What a perfect day! From the moment we showed up to start our trip to the wonderful picnic on the beach at the end, the whole experience was outstanding. The orientation for kayaking was clear and thorough. Our guide, Oats, was very professional and had outstanding knowledge of the area. We did a four hour paddle, and saw sea lions,... More

We had an absolutely beautiful day and time on our kayak trip. We were a small group of just 6 and had a very relaxing time out on the water. I've never seen so many eagles! The scenery is amazing. We had so many great photo opps. The homemade cookies they gave us were amazing too! I highly recommend going... More

We lucked out and did the 2.5 hour kayaking trip on what ended up being our only non-rainy day in Sitka. We had a great time with our guide, Oats. He did a great job walking through the safety procedures and how to properly use the paddle/kayak. While out on the water, he took use to little coves so we... More

We are here for a week in Sitka and decided to rent kayaks today since the forecast was "cloudy" according to the National Weather Service. "Cloudy" here in Alaska means light rain, so this was going to be a wet trip. I can't say enough about the quality of our experience with these people. They had in depth knowledge of... More

We rented 6 kayaks from SSOA and they ferried us to, from and between cabins. Every step of the way, John and Allison were reliable, professional, and great to deal with. We "guided" our own trip, but I would absolutely recommend taking short or extended trips with them. Their gear was excellent and they are very knowledgeable and friendly. I'm... More

We were lucky to have a week in Sitka based around a Full Day Sea Kayaking with Sitka Sound Ocean Adventures. Expect water water everywhere - this IS a rainforest, after all. Rain falling all around while sliding gently through crystal clear waters. Connor is a rich star guide, rich in knowledge, passion, history, ease with people, confidence in his... More

On our recent trip to Sitka, my husband and I wanted to give our nieces a true sea kayaking experience. Holly was an amazing guide. Very professional and very knowledgeable of the local wildlife. We did a 4-hour tour with an hour or so spent at the Lost Fort which was very interesting. We were wanting to go at the... More

I have done many kayaking trips in the past and this definitely rates as the best! From the friendly and easy booking arrangements, great guide, Connor including beautiful scenery from bald eagles, sea otters, star fish, hump back whale and the majestic Alaskan wilderness. The lunch was homemade and this is truly a family business. Be prepared for a shoulder... More
