Our guide Maggie (the owners daughter) was very personable engaging, knowledgeable, & capable. She was patient with us, did her best to make us feel comfortable, & projected a great enthusiasm for the area, its history & wildlife. This was a nice first-time experience for someone who'se never experienced it before, but not something I would do repeatedly. The vessels... More

Our family took a half day kayaking trip in Sitka Sound with Sitka Sound Ocean Adventures. I would recommend this trip to anyone that is fit enough to take a mile walk and enjoys being outdoors and seeing the local wild-life while paddling a relaxing trip on the water. The company is operated by the Dunlap family with Alison and... More

Our kayaking trip was very fun with Sitka Sound Adventures. We saw beautiful scenery and actually stayed almost completely dry, which was a pleasant surprise. Also, we got to encounter a sea lion very close to our kayaks! It was amazing!

My girlfriends and I have been (for the last several years) taking a trip somewhere in Alaska every year. We grew closer as our children went to the same elementary, middle and high schools. They're now in college, graduating from college and beyond, and we're still together. To celebrate, this year we chose Sitka for our yearly trip. Some of... More

This was my first time kayaking and I was nervous. The entire team put me at ease and after a few minutes of paddling and getting comfortable with the boat, my attention turned to the incredible scenery. Conner had great instincts about what would interest us and we were able to see sea lions rolling in the water, many sea... More

Sitka was our favorite stop, and the kayaking only made it better. Blake was knowledgeable about the sea life and we got up close to some sea lions. Take your camera if at all possible, as some of my favorite shots were taken around the islands, esp the little lighthouse, and Blake got a good one of us in our... More

We scheduled a half day tour and as it turned out we were the only ones scheduled for that day...so we had the guide and the whole trip to ourselves....Boy did we feel spoiled. We are a bit adventurous yet look to stay within safe boundaries and this trip filled the bill. We got close enough to a group of... More

We were dismayed that we couldn't rent single kayaks, but the doubles worked out fine, and was probably a better idea as I think we were all of different strengths. Anyway our guide Blake was an energetic young man and very entertaining. We were very lucky that the weather was beautiful which is unusual for SE Alaska. It was sunny... More

We went out today with Holly. It was great! Rainy weather, but she took us all around places that were beautiful and also protected from the wind. She was friendly, fun and good at knowing the area and keeping a perfect pace for us. We saw otters and starfish and amazing rocky cliffs and beautiful landscapes. Very fun day. We... More
