We had an amazing trip! Very competent captain that got us to the trail head to spite less than ideal weather. Thank you True North!

I did the ultimate which was great. Some kayaking and some kayaking. Quite demanding. I'm in OK shape and not an experienced hiker and though it was tough, definitely doable. Great equipment, great crew, great itinerary. Make sure to bring plenty of water, snacks and a lunch. Also LAYERS - temperature changes are quite drastic between being on the water, going through the forest and being out in the sun. I would say hiking shoes optional, trail is well kept and not that steep - sneakers fine in most cases. My wife had zero kayaking experience and it was fine. Tandem kayak so I sat in the back and did the steering and most of the paddling and it was totally fine.

I hate to even give this a 1 but I have to. Where do I begin. We took the water taxi to drop our parents and our friends off on the hike, we decided to take the 1 hour wildlife tour instead. Upon dropping off our group we asked the driver of the water taxi when they should report to the pick up point and she said she has no idea. 🤦🏻‍♀️ maybe 4 maybe 430 We then asked about bear spray, which was told to us when they booked the hike, it would be provided, she had no bear spray, we were also told we be provided with water, nothing. So seems the frills that would set a company apart where all just said to bring you in. Once dropping off the group we thought we were starting our $200.00 1 hour wildlife tour… it was 10 minutes. We saw a whale which we were excited about but instead of trying to follow it, our driver went in the opposite direction. She said we should be happy to see it. They didn’t tell us the drive to drop the group off was also part of our tour. So in total we had a 10 minute tour and a 50 minute drive out and back. Upon return we asked Peggy about 1. The 10 minute wildlife tour and about dropping our family off with nothing. No bear spray, no direction, no water, no map. Her responses all very sarcastic. Did they ask for bear spray? We would never tell you water is included! And the ride out to drop off the tour is part of your hour. Sorry your unhappy but it’s not my business. We explained to her that they just dropped off to senior citizens with no direction and she said they should’ve booked a guided tour. 😳 Hopefully the time the driver told them is correct and it’s not earlier or later and our family is left. If it would’ve been explained the boat ride to drop off at the island was going to eat into our 1 hour long wildlife tour we would’ve booked something different. Completely ripped off on that tour… but hey we should be lucky we saw a whale. Sooooooo do not waste your time and money on this company, they only care about getting your money and then service is extremely poor!!!!!!! We’ve done plenty of tours here and this is by far the worst company we have ever felt with

We did the - hour kayaking trip to Kachemak Bay. An water taxi takes you out to Yukon Island where you get a lesson and launch from the shore. The guides are lovely and well-informed. There lots of beautiful scenery and some wildlife to enjoy. A little chillier than we expected for July, so wear your layers and bring some dry clothes for afterwards. Don't worry about footwear, True North provides rubber boots.

A perfect day! The water taxi dropped us off at a beach close to Halibut Cove with our wonderful guide, Alex. We kayaked into Halibut Cove where a tour by water is the best way to see it. We stopped for a yummy coffee, then headed back out and made our way to the Saddle Trailhead. After securing our kayaks we hiked to the Grewingk Glacier Lake--about 2 miles. The lake is full of icebergs and oh so gorgeous. We returned to the Trailhead where the water taxi met us and we crossed Kachemak Bay about 5pm. Alex was knowledgeable, fun, funny, charming, just perfect. I highly recommend the Ultimate Tour.
