“Wonderful trip”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

We had a wonderful wildlife viewing trip during the herring spawning season in April. Captain Ryan is knowledgable, friendly, and great with the 8 year old we had aboard! The hot tea and snacks were a welcome addition on a cold spring day.

“memories of a lifetime”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

We can't say enough great things about Ryan and our whale watching tour with him. We couldn't have asked for a better captain. He was so friendly and really immediately felt like an old friend. Our only request was to see whales and that we did...but on top of that, he took us down an inlet that was so beautiful to see the scenery. We also saw sea lions and a bald eagle along the way. Would highly recommend him and will definitely be telling all of our friends about him

“Amazing Experience”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

We had the most wonderful adventure with Captain Ryan. My children, sister, cousin and I wanted to see whales, sea otters and bald eagles. We saw them all and them some. To be able to sit in the water with no engines running and listen to the whales breathe was an experience of a lifetime. We saw so many whales that I lost count. Captain Ryan is friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. I would recommend this experience to anyone!!!

“Fantastic Excursion in Sitka Alaska!”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Our cruise vacation to Alaska was spectacular due to the unforgettable excursion in Sitka with Captain Ryan. On July 4th Captain Ryan took our family, 3 of us, on a private excursion on his boat. He exceeded all of our expectations with an unbelievable wildlife water tour that included starfish, jelly fish, salmon spawning, sea otters, bald eagles, brown bears, deer, and finally a whale tail and blow hole. We had an unbelievable tour that we will never forget!
I recommend Captain Ryan to all who visit Sitka, Alaska. Safety is his first priority. But, he is also friendly, personable, knowledgeable and definitely interested in making this the best experience possible for all. Thank you Captain Ryan.
