Captain Louis Hoock is amazing! We sailed the inside passage of Southeast Alaska and he sailed us to remote islands few are able to go. He accommodated our wishes to seek Bald Eagles, Whales & Bears and knew just where to go. He is an excellent chef and we ate like kings. I highly recommend Alaska Adventure Sailing. The trip was an incredible adventure!

After much debate about the best way to see the Southeast Alaska coast, we settled on Alaska Adventure Sailing and Captain Louis Hoock. We wanted a ‘special’ experience to celebrate our 60th birthdays. It’s certainly one of the best travel decisions we have ever taken. We hired Louis and the Arcturus for six days for a trip from Juneau to Petersburg - and took in the sights of Funter Bay, Basket Bay, Warm Springs Bay, Whitney Island, Thomas Bay and the Baird Glacier and LeConte Bay/Glacier. We had a simply fantastic time. Louis is a superb captain and practises safe navigation of his sturdy steel-hulled vessel. However, Louis is not just a good sailor - he’s also a fantastic cook and host - with endless energy and thirst for adventure. I have attached a bunch of photos to this review - because they share the experience far better than words. I guess my advice for others would be that the Arcturus is a fine vessel, but don’t expect the comforts of a cruise liner - because that it is not. You are talking about the level of a comfortable RV afloat. Secondly, I’d say go prepared to throw yourself into the experience and keep up with Louis’ boundless energy to entertain you! Thirdly, take waterproofs, layered clothing and gum boots - be prepared for any/all conditions. Finally, above all, do go: We recommend Alaska Adventure Sailing without reservation - it is a once in a lifetime experience that you will never forget.

We took our family of 5 (including 3 boys ages 15-21) for an 8-day Alaskan sailing adventure with Captain Louie Hoock aboard the S/V Arcturus. It turned out to be the trip of a lifetime. The Arcturus is very spacious, and Louie provided everything we could need or want. During our trip, we kayaked among icebergs, hiked in the deep woods, paddle-boarded at the foot of a waterfall, and lounged in natural hot springs. Along the way, we saw whales, seals, otter, eagles, deer, and goats. We caught trout, rockfish, and crabs--all of which we cooked and ate. Southeast Alaska is beautiful and remote, and the only way to really see it is by boat. I can't adequately describe how thrilled we are that we eschewed the big cruise ships to experience SE Alaska up close with our own personal caption and guide, Louie Hoock. I cannot recommend Alaska Adventure Sailing highly enough!

Our trip was canceled at the last minute after we had already arrived in Alaska due to a family medical emergency for our captain. Despite this unforeseen circumstance, I still give Louie the highest rating and endorsement possible. He went above and beyond at time when he was overseas caring for his family member and obviously had many other things on his mind. We still had an unbelievably memorable trip in Alaska and this was in large part due to Louie's help and advice. He generously allowed us to lodge on his boat as we had no lodging booked and summer lodging is hard to come by; even arranging for a friend to meet us at the boat with a champagne welcome! He kept in contact with us while we were in Alaska - answering questions about the area, booking excursions with companies he knew & trusted, offering priceless advice & insight and ensuring that although our trip did not go as planned, we still had the vacation of a lifetime. We met numerous people throughout our trip that know Louie and had nothing but wonderful things to say about what a good, fun loving person he is. We were fortunate enough to meet him just for a day as he arrived back in Alaska as we were leaving. He promptly returned our trip deposit and even picked us up from an excursion we were on. We were glad we got to meet him and even happier that he was able to get his family member stabilized and back to the US for treatment & care. Our trip to Alaska was full of glaciers, wildlife, gorgeous scenery, fjords, whale watching, ferry rides and a lifetime memories - thanks to Louie. I would not hesitate to recommend Alaska Adventure Sailing to anyone.

Just finished a great week sailing in the spacious and comfortable Arcturus. Louis went out of his way to make our trip memorable by tailoring activities to suit our group, we fished, caught crab, hiked, visited glaciers, forests and lighthouses, and, had a private fireworks display for the 4th. Overall an amazing experience
