Overview
More
Our Galley Gourmet combination 'wildlife viewing and gourmet dinner cruises' have been a highlight event for visitors and locals alike since 2003. The 3.5-hour cruise, aboard our classic, 42-foot yacht, is an experience that has become one of the most popular ways to experience Kodiak. Limit is 6 guests so you’ll need to make a reservation. Our meals feature local seafood and locally grown, organic vegetables. We can accommodate vegetarian and vegan diets. Dress code is “Kodiak Casual.” Bring a camera to capture the beautiful coastal scenery and animals: sea otters, sea lions, puffins, and sometimes whales. We are longtime residents: Marty is the former harbormaster and Marion is a professional photographer. Together we also run the Cliff House B&B.

Be sure to try to include this activity on your schedule. It's well worth the modest price for an enjoyable evening in the beautiful setting of Kodiak Bay. The meal was truly gourmet and it was served quite professionally in a relaxed atmosphere.
