After our scheduled wildlife boat tour was cancelled due to bad weather, Captain Paul worked around our travel schedule to get us out for a few hours before we had to fly out. He tracked down dozens of humpback whales and had such an infectious enthusiasm for the creatures and the ride. Definitely a high point of our trip, and definitely recommend!

This is the best tour we have ever taken! Thank you Paul for giving our family a truly memorable time together. We saw whales, bears, bald eagles, seals, otters! What more could we ask for! You are great, and many thanks again!

This was, without a doubt, the best whale-watching experience ever. We saw countless humpbacks, seals, sea lions, and sea otters. We even saw two mama sea otters carrying their babies on their tummies! Paul is an excellent captain and tour guide and his boat is the cleanest excursion boat we've ever been on.

What an excellent tour! Paul certainly knew where the whales were, and he showed us LOTS of them. He also took us to a kelp field, and it was full of otters, including a couple mamas with babies resting on them. We were very impressed with Paul and the entire tour. As a side note... I don't think we have ever been on a cleaner boat!

If you are having doubts about purchasing this excursion....BOOK IT NOW!! This was by far the best private tour we have done! Paul was amazing, it felt like we were on a friends boat, just out for the day! The Discovery Princess was diverted to Sitka after the rockslides in Skagway, and to be honest, I was not thrilled about this port at all. After some research, I knew this was THE tour to book, but her already had 1 tour that day and that was all that was all that was offered on his website. I contacted him and let him know Discovery was going to be in town and he was kind enough to add a second tour for us!! There were 5 of us on his boat, and we saw whales, seals, a mama otter and her baby and bald eagles. Paul knows exactly where to look to make sure we all got to experience the wildlife. It was amazing!! It was a bit rocky and I did squeal a bit (sorry Paul!) but it was such fun. If you book his tour, make sure he takes you thru Bonzai Bay. Probably the most scenic views I have ever witnessed. I loved Sitka and will definitely return to stay a few days. Thank you so much Paul for giving us the best tour EVER!!
