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!

We had a great trip with Captain Xander. He is so kind and knows a lot of local history. It was a beautiful day to go out to Goddard Hot Springs and then he dropped us off at Kanga Bay Public Use Cabin for a lovely overnight, picking us up the next day and taking us back to Sitka. We would definitely book with Tongass Troll and Tours again and recommend it to all. Thanks for a great weekend trip!

Captain Xander was efficient, responsive, fair, knowledgeable, and fun to be around. We had an amazing time at Salmon Lake Cabin and we wouldn’t have gotten there without Alexander.

Took us out to Salmon Lake Cabin for a few days over the 4th of July weekend and picked us up when we were done. Very punctual and helpful with the loading and off-loading of all our gear, people, and dog! Excellent conversation, and made sure all needs were met. Highly recommend Xander!

I traveled from Fairbanks to Sitka w my husband and 1 year old daughter. I was planning a bday surprise for my husband and decided to arrange a trip out to Goddard Hot springs. I contacted Capt Xander by email and he quickly responded with all the information I needed and more! We seamlessly arranged the trip. The day of the trip, He promptly picked us up at the harbor where we stayed and brought us out to the springs. The ride was great, and he provided us with some sitka information and history. The springs were incredible, we soaked for an hour and it was peaceful and beautiful out there. My husband loved it! Would definitely recommend Captain Xander for your trip!
