I would definitely do this again. The boat was a perfect size and the guide was excellent and knowledgeable. It was beautiful being out on the water and we saw lots of wildlife such as Whales, otters, sea lions, and plenty of fish.I think he would be pleased if you didn't see anything. It was just such a beautiful experience. The guide provided drinks and snacks. I really think this is the best way to do this type of outing

We had a great wildlife tour with Captain Chris. He is a skilled captain and shares the natural history of the area with great skill and enthusiasm. The weather was iffy, Chris did the best job possible. Loved it!

Brian answered all our questions in depth, shared his unusual Alaskan life experiences, and brought along excellent binoculars. We saw a minke whale (!) otters (our main desire) Stellar sea lions, and bald eagles. We looked for bears, too. It was a very informative and beautiful tour.

Brian was a wonderful tour guide and a pleasure to do business.. He was flexible when our ship was late arriving and arranged our tour to accommodate some special interests we had expressed. He is very knowledgable about the marine life and the general area. I would highly recommend iSitka Sound Tours. A great experience for our adult family

Individualized tour on a small (27') but safe, comfortable boat. Very knowledgeable captain. My wife and I visited Sitka on Oceania Regatta cruise ship. We had arranged for the tour directly with Brian by phone. Comparing notes with other ship passengers later, it was clear that our tour was much better and less expensive than the excursions booked through the cruise line.
