When I heard you could snorkel in Alaska I knew I had to do it. Snorkeling is my favorite vacation activity, but we usually do it in the Caribbean. I wasn't worried about being cold or anything. I brought my kids (ages 13 and 18) and my father in law with me last week on this tour. They picked us... More

Family-friendly with very thoughtful and knowledgeable guides! Worth getting the wet suits on! Plan on doing it again!

I was picked up at the cruise port on time and whisked away to my adventure in the cold waters of Alaska. As we rode in a bus , a guide explained how to put the wet suit on and what was going to happen step by step. I would have to say this was the hardest part and it... More

Had a great experience at Snorkel Alaska! We were totally warm (maybe a little too warm - we had a super warm day in Ketchikan and with a 7 mm wet suit on..) and the staff were attentive, helpful and knowledgeable. Thanks Shelby, John and David for such a great experience. We saw lots of starfish, sea urchins, small schools... More

We had no idea what to expect and we were so very glad we did this. Lots of colorful sea life. The wet suits were clean and fit and kept us nice and warm the whole time. The guides were always close by to keep us safe but didn't hover and let us explore at our own pace if we... More

I've always been a bit of a fish, so when I saw that there was a snorkeling excursion I had to do it. I went with 3 friends and I know that two of them didn't enjoy it quite so much; one of them got a little claustrophobic in the wetsuit, and the other was not a fan of putting... More

Who would think that snorkeling in Alaska is something that sounds fun? IT IS! It was a wonderful experience that I'd highly recommend. They Pick you up from your cruise ship and drive about 10 minutes to put on your gear. The 7 mm wetsuit keeps you plenty warm-don't worry at all about being cold. There are booties, a hood,... More
