We had a great time on our afternoon outing to Goddard Hot Springs with Captain Xander. Communication with him during the planning process was easy and he responded promptly with any questions. He was punctual for pickup/drop offs, and was a great tour guide on the boat ride down and back to the hot springs. He taught us a lot about the history of the area and made solid recommendations for how we spent the rest of our time in Sitka. An added bonus was sharing the trip with his sweet dog, Finn, who also made us feel most welcome! Our trip with Captain Xander was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. Very much recommend!

Captain Xander took our family of 5 to a drop off and pick up at the fort Rousseau ruins and also a wildlife viewing tour by boat. We had a great time, saw whales and sea otters. He gave great info on the history of the area, would recommend to anyone looking for a boat adventure during their visit to Sitka. Was one of our highlights while we were in the area.

I caught a ride from Capt. Xander and his trusty companion Finn the Labrador retriever over to Mt. Edgecumbe for an overnight backpacking trip. Capt. Cander was great: outgoing, genuine, knowledgeable, and a steady captain. He gave me a bunch of very helpful advice on the trail and wildlife conditions for my overnight trip, as well as recommendations for Sitka on the return trip. Would highly recommend to reach out to Capt. Xander are looking for a real adventure outside of the touristy downtown area.

The word wow doesn’t begin to describe this experience!!! Captain Xander made this trip incredible!!! He geared it completely toward what I wanted to see and do. At one point we found our self in the midst of at least 20 gray whales, which was fabulous! It was a combination historical and wildlife tour, so I learned a great deal about the area and it’s history as well as about the wildlife both on land and in the water… I would go back to Sitka to do a tour with Captain Xander again and again and again…Captain Xander was willing to take me by myself, but I told someone on the plane flying into Sitka about my plans, so he joined us…It was just the three of us on the water for three hours, and it was unbelievable beyond words!
