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.

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

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....
