We booked a week before our cruise for a second whale watching excursion. We consider ourselves very lucky to book with Captain Paul and one other couple. Each tour will be customized to the weather and sea conditions and your goals for the trip. We saw spectacular whale sightings and sea lions feeding and sunning, seals, and playful sea otters....

There are no words to adequately describe the WONDERFUL adventure with Paul, owner of Gallant Adventures, on his wildlife tour. We saw whales, eagles, sea otters, puffin, a volcano, just to name some of what I consider highlights. There was plenty more to enjoy as well. Paul knows how to find what is of interest to the people onboard. He... More

Our family was on a cruise that stopped in Sitka, and rather than book through the ship's shore excursions, my brother found Paul's company. By far, it was the most memorable day on the week cruise, not only because of the wildlife we saw, but because it was such an intimate, organic experience. Paul met us as we got off... More

Bears, whales, sea otters! I was able to join Captain Paul on a trip through work. He knew every hot spot to go and we saw everything on our wish list! He had tons of local knowledge, history and stories and even knew some of the whales that he knew by name. Great time, great captain, don't forget to ask... More

Don't miss your chance to take an extended wildlife tour with Paul Davis from Gallant Adventures! My friend and I spent roughly six hours with Paul on his boat and the trip was phenomenal. Paul knows exactly where to find all the best wildlife and takes you to some absolutely spectacular spots near Sitka. Only 20 minutes after leaving the... More

Paul customized the trip around the current conditions to give us the best opportunities to see amazing wildlife. He even made sure to position the boat for the best photographic lighting possible! I would take this tour again without... More

Paul is very enthusiastic and knowledgable about the area, flora and fauna. His love for the Sitka Sound and it's wildlife is contagious. I also appreciated being on... More

Paul knows his environment and wildlife well, and where to find the wildlife. Paul is an enthusiastic and informative guide and host. We saw waterfalls, humpback and grey whales,... More

I always check trip adviser and read several reviews before finalizing my plans. Gallant Adventures is everything I read about on trip adviser and more. Since it is a small group tour we were able to see all the wildlife and take great photos. Our group was wonderful and our captain was so helpful with his explanations as well as... More

Great small personal tour of Sitka. There were only 4 people on our tour. We saw a variety of animals- salmon, whales, otters, puffins and beautiful scenery. He was very personable and knowledgeable and has an excitement and enthusiasm for the beauty of Sitka. I was on a cruise ship so he is very mindful of timing so you will... More
