule. It was worth it!
