Paul is very accommodating person. He wants you to have the best experience you can possibly have. I would book with him again in a heartbeat! My sister and I both agree it was the best tour on all the trips we have taken together. Her daughter has booked twice with Paul and recommended him to us when she heard... More

We book with Paul for our Alaskan cruise. The communication & transaction was seamless. Let me just say if you want to get a true feel for Sitka, this is the way to do it. Even if you didn't see one animal, the scenery in itself is beautiful. But Paul will make sure you see animals. It was amazing we... More

Paul is quite possibly the best tour guide ever. At the time of our tour, because the weather was inclement, he gave us the option of changing times to later in the afternoon, as the weather was supposed to clear, and there would only be one other couple. (which we did). He is extremely knowledgeable of the area, super friendly,... More

What I can say that the other 114 reviews didn't said yet? Well, Paul is wonderful guide, he knows everything about the wildlife, all our questions were answered, we saw whales, sea otters, we relax in the Goddard Hot Springs, and so many other beautiful things... Thanks for everything, Paul and Gallant Adventures.

Intimate (6 people), Paul put my elderly mom on the passenger seat and when we got next an animal he turned the boat to her side so she didn't have to get up and risk falling... More

The tour doesn't end until you see every creature Paul has to show you. Free beer too. Paul chased me down in the nature park he told us go to after the tour because i forgot my bag on his boat. He then spent 40 mins guiding us to the things you want to see in the park. Stand up... More

I live in Sitka and work for the local conservation group. Needless to say, I love the wildlife that surrounds us here in Sitka and Paul Davis and Gallant Girls is unsurpassed as the best way to witness our wildlife first hand. Excellent intimate knowledge of the local critters and how best to locate and engage with them. Every chance... More

In researching things to do in Sitka I came across the reviews for Gallant Adventures and decided to give it a try. WOW, am I glad that I did. First, it was so easy to arrange. I called Paul one evening (from Washington, DC) to see if he had an opening. He responded immediately; told me how to pay; and... More

We did this whale watching tour on our Alaska cruise and it was absolutely amazing! It was so personal since there were only 7 total people on board (including our guide). The guys enjoyed complementary free Alaskan beers on board, while the tour guide got us super close to the whales and otters so I could get the perfect pictures!... More
