Gallant Adventures was highly recommend by a local Sitka resident. We set out on the vast waters, sun kissing my face. I could taste the salt when I licked my lips. Exhillerating! We immediately encountered wild life. The captain was very knowledgeable. He informed the crew of species, their behavior and diet. My favorite part was seeing the whales! The... More

there are so many other great reviews for this tour and I can just add my voice to them all and say thank you! We were on a cruise ship and I even felt a little guilty - Paul's tour was just so much better, we had a smaller boat and could get right into all the bats and caves... More

My husband, my daughter and I had the time of our lives, seriously! We booked the marine wildlife/hot springs combo tour and let me first say what a great time we had with Paul. You can tell he is passionate at what he does, he's patient, fun, great with kids and really know his stuff! My daughter is 7 years... More

The reviews for Captain Paul speak for themselves! When I make it back to Sitka I'll ride with Paul again. We had good weather and were lucky to see several whales, sea otters, sea lions, seals and tons of birds. The boat trip was easily one of the highlights (if not the highlight) of my time in Sitka. Call Paul... More

This tour was fantastic. The whales were so close to the boat it felt like you could reach out and touch them. We saw so much wild life. Paul knows exactly where to take you. He was very knowledgable and friendly. He also gave us a snack of the most delicious smoked salmon. Highly recommend; if you're considering a Sitka... More

We had a great afternoon with Paul. He was a great tour guide and you could tell he loved what he did. We saw otters, sea lions, whales, puffins in flight (ha, they would not land for us). He didn't rush us. His boat is a nice fit for 6 people. Some of us hung out outside and some inside.... More

This was a fantastic time! We had great weather and good luck with the animals, but the rest was truly due to a knowledgeable, kind and experienced guide. I'm so grateful that we were able to experience the fantastic wildlife with a native Alaskan who truly loves what he does. He kept up conversation throughout the trip, gave recommendations but...
