We had booked a private boat (for 6) six years ago and had a fantastic experience. This time our travel agent recommended Sitka Sound Tours, and we booked it for 6 again (us and 2 other couples). It was a complete disappointment. We were told...More

I, too, am sorry that you were disappointed with your excursion. However, you were well informed of the weather conditions before our trip and had the opportunity to cancel and spend your time in Sitka enjoying other options. I brief all of my passengers of...More
Our whale watching tour was perfect! I highly recommended 10/10. They were so nice and very knowledgeable! I couldn’t have asked for better people to show us around Sitka!More
Thanks for this awesome review! We had a great day on the water with you too. You all even braved 6 foot swells so you could see whales! After seeing those whales, we tucked back in to see those cute sea otters. If you return...More
That makes for a really special tour. He has a wealth of knowledge to share about pretty much everything that is happening out on the water. We learned about the Alaskan fishing industry, the livelihood of Sitka, the habitats of several of the animals we...More
This is such a nice review. Thanks for your insight. Captain Brian really enjoys "showing off" Sitka to visitors, which is not hard to do, along with fielding questions. So glad you were able to see a bunch of wildlife in their natural habitats, as...More
GREAT EXPERIENCE! Capt. Brian's rules; #1, Don't fall overboard. #2, No stress. We left at 0800, 4 of 6 guests on board. Rainy with the remnants of a storm still pestering Sitka. Capt. Brian met us on the dock an explained that we would be...More
Glad you remembered the rules and stuck to them! So happy a "little Alaskan summer storm" didn't hamper your wildlife tour! Those harbor porpoise were very cool to watch in the lively seas. Captain Brian truly enjoys sharing his local knowledge about Sitka and the...More
I highly recommend this trip. Captain Brian was great and we saw lots of whales and seals. The scenery was breathtaking and it was far better being in a small boat than one of the larger more commercial ones. Captain Brian has so much knowledge...More
Thanks for you awesome review! So happy you were able to see whales and seals! Seals are usually elusive, so a sighting is always fun! We try to be very responsive, as we know travel plans may be last minute or may suddenly change. So...More
Capt Brian knew we would like to see whales and so advised us when we arrived that due to the fog and mist it would be hard to see whale spouts and thus might not see a whale. He left the decision up to us...More
Thanks for you wonderful review. You definitely absorbed many details from your tour, which makes us super happy! Good thing you decided fog and mist wouldn't dampen your day, as we were able to see just about everything, including whales! In particular whales are difficult...More
Captain Brian did a fine job showing us special places in Sitka Sound for wildlife by boat-- we say deer, humpback whales, sea otters, bald eagles, marbled murrelets , and more. Brian is a great guide, informative and patient. And we got the extra benefit...More
Thanks for your review! Happy to hear your enjoyed your wildlife tour! Those rafts of sea otters were sure cute, and made great pictures. The deer in the bay were a pleasant surprise. That whale was a little shy, but so glad you both saw...More
We had an amazing tour. Brian was informative, and always stopped so we could see the wildlife. We would highly recommended the tour.
Thank you for you nice review and recommendation. Glad we were able to show you what Sitka Sound has to offer! Captain Brian enjoys sharing his local knowledge and showing off beautiful Sitka!
Brian was such a laid-back, relaxed captain, getting as excited about rhino auklets as about the stellar sea lions. It was so refreshing to pass by the great big vessels with their dozen or more seats, and tool on by in our little boat of...More
Thank you so much for your insightful and detailed review. Captain Brian had a great time with you. Those porpoises were an amazing experience for sure! Please call us again if you come back to Sitka, so we can show you more!
Captain Brian went out of his way to accommodate our group in showing us as much local wildlife as possible. He is knowledgeable and very kind - helping with a wheelchair and for us to safely board the boat. Def recommend!
Thank you for your kind review. Captain Brian had a great time showing your group around Sitka Sound. Thrilled we could accommodate you! Call us if you visit Sitka again!
