Sept. 11, 2013--This was the best excursion during out cruise. Our group of five had the boat to ourselves. We saw a humpback whale very near our boat minutes after our adventure started. Paul was very knowledgeable about the area and took us to see eagles, seals, sea otters, sea lions, sea stars and jellyfish. This trip was fantastic! Paul... More

​Paul Davis is the owner of Gallant Adventures and he is absolutely fantastic at what he does! Paul shared his part of Alaska with the 5 of us. Paul took us close to Alaska's wide life. We can't say enough on how much fun we had. Thank you Paul. From Pennsylvania Inline image 1

Paul Davis is the owner of Gallant Adventures and he is absolutely fantastic at what he does! We were so close to whales that when they blew, we felt it on our faces. There were only four of us and Paul on his boat and he went above and beyond to show us what we came to see. I would... More

In our Gallant Adventure there were 4 people our tour with Paul, our captain As a photogragher, I knew what images I hoped to capture. We saw whales, otters, sea lions, sea urchins, a variety of sea life and even a horned puffin. We were so close to a whale that we heard it breathe in and got sprayed when... More

If you are looking for an affordable excursion that is not booked through a cruise line, definitely consider Paul and Gallant Adventures. He has two times that you can tour- 7:30am and 11am and each tour is close to 3 hours long. Paul is a terrific guide and will point out all the interesting parts of Sitka. He is extremely... More

First of all thanks again Paul. We found Paul to be knowledgeable and passionate about all things Alaska, truly a great guy wanting to share his love of nature. This guys doesn't just sit there and wait for whales, he hits the throttle and makes waves, you get the idea that he is just out there having a blast every... More

Our family group of five (9-73yrs) arrived in Sitka by cruise ship and the tender dropped us at the same dock where Paul picked us up. Paul was super friendly and accommodating and we set off in his warm and cozy boat immediately. He asked us what we'd like to see and do and offered us complementary drinks. The tour... More

We traveled to Alaska in June and one of our ports was Sitka. My sister and I did quite a bit of research before booking our excursions and everything we read about Gallant adventures and Paul Davis made our choice easy. Our expectations were met and exceeded for the trip- we saw sea lions, salmon, eagles, a big brown bear,... More

Just back from Sitka and had a truly awe inspiring tour with Gallant Adventures. Paul is an amazing guide - knowledgeable, enthusiastic and kind. We saw everything we wished for and more - whales, otters, puffins, seals, eagles and the sea cave at St. Lazaria Island. Paul is able to get you really close to the animals, but in a... More

Spent the morning on a comfortable boat with the expertise of Alaskan native, boat captain and guide Paul in gorgeous Sitka Sound and outlying volcanic islands. There are not enough adjectives to describe the kind of experience we had that everyone hopes for in visiting Alaska. We saw humpback whales, sea otters, puffins, bald eagles, jumping salmon, sea lions and... More
