We took the Allen Marine cataman tour out of Sitka, Alaska. We immendiately encountered sea lions sleeping on one of the can buoys. After a short trip we turned into Readout Bay and saw several sea otters floating among the kelp. Bald Eagles flew overhead. We spotted seals near a spot where a short waterfall led from a freshwater lake... More

We took an Allen Marine excursion in SItka as part of our cruise to Alaska. The owner captained the boat we took along the coast of Sitka, where we saw a brown bear, lots and lots of whales (including a baby), otters, harbor seals, and bald eagles. The crew on the boat offered just the right amount and type of... More

This was honestly the highlight of our Alaska trip. We had gone back and forth on whether or not we would book the excursion, and we are so glad we did! We also lucked out an had an absolutely gorgeous day for our adventure. The crew on the boat were great and very knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife.... More

While in Sitka, we took part in the Sea Other & Wildlife Quest tour. It was a 3-hour cruise in Sitka Sound on a waterjet catamaran. We were told to expect to see sea otters which we did, but we were surprised not only to see humpback whales but to sail amongst them. No matter how often one sees whales... More

Guides were great, tons of nature education presented in a fun way. Saw humpbacks on the way to island. Saw tons of starfish on the island and learned about the foliage and life... More

We boarded the Alaskan Dream for a nine-day cruise from Sitka to Ketchikan. The customer service on this tour was excellent. I think the mantra of the crew is, "we'll make that happen". I was traveling with someone who is somewhat mobility impaired and they anticipated most of our needs without us asking. EVERYONE was knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and 100%... More

We took the Sea Otter & Wildlife Quest tour before joining Allen Marine Alaskan Dream for an 11 day cruise of the Inside Passage. From the minute we were met at the airport by the efficient crew to the time we boarded the shuttle bus to the airport in Ketchikan, we were ably cared for by the Allen Marine family... More

I booked this excursion aboard an Oceania cruise. I understand that it can be booked on-line for a lesser cost, In any case I was thrilled with the trip. We saw all the wildlife that they advertised and the scenic views were lovely. Naturalist guides were well informed and eager to answer any questions. Snacks aboard the ship were an... More

You can't believe the beauty of Sitka! The catamaran cruise is the highlight of this 3 part trip. Our catamaran guide was Leanora. Her knowledge and sparkling... More

We had a fantastic time including getting to see a humpback whale do bubble netting up close. Also saw otters, harbour seals, bald eagles and coastal brown bears. The captain was very knowledgeable and did a great job letting us see the wildlife without disturbing them.
