We made reservations the evening before our morning tour with no problem. When we arrived, we were given boots to borrow and headed out on the boat to take us to the small island where the kayaks are stored. The 20 minute boat ride was fun (stay inside if you want to stay dry), but our 16 year-old was a... More

Full disclosure, I did the same 1/2 day Yukon Island trip with True North last year and it was excellent. Knowledgeable guide who took us around lots of nooks and crannies. Lots of time on the water. This year, not so much. I convinced several friends visiting from out of town it would be worth it to fork over 115... More

True North Kayak Adventures provides all necessary equipment for the tour. Both guides were knowledgeable and made us feel comfortable, especially since it was our first time kayaking. They specifically took us to places where we saw otters, eagles, and whales at a distance. In addition, we were given light snacks before boarding the water taxi once more which was... More

We had the opportunity to camp at a yurt and kayak in Kachemak Bay. True North delivered our kayaks ahead of time, so that they were ready and waiting when we arrived by water taxi. That meant we didn't have to help unload them or drag them up the (very rocky) beach at our yurt site. Everything went smoothly and... More

Getting out on a sea kayak is a wonderful way to experience the beautiful coastline and islands close to Homer. We caught a water taxi for approximately 20 minutes to the island where our kayaks were stored, seeing whales, otters and puffins along the way. We took an early morning tour as it was a super low tide and were... More

True North Kayaking provided us with a wonderful tour of Kachemak Bay out of Homer, Alaska. We opted for the 3/4 day kayak trip and it was the perfect combination of kayaking and explanations by Paul, our expert guide. The water taxi took us out to a remote island where we were given life jackets, kayaks and paddles, and then... More

We took a small tour (3/4 day trip). Was 5 of us and a guide. Guide was pleasant and very informative. She taught us first-timers how to do things and was awesome about letting us know how to be safe in a kayak! All equipment seemed nice and intact. We lucked out and had a great day with almost no...

Very friendly and helpful. I've never been kayaking in complete rain gear including boots before! We were there on a gorgeous sunny day, and the water was very calm. On the boat ride back we were lucky to be blessed with humpback whale sightings! And the boat driver dropped us on the side of the spit near our cruise ship... More

They offered us what we wanted and gave us all the advice needed for a successful camping /kayaking experience. It was a great success which we owe to them for having taken us to the right place. Excellent judgement of what we desired. Would recommend them to anyone without any hesitation. Keep up the good work True North.

Paul was a terrific guide. Very knowledgable. All the staff were helpful and friendly. The other guests in the group were really nice and interesting. The 1/2 day excursion was just enough and we saw humpback and minke whales, sea otters, all types of birds, and we circumnavigated Yukon Island which is truly a natural treasure.

Thank gfarom1
