“St.Lazaria Island NWR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

Tthank you for a great trip around St. Lazaria Island, a highllight of our stay in Sitka. Kent was very knowledgable and low-keyed, the perfect captain. Whales came close-up feeding and there were rafts of sea ottters and tufted puffins to admire peacefully from a respectful distance. And the weather was sunny and calm, a perfect morning we will always remember. Alice and Steve

“Amazing!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

This was by far the best money we spent on our trip to Alaska. Great views of the wildlife and Kent is a great guide.

“Sitka Secrets Charters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

I've heard lots of good feedback about Sitka Secrets and wanted to give them a try. I was not disappointed. Captain Kent was great and was very accommodating. I really wanted to see Horned Puffins and he was able to find us a couple. Overall, I was impressed with the value of the trip. The price was reasonable and Kent not only pointed out wildlife but told us a little bit about what we were seeing. Fantastic experience!

Arman,
Thanks! That's a great pic of horned puffins! We see horned puffins only a handful of times every summer and it's always so special to find birds when we go bird watching!

“All that we were hoping for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

We went on a Alaska cruise last summer and the highlight of our trip was our Sitka Secrets expedition. We saw more than our fair share of whales (so exciting!), otters, eagles and other wildlife, and caught enough fish to satisfy us for practically the whole year. Captain Kent was both extremely knowledgable and very efficient in helping us see and do everything we could in the ultimately too-short 4 hours we had. Highly recommended!

“Sitka Alaska”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012

Again, got off the cruise to visit Sitka and found it to be a beautiful town to visit. I loved the buildings and especially the beautiful church in the middle of town, built of weatherboards and was very reminisent of a Russian one. The town that we saw wasn't big and didn't take us long to walk around the streets, take photos and do a bit of shopping for some souveniers
