There were only 6 people on our trip and we were all kayak newbies- Holly was patient and had no problem keeping us all on task! We were even able to spend some time watching the sea lions playing in... More

I have visited Sitka a number of times but never took the kayak trip. Found it a great experience. It was only my second ride in a kayak. Felt very safe. Saw a view of Sitka and the mountains not available from the land, it was wonderful. Was just disappointed that I had waited so long and was not able... More

The Sitka Sound is quite beautiful, even in the rain. SSOA was extremely helpful in planning our multi-day trip and very flexible when a pre-existing injury caused us to modify our plans. Throughout the months of planning our adventure, John and Alison were responsive to all our questions and most helpful and friendly when we arrived. Their service was exceptional... More

Booked this trip based on the other Trip Advisor recommendations. What a great experience. Learned how to properly get in/get out, paddling techniques, steering, then we were off and went all over Sitka on a 2.5 hour tour. Probably kayaked over 30 times but this was my first instruction and it was great! The trip was the highlight of our... More

We had an incredible trip with SSOA! The only thing that could have made this experience better would have been going on a cloudless day, but then we would have had been sunburned so no complaints. Holly was an excellent guide. She was knowledgeable, experienced, helpful, eagle-eyed and friendly. The experience was unforgettable, as well as the home made cookies... More

We loved our day in Sitka because of this great family run business. They were warm and welcoming..... Homemade cookies & nutritious lunch on the beach . Our guide holly was knowledgable and so sweet ...... It was about a 5 mile trip with lots of wildlife to see. We would highly recommend !!!!

Sound Ocean Adventures is run by an enthusiastic Alaskan couple who clearly live their work and want you to love it also. Four of us in 2 tandem kayaks and one guide launched right from the downtown area and paddled for about 3 hours on a calm, overcast day. Our guide kept us moving pretty much the whole time. We...

Oates, the guide, was great. This is a small family business and they keep the groups small on purpose - and it was very enjoyable. They take you all around the small islands near Sitka port, comfortably paced for the group. Loved the break from the cruise ship to do something outdoors - and we got lucky with the weather....
