This was a very memorable charter for us, too! We closed our business at the end of September 2014. Thanks to all who elected to explore Alaska's waters with us. Further inquiries may be made to bevandkent@hotmail.com.

Loved our 3-hour tour with Kent. His boat is small (room for 6 maximum), but that just means you don't have to climb over other tourists to see the whales, otters, eagles, puffins, seals, etc. This isn't a "fixed itinerary tour," but Kent finds out...More

We just got off Kent's boat and had a lovely 2 hour trip around the islands. We saw sea otters, several whales, seal lions, harbour seals, bald eagles and searched for bears, but unfortunately didn't get to see one.

Thanks for your kind review! I'm now wondering if someone took my husband's place when I wasn't looking:o. There's really no other place Kent would rather be, than on the ocean, so thanks for giving him an excuse to be there. Bev
