We made online reservations for 2 but ended up with 4 going. They were very gracious and accommodating with adding the extra 2. We did not have any experience but went over the safety rules beforehand. The water was perfect and our guide was great. We had a great time and want to go again and again.

Wow! What an adventure! Right out of the gate we were greeted by a bald eagle and a sea lion observing our departure from the harbor. We took the 4.5 hour guided tour with a boat ride back. The scenery was incredible. We saw numerous types of sea life and wildlife (including two lion's mane jellyfish). The picnic of salmon... More

this was the second time i did the 4.5 hour kayaking trip and I enjoyed both times! Thankfully, we had beautiful weather to start, we saw lots of whales, sea otters, sea lions, a couple harbor seals, eagles, starfish, and jellyfish! The scenery is gorgeous. At the end, the weather started to turn rainy for the boat ride back; which... More

All of the staff were incredibly friendly and really wanted us to have a good time. Saw whales, seals/otters, bald eagles and spectacular scenery. They made it so easy to enjoy yourself and are set up for all skill levels. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area and answered all our questions with good humor. Highly recommend.

We did the 4 hour Kayaking adventure the last week of August. It was a great time. Right off the cruise ship. Our guide Garrison was great. Our group had different skill levels and he was able to make it enjoyable for all. They also had fantastic snacks for the trip. We would do it again.

My husband and I were the only participants on this tour with Chris, so we had his undivided attention in asking all kinds of questions - about history of Sitka, geology, wildlife, what life is like for current residents. He was well-informed and interesting. We had had some kayaking experience - I really liked his style in being mindful about... More

We had another Kayak experience in Seward (they get a four!) to compare Sitka Ocean Adventures to. Sitka ocean adventures is a very well managed business. Meticulously cared for high quality equipment and gear. Best entry location. Thorough attention to safety including the brief lesson before water entry. Excellent little homemade savory Salmon tarts and cookies included in the snack.... More

You can't control the weather. That said, good outerwear can keep you warm and dry on the wettest of days. Sitka Sound has what you need to keep you comfortable while you kayak through some gorgeous scenery. You kayak out with a guide and then they pick you up with a boat. So, the whole way, you are seeing new... More

We had wonderful a day that we will always remember; Orcas, Eagles, Otters and seals. Our guide was excellent, knowledgeable and great company. We had to make last minute changes and Ocean Adventures was very accommodating. We will be back next year for an extended trip with Ocean Adventures.
