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

It is hard to describe this tour, it must be experienced. We had an unbelievable tour with Paul. He is very knowledgable about the area and has a great personality. The whales and other wildlife we seen were fantastic. We made the right choice in booking with a local rather than the cruise line. Paul gave us a very personalized... More

I knew booking a whale watching excursion on my own and not through our cruise ship would give us a better experience and this was by far the best decision I made. Paul from Gallant Adventures gave us an amazing, personalized, warm and entertaining tour of the waters around Sitka and made sure we spotted all the nature and animals... More

Just had probably the most exciting wildlife trip of my life. At one point we were surrounded by humpback whales. A photo opportunity on a plate. Added to that great views of sea otters, sealions, seals and sea birds, all against the backdrop of the mountains. What makes this trip so special, though, is the enthusiasm and knowledge of Paul....

I recently went on an extended tour with Pauli Davis and Gallant Adventures in Sitka, Alaska and am still on a high from the great time that I had! I'd like to start by saying that I live in Sitka and get out quite a bit but I saw more in 5 hours than I had seen in 5 YEARS... More

I was lucky enough to go on a wildlife tour with Cap'n Paul and I am still reeling a week later. I booked a tour with Gallant Advetures rather than an excursion through the cruise line and boy, that turned out to be a great decision! It's a much more intimate experience, being that it's a smaller boat that fits... More

During our B2B Alaskan cruises, we had the opportunity for two whale watching tours, one in Hoonah (Icy Strait) and one in Sitka. Boy, we were so glad we added this adventure with Capt. Paul. We booked ahead of time and had my husband's siblings and spouses with us. Although it was just a little tight, we were all very... More

I recently visited one of my best friends who spent three months living and working in Sitka. While I was there for a short four day visit she told me we had to go out with Paul on one of his boat tours. And boy, she was right! The experience we had with him was indescribable. It absolutely was a... More

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
