“Group Kayak Camping Trip - Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

We had a blast - 11 adults, 4 days, 2 guides, so many glaciers, tons of wildlife, and maybe a total of 3 other boats seen total. We went on a three night camping trip to Northwestern Lagoon - the water taxi dropped us and all the boats back. We had plenty of paddling, plenty of exploring, and plenty of down time. It felt like being in another world - it was amazing. We were told after the fact that we may have been the largest group they had ever had to work with, but we wouldn't have guessed that at any time. They let us split up payment before the fact, they arranged a ride down from Anchorage, they were very responsive to phone calls and emails, they took us grocery shopping...it was great. I have one caveat - this trip was in August *2012*, not 2013, but the ownership hasn't changed. Looking through my photos to write this review, I would go back in an instant, and I would absolutely work with Adventure Sixth North again.

“Bill & Jay's excellent adventure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Our experience with Adventure Sixty Northwest was top-notch. Bill, Jay and the captain Jess had sharp eyes for wildlife and even though it was late in the season 9/11/13. We saw Orcas, Dall Porpoise, seals, sea lions, otters, puffins, bald eagles, jelly fish, etc. our experience with this company from start to finish was professional and enjoyable. The equipment was great, lunch was great.

“Great trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Had a great day Kayaking, hiking, and enjoying lunch at one of the best viewing pointing I had ever seen. The company provided any wet gear I needed to stay dry and was knowledgable throughout. I recommend everyone to give them their business.

“The Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Adventure 60 North was the only company that I found running kayak trips during the second week in September. All the other companies were done for the season. Everything on this trip was very professionally done. The staff were friendly, approachable and knowledgeable, the water taxi trip out to the bay was on a very comfortable boat with good crew, and effort was made to ensure that everyone was safe on the entire trip without sparing any sense of adventure or fun.
This trip is amazing from the beginning to the end. We were prepared for 90% chance of rain but got one of the best weather days they had had in awhile. We saw abundant wildlife with the boat stopping to point out and watch all the animals, including Orcas. It was amazing to see the glacier up close and to be on the water at the level of a kayak and to paddle through chunks of ice. I have been on quite a number of tours like this and this is by far the best. Well worth every penny!

“Incredible kayak experience!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

This was THE BEST kayaking excursion I have done in Alaska! Bear Glacier is simply amazing! The staff at Adventure Sixty North are top notch. I actually have now done this trip twice and both were equally top notch. I had Jay and Zach for our guides and they were very informative, easy-going, but ensured our safety was their #1 priority. The hot cocoa/tea/coffee was a treat mid-way through our tour and great snacks too! The owner, Rick, and the office staff, were so nice and made sure that we were outfitted appropriately. Great customer service! It is notable that everyone at Adventure Sixty North loves what they do and loves to share this wonderful place with all who sign up for this great adventure! Thanks again! Kristi and Dave
