We were in Sitka for one day during our cruise and were referred to Gallant Adventures by another small tour operator who was already booked for the day. Paul took us out in his boat with one other small group and we had an amazing time exploring Sitka Sound and many of the small islands. We saw several humpback whales,... More

My husband and I visited family in Sitka for a few days last week. Our daughter recommended we take a wildlife water tour even though we live near the water in WA and are pretty familiar with the wildlife in the area and also, my husband gets a bit sea sick. We agreed, but were a bit skeptical. It is... More

Paul is experienced and confident navigating the waters around Baranof Island and Sitka Sound. The trip was exciting and I saw so much more of Sitka than I have in all my years of coming up here. It would not have been the same without Paul's stories and thorough knowledge of species we encountered. Thanks again Paul!

This was the best trip we have ever enjoyed by far! Paul stayed in touch with us the entire time after we booked. Met us at the dock right on time, sent us text messages prior to cruise ship arrival. There were only four of us, we had plenty of room on his comfortable boat. Weather was perfect, boat has... More

Paul is very accommodating person. He wants you to have the best experience you can possibly have. I would book with him again in a heartbeat! My sister and I both agree it was the best tour on all the trips we have taken together. Her daughter has booked twice with Paul and recommended him to us when she heard... More

We book with Paul for our Alaskan cruise. The communication & transaction was seamless. Let me just say if you want to get a true feel for Sitka, this is the way to do it. Even if you didn't see one animal, the scenery in itself is beautiful. But Paul will make sure you see animals. It was amazing we... More

Paul is quite possibly the best tour guide ever. At the time of our tour, because the weather was inclement, he gave us the option of changing times to later in the afternoon, as the weather was supposed to clear, and there would only be one other couple. (which we did). He is extremely knowledgeable of the area, super friendly,... More

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.
