Excellent kayak experience with Matt! Had my entire family with me and he was great. Personable, friendly, and knowledgeable. Felt safe the entire time, and even saw awesome wildlife (including bald eagles and sea urchins). Would highly recommend to anyone!

We are a family with children aged 9&11 yrs, we had a kayaking tour with Ketchikan Kayak Co in June 2019. The weather started ok but rain and wind developed while we were out on the water, they took great care of us, we had the right water proof clothing on (provided by KKC) and hot chocolate and warm towels greeted us on our return. My children rate it as one of their highlights of the whole Alaskan trip - seeing wildlife up close from water level. Would definitely book with them again if we return to Alaska.…

The guides were professional and funny. They had great knowledge of the area. The weather was perfect. Saw a bald eagle and other wildlife. Definitely a must tour in Ketchikan. We did a private tour with 4 of us.

My friend used a single kayak, I did double with the guide in the back. Matt, the guide, super cool and fun.

Especially if you are not from the area, this was just an extra treat for me and my friend. If you are from out of state, these guys are definitely going to show you right.…

Hands down our favorite activity in Alaska! We were a part of a small group of 6 people with an amazing local guide. She offered so much information about Ketchikan and it really gave us the "local" experience. The electric bikes were super easy to use and so much fun! The hike was a great opportunity to stretch our legs and the rain forest was breathtaking. I don't have a bad thing to say about this tour, and would certainly recommend it to everyone! Just book it :) P.S. we took this trip in July 2019. For some reason trip advisor won't let me go back that far! Pre Covid.…
