I had a GREAT trip with Sunny Cove in July 2015 with my guides Tara and Bobby. We saw PORPOISES, SALMON, SEA OTTERS and a BALD EAGLE! The views were AMAZING. I would do another trip with them in a heartbeat.

Kelly (our guide) was updated with the latest information! Thanks to that, we were able to follow a group of Orcas (including a little one!!) and almost caught up with them! We were less than 200 yards away from the orcas - it was an amazing experience :)

We went out for a night kayak off of Fox Island. It was a great experience. We had not signed up and decided to go at the last minute. I am so glad we did this as it was a highlight of our whole Alaska adventure! Don't miss this!

This was great fun! Saw eagles, sea otters, seals, and dolphins! After a great morning on the water, we were offered a wonderful meal. The salmon was perfect! Our guides were great!

While I don't recall our guides names, they were both excellent! Really watched out for us and took care of the needs of someone else who got sea sick. That impressed me after he had told us, rather sternly, that we had to be prepared to stay out 3-hours. I could have stayed longer! The scenery was breathtaking.
