While visiting my friend in Ketchikan, she recommended we try the Diva Paddle and we had a BLAST! The leaders who took us were professional, knowledgeable and FRIENDLY! We went out for a little over an hour, padded across to Pennock Island, hung around there for awhile, then paddled back. They provided everything, kayak, paddle, safety gear, quick instruction and off we went. I paddle a bit where I live near Bar Harbor, Maine so getting on the water in Ketchikan was important and THIS WAS A GREAT CREW!
We booked a wonderful day with Southeast Sea Kayaks. Our captain was Greg (an owner) and our kayak guide was James. We were blessed with beautiful weather, and had only 2 people (and James) total in our group. We saw a couple harbor seals, one which came up and touched James' kayak. Had such a peaceful time in the kayak, seeing bald eagles flying and the beautiful scenery. Delicious smoked salmon snack! Great hospitality -- would definitely return!
This is a small independent company, family owned, not shown on any cruise ship listing. But they are on the web site for Ketchikan. There is a very good reason for this, no crowds, very personal service. Open to all levels, but could be better suited for beginner to experience level kayaker. But they do have patience and experience to teach so no worry. What a thrill to paddle through the creek with salmon jumping on both sides of the kayak. The islands where just magnificent and seeing that Bald Eagle nest with the young ones in it was just the highlight of the day. And by the way the wife did feel that Seal bumping the Kayak, but being the good sport that she is, did not freak out. If ever we do go back on another Alaska cruise and are still able to , we certainly will be booking again with this company. So if you are tired of the crowds and kayaking is your sport, you must try this company.
