Captain Lewis Hoock is amazingly knowledgeable about sailing, fishing, as well as land and water wildlife. He also knows how to throw a great party. Passengers help with the cooking and sailing, but Lewis leads cooking to new heights. If you have not cruised on...More

This was a great way to see Alaska, and experience different adventures along the way. When asked what we wanted to do and see in Alaska, we listed hiking, kayaking, fishing, whale watching, and seeing glaciers. Captain Hoock designed a trip to accommodate all that...More

Just back from a fabulous trip with Captain Hoock. We did so many different things over 5 days: 2 - 3 different adventures each day. Our Sitka-based trip had quiet anchorages for paddleboarding, first-ever salmon catching, hours of orcas playing all around our boats. It...More

Captain Louis Hoock made this trip most enjoyable and memorable. Three days of great photo opportunities, wonderful food cooked fresh by Captain Hoock from the day's catch (including a trip finale ceviche), and taking advantage of Louis's vast knowledge of SE Alaska.
