Sitka is all about water and this crew did an excellent job of allowing you to experience it. From pointing out the variety of starfish clinging to the rocks, to letting us linger to watch the seals and sea lions the guide did an excellent job of sharing her love and knowledge for this special place. We went on the... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time on this tour. It was our first visit to Sitka and the guided kayak tour was a perfect introduction to this beautiful place. Our tour guide Mitch was fun-loving and willing to take our picture, too! Thanks for a wonderful time... we would highly recommend this tour to visitors.

We had a great time kayaking in Sitka. This group was wonderful, from the owners and Sean who guided our tour. We were 5 family members ranging from 18 - 55 and we had a great time paddling around the Sitka Harbor and islands. I caught a glimpse of an otter, we saw plenty of starfish and sea cucumbers. We...

I went to Sitka with my girlfriend for a day trip. We didn't know what we were doing until a pilot on our aircraft told us to go kayaking. He gave me the phone number of Sitka Sound Ocean Adventures and I was going to call them once we landed. It turned out he was going with his sons and... More

My husband and I had a great experience. Alison and John, the owners, and Kailan, our guide, were so friendly, helpful and knowledgable. Although it was drizzly, we had great rain gear provided, excellent kayaking skill briefing and demonstration, and off we went. We felt comfortable and safe and the pace was easy. We got to really enjoy nature up... More

While these guys are really nice and offer a decent little guided trip, they wont rent to you even if you're experienced. If I wanted to paddle, I had to take a guided trip. It was apparent that I had more experience than the girl who was my guide and the group had some really slow paddlers that kept us... More

sitkasound, Owner at Sitka Sound Ocean Adventures, responded to this review

I know this is not a terrible review, but as owner of Sitka Sound Ocean Adventures, I am feeling compelled to reply to a few statements in this review that are misleading or unintentionally inaccurate. It is apparent that this guest would have preferred renting a sea kayak to do a solo paddle - as opposed to a guide-led trip... More

I, like nearly every reviewer did this as a shore excursion from a cruise. Great time! There is wildlife in the bay--harbour seals and otters, loads of birds.

This was my favorite shore excursion ever! When our cruise ship arrived at Sitka, we tendered in to the dock. The Big Blue Bus was right where they said it would be and we were quickly greeted and made to feel welcome. It turned out that the hubs and I were the only two on the tour (talk about personal...

My partner and I booked a cruise to Alaska and had the fortunate experience of kayaking with Sitka Sound Ocean Adventures. Although we had been kayaking before, it was in the warm calm Caribbean, and not the Pacific! When we arrived we were made to feel right at home, and the staff was very professional in explaining the procedure and... More
