Ryan is a great skipper. He picked us up from a remote Forest Service Cabin as a water taxi. He was on time, helpful in loading our kayaks and very pleasant. He was appropriately safety conscious - on the ocean - that is crucial. Great trip.

Riding with Captain Ryan was a wonderful experience! His calm and confidence is very reassuring on the water, and he is so friendly we all felt right at home. Aquatic Alaska Adventures is a very safe and welcoming water taxi service.

Ryan recently taxied a group of us over to Kruzof Island for a backpacking trip. He was not only extremely competent as a captain but made us all feel safe and welcome. He is such a nice guy and really a pleasure to spend time with (which is good because if weather is bad or you have a long trip having a good personality is key!). I would definitely recommend him as a sea taxi and wildlife watching service and hope to get a chance to work with him again soon.

Captain Ryan was our transportation to an amazing back packing trip on Kruzoff island near Sitka. He could not have been more accommodating or professional in his service. His safety talk was informative and fun and he put all of us at ease immediately. We had chosen a challenging spot to start our hike in that the shore is exposed to the ocean and wave action can make landing a boat difficult. I was so impressed by the way Ryan nosed in to shore and helped us unload our gear smoothly and safely. He showed up to retrieve us well ahead of schedule and offered to just anchor off shore and wait if we wanted more time to enjoy the beach! What a generous captain. I would recommend Aquatic Adventures to any friend.

Our captain, Ryan Kauffman was fantastic. He welcomed us aboard with a friendly smile and a steady hand. Gave us the low-down on his vessel, and we were off! The trip was great in every way, I would highly recommend his business to anyone looking for a true Alaskan adventure.
