What a fantastic trip with Captain Hoock( yes his real name). Six of us went from Sitka to Juno in his 54 foot sailboat, which was both comfortable and sea worthy. Captain Hoock is a knowledgeable and expert captain who has a great eye for seeing the wildlife. He is a marvelous chef and even planned and cooked for two people on our trip who were gluten free. On our last day at sea he made crab (caught the night before in his crab pots) cakes Benedict.
What a wonderful trip. I'm ready to go again!

We had a great time sailing on Arcturus. It is warm and super comfortable. We saw whales and caught lots of fish, hung out in hot springs, went hiking.Captain Hoock is fun and knows his stuff--and a great cook besides. It was a fantastic vacation, and we would do it again in a minute.

We sailed with Alaska Adventure Sailing on a 4-day tour of Sitka Sound and it was great! During the day it was hot springs, fishing, animal watching, hiking, and sailing; nights were spend eating and sleeping on the boat. Each night we anchored at a different place - all beautiful. The boat "Arcturus" comfortably slept a party of 6. Captain Hoock is a very capable sailor, cook, guide, and overall entertainment specialist, with wide knowledge of local things to see and do. Highlights were Goddard Hot Springs, sea lion locales, puffin rookeries, a climb up Mt. Edgecomb, and a visit to an Alaska state salmon hatchery. I highly recommend it!

Captain Hoock made an amazing experience for us for 8 days on his boat. We sailed from Juneau to Sitka and along the way saw humpback whales, brown and black bear, seals, porpoises, sea otters, many bald eagles. We caught and ate fish and crab every single day. The soak at the Hot Spring was absolutely divine - there were hardly any other people there. This is an amazing experience for families, couples, groups of friends...everyone really. So awesome!

Stepped aboard in Sitka and the adventure was on. Cpt. Hoock is a top notch sailor, fishing guide, and cook who shares his extensive knowledge of the areas flora, fauna, history, and natural features. Every day brings a new scenic sail and every night a gourmet meal or a feast of the days catch in a secluded bay. Arcturus S/V provides a comfortable well equipped platform to experience SE Alaska in an intimate relaxed way.
