Ryan was excellent. It was pouring rain but he got us all outfitted and did a great job making the whole day fun. Scenery is amazing even in the fog and rain and Gabe the boat taxi captain was highly entertaining.

I rented a kayak and some gear to paddle for a few days in Prince William Sound. Both kayak and paddles were top class. The best you can find in town and at a very reasonable price. Ryan is great and gave me a lot of valuable tips around where to camp and other practical details. The kind of information and service that makes your kayaking experience much more enjoyable. Definitely a must go if you want to paddle the area.

I don’t always review tour agencies, but when I do, it’s because I think you should rethink your entire itinerary to include kayaking. It was a cold rainy summer morning in Whittier. We loaded the kayaks in a boat, wondering if it was foolish to go chasing glaciers in a kayak while the rain showed no signs of stopping. I looked at Ryan, our guide, as he smiled with a “we got this” smirk that can only be achieved after years of hard earned experience. By the end of the trip, the rain was just background white noise that made the whole experience even more relaxing. That’s the hallmark of a good guide, they can refocus your attention in such a way that even the cold and the rain are things you enjoy. If you’re looking for a kayak trip, book here. If you’re not, also book here and thank me later when you find yourself in the middle of the Sound, surrounded by wild life and admiring how the glacier has polished the walls of rock over millions of years.
