Captain Brian was a great host. He navigated Sitka with an abundance of knowledge. We were able to get close enough to watch sea lions sunning themselves on a bouy. We could hear the sea lions communicating with each other.

We had a great wildlife tour with Captain Chris. He is a skilled captain and shares the natural history of the area with great skill and enthusiasm. The weather was iffy, Chris did the best job possible. Loved it!
