We had a great experience with a fun and knowledgeable guide, Maggie, who clearly loves her job. She completely catered to us and showed us some really neat things.Would go again in a heartbeat!! Thank you!

We decided we wanted to kayak in Sitka while in port on our HAL Alaskan cruise. After a bit of research we booked a kayaking excursion with Sitka Sound Ocean Adventures. So glad we did! Paddling around the islands with our guide Connor was amazing! Connor was an excellent guide - very knowledgeable on the area and just a nice... More

The title really says it all - Sitka Sound Ocean Adventures and their staff was beyond amazing. Myself and my wife were celebrating our honeymoon in Sitka - our first time in the area. We booked a kayak rental for two days to do an excursion around Sitka and Allison and company were exceptionally helpful in every aspect. I have... More

What a fabulous four and a half hours on the water for our family, especially when we had no real experience kayaking prior to this! Connor, our guide, his sister, his wife and his parents all treated us to a terrific day of kayaking in the pristine waters of Sitka Sound - before setting out, they walked us through safety... More

Our whole family experienced this, all 20 of us, ranging in age from 7 to 52 years old. We all had a blast! No one in our party had any kayaking experience whatsoever, so there was some anxiety associated with our excursion, but it all worked great and we had a wonderful experience. The highlight was when seven (7) male... More

We had an amazing 1/2 day with Connor as our guide kayaking in the Sitka Sound. He was an excellent guide and went beyond the call of duty to make our trip a 10. We not only enjoyed the beautiful scenery but saw sea lions up close, were able to sneak up on a bear feeding near the shore before... More

This was ours and our friends' first kayaking experience and we all loved it! Maggie was a great guide, personable, knowledgable, friendly, she put us all at ease and showed us a great and safe trip. We had an awesome time! From 8 years old to 67 we all enjoyed ourselves and none of us were pushed too hard physically.... More

We got dropped off and picked up a week later, about 50 miles out of Sitka, with our kids and our own double kayaks and gear. Can't say enough about how professional SSOA is at every level, from scheduling and booking to loading the boat. John Dunlap runs the boat, and again not only a smooth and professional operation, he's... More

We went out today with our 11 year old daughter for a half day trip and had a spectacular day. The staff are professional and welcoming and everything is very well prepared and thought through. Our guide Holly was knowledgeable and unassuming and patient. We weren't too far out when 6 or 7 sea lions appeared close to us. We... More

We had the pleasure of spending a month in Sitka and took advantage of SSOA 3 times. Since we are middle aged and novices to boot, we stayed with the 2 1/2 hour Island Tour, which fit our stamina level. Due to the changing weather and tides, each trip was different and so much fun. They provide the equipment, kayaks,... More
