On a beautiful, even sunny, day in Sitka we showed up for the tour I booked about 6 months ago. My husband and I and 2 other people had the privilege of riding in Paul Davis' boat all around the waters of Sitka. Besides having a background in marine biology and geology, Paul is the ultimate outdoorsman, telling stories of... More

We went on a fantastic 3 hour wildlife tour with Capt. Paul Davis today! Paul was very informative and clearly knows the area very well. He is very enthusiastic about the wildlife, clearly skilled with maneuvering the boat and he was just a nice guy. We saw 2 humpback whales (one we watched up close and followed for a while),... More

Paul Davis of Gallant Adventures delivers up close and personal service. We had the best time and Paul was very knowledgeable of the area. No bid crowds to deal with. He takes his time and lets you photograph the subjects. Thanks Paul!!!!!

Cpt. Paul was incredible!!!! We chased a group of orca whales threw Sitka Sound for almost 45 minutes. Two were so close they swam under our boat!!!!!! Next was puffins and sea otters. On the way back we saw a Humpback spout, and went to check it out. It was the best wildlife seeing trip I have ever been on!!... More

My wife, me and two other couples had the pleasure of experiencing a wonderful morning of whale watching,otter observing,seal sightings, and watching a coastal brown bear foraging along the shore. Paul Davis is a great guy with an engaging personality who answered every question with enthusiastic factual answers. He previously worked in wildlife research in northern Alaska and has parlayed...

Captain Bill Davis and Captain Jim Seeland arranged an incredible custom tour with their two boats and our group of ten people. We saw dozens of bald eagles, otters, otter rafts, seals and whales. Both captains gave each group a history of their beloved Sitka. We had a very enjoyable morning with them and would definitely recommend them.

Paul is the master of making the perfect experience! Such a great personality coupled with two types of whales, sea otters, seals, brown bear. He gets as excited as his passengers. Such a fantastic value. This is a must book when looking for a personal tour of the Sitka wildlife.

Paul Davis was our Captian for the trip. His knowledge for the geology, wildlife and culture was outstanding. We saw brown bear, whales, otters and an assortment of birds which he named all. Paul went out of his way to insure we had a wonderful outing. Thanks Paul.

We thoroughly enjoyed our day on the boat with Paul, the owner and operator of Gallant Adventures. He knows the places to go and where the wildlife will most likely be. He is a very friendly, knowledgable local, born in Alaska, who obviously does what he loves and enjoys sharing the adventure! We were able to carefully motor close to... More
