Water taxi was easy to find, arrived on time. Pilot Dave was friendly and there were seats out of the wind. Dave's travel companion was very interesting.

What a great way to see Alaska!!! Water taxi to our hiking trail. Hiked to the glacier and across the saddleback trail. Pick up 4 hours later right on time. Spent time whale watching in the cove. Magical day, great people!!!

The best way to see Gull Island and other birds, wildlife and beauty is to take Dave's water taxi (Ashore Water Taxi). Dave did a great job of helping us find Puffins, eagles and Mountain Goats and the scenery was beautiful.

Our captain regaled us with history and points of interest as we crossed the bay. His dog was "the greeter" and hung out with us on the boat.
