I would gladly do this trip again. Went as part of a cruise excursion and it was fantastic. We basically explored the bay area looking for wildlife in a comfortable fast boat. You could stay inside and be quiet and comfy or go outside on the deck for a better view (very safe). Saw sea lions, otters, humpbacks, many birds... More

This was our second trip with Allen Marine out of Sitka. We visited by cruise ship and the access to the tour boat couldn't have been easier! It was practically at the foot of the gangway. The Allen Marine boats are catamarans, very stable and are an excellent platform for educational information on the first level and photography and outside... More

This cruise was packed with lots of sightings of wildlife - whales, sea lions, bald eagles and sea otters (a mother otter had her baby on her stomach). The company provided great crew who knew lots of stories about the birds and animals, their habits and life cycles. They knew where to go to find specific organisms and although the... More

This was undoubtedly the best excursion of eight that we took during our 12 day cruise to Alaska. The boat was so comfortable with inside seating and plenty of stainless steel rails outside to make anyone comfortable. They even provided excellent 7 power binoculars at each seat for every passenger. What a great company! We saw and the captain brought... More

This was our second time in Sitka, but the first time using this tour company. This was one of our favorite tours that we took. We were able to see whales up front and personal. Perhaps we were lucky, but the employees and the captain had such great attitudes, which made the experience so much better. Highly recommend this company.

We used Allen as a booked excursion through Crystal Cruise Lines. They provided the water portion which was billed as Otters, but included Otters, Sealions, Eagles and Humpback wales. Stellar crew and wonderful spotting.

We were told that we had an unbelievably perfect weather day for sightseeing on the waters of Sitka. It was smooth sailing, and a great day to view Bald Eagles, Sea Otter, Minke and Humpback Whales. The staff were very well informed and the boat was immaculate. They had maps and binoculars on each seat, and there was plenty of... More

THIS TOUR DELIVERED! What an awesome way to spend the morning in Sitka! We saw a large group of orcas, a few humpbacks, a raft of otters, sitka deer, sea lions, eagles... The crew members were knowledgeable and friendly and just as impressed by Mother Nature's creatures as we were. This tour is worth the price. I hope you all... More

This was our 2nd trip with Allen Marine Tour., What an impressive, fantastic family company! Very impressed with the catamaran, crew, facilities and entire tour. The tour was arranged by Regent Seven Seas and we could not have been asked for anything better. The narration was fantastic, the scenery was outstanding - we were able to see sea otters, humpback...

My wife and I had a great experience on this tour. The people could not have been more friendly or knowledgable. We saw all kinds of marine life, including a gray whale which was rare for that time of year. The Captain did a great job finding the wildlife and maneuvering the vessel so everyone could get a great view.... More
