If you're going to be in Sitka then you have to do a kayak trip with Sitka Sound! The owners, Alison and John, are so friendly and will make sure you have everything you need for your trip, even a homemade cookie:) My guide was Garrison and he was truly great. Very knowledgeable about the waters and wildlife and made... More

This is a first class company. From the moment you step up to their bus until even after you get home (they emailed me a few photos from the trip). We had a relatively small group, only 4 of us so that made it very personal. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the area, so any questions we asked he... More

Having had a wonderful time on the half day sea kayak tour last year, we decided to go on an all day adventure to the Volcano Coast. The trip was all we hoped it would be. The power boat put us ashore on a beach and we rigged up. Our guide, Garrison, was wonderful; very knowledgeable about the area and... More

My husband and I did the Half Day Sound Paddle & Cruise and it was great! Turns out we were the only ones who signed up for the morning tour so it was just us and our guide, Connor. We were on a cruise with Holland-America, and their blue bus was parked right at the dock, you can't miss it.... More

Our kayaking experience exceeded our expectations in Sitka! The guides were more than accommodating to our family of 10 (youngest child 10, a 13 year old, 1 college student). They made sure we had the proper gear we needed to have an enjoyable & safe experience. Two of our family members ended up getting a little sea sick. Budgie and... More

We recently spent a week in Sitka and booked a half day kayak cruise. Our guide, Chris, was very friendly and knowledgeable. He took great care in explaining safety procedures, which was much appreciated since this was our second time on an ocean kayak. We kayaked around the beautiful Baranof Islands, which is a totally different view than driving around... More

If you have arm or shoulder problems this would not be for you, but for everyone else that is low maintenance and high adventure this trip is great! If it is raining accept the dry gear they offer. The staff takes care of you and is very friendly. You will go out if the ocean conditions are safe but it's... More

A very friendly and professional team. We went on two full-day guided kayak adventures with Connor, who is an engaging and informative interpreter and who, as a Sitka native, clearly knows the terrain like the back of his hand. The first day (Full Day Wild Coast Paddle & Cruise package) we explored the inlets and islands around the Eastern Channel,... More
