“The way to tour the glaciers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We took a 3 hour tour were we went out and saw glaciers, wild life and landed on a beach. The captain was informative and very friendly.

On our way back we picked up a group of kayakers.

We had a lucky break with the weather (no rain)! So visibility was great.

Free drinks were available for us at all times.

“Excellent personalized way to see Prince William Sound”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

We did a sight seeing tour of Prince William Sound from Whittier. Although their main business is water taxi and kayak tours, they kindly fit us in and after dropping off a kayak group, we had a fabulous, personalized tour of the sound. Saw several glaciers up close, seals on an ice flo at the bottom of one of the glaciers, numerous otters, and birds! Brook and Captain Ben were fabulous-very knowledgeable about the area and all about ensuring we had a great experience. This is the company to boom with!!

“Top Notch in Every Way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2011

My adult family of six booked an all day charter/tour with Brooke aboard his beautiful boat, the Ellen. The boat was very comfortable and safe and Brooke, the Captain and owner was professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. Don't waste your time on one of the big "head boats". For about the same price you get into all the nooks and crannies of Prince William Sound and learn way more with Captain Brooke. We have traveled extensively and this is one of the best vacation outings we have ever done.

“A water taxi to amazing glaciers and kayak beaches in Prince William Sound”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2011

Epic Charters offers kayakers, adventurers, and natural history buffs an excellent water taxi service into the amazing glacial fjords, forested beaches, cabins, and islands of Prince William Sound. We have used their water taxi service to a half dozen beaches from Harriman Fjord to Applegate Island for parties up to ten people with kayaks and gear. Their boats are fast and their shared ride service saves flexible boaters hundreds of dollars in taxi fees accessing remote portions of the Sound. They offer free parking to patrons with is a big plus as Whittier is an impossible place to find affordable parking compared with other southcentral sea kayaking communities like Seward and Homer. They have a convenient dock of their own which makes things very easy. There is often a cooler of cold beverage waiting on the back deck when they pick you up after a two week adventure deep in the wilderness. Very friendly and safe captains who pick up boaters on beaches and in conditions which challenge some of the other less service minded options.
