“Wonderful experience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

The all day trip with Rick and Dorla was my first ever kayak trip. I'm not much of a water person, so the calmness of the areas we traveled to was a great experience for me. The two of them have a vast knowledge of the area and are so easy going. Even in a few hours, you feel like you have known them for years. You won't go wrong in booking a trip with them!

My husband and I stayed with Richard and Dorle last August and I am embarrasingly only just getting around to writing a review now that I sit here hot-as-can-be in Texas wishing I was back there! A Seaside Adventure is primarily a guided kayak tour outfitter in Homer (we stumbled upon them in a TA forum about kayaking). However, when we got in touch with them we found out that they also have a few cabins which are available to stay in - I can't recommend them highly enough on both accounts! As you can see from our pictures, we had quite an incredible Alaskan experience with them. It felt like we were staying with friends because they were so hospitable and the trip was so tailored to our interests.

We left Homer in the afternoon on a small boat that shuttled us out to their cabins on Little Tutka Bay, which Richard arranged for us. Once we got our stuff settled in the cabin we threw on some rubber boots and headed out to hike around the island for a couple hours. We never saw another soul and just really enjoyed the big open sky and beautiful wildnerness. For dinner, we cooked something up in the kitchenette in the cabin with supplies we brought with us from Homer. The next day we went on a full-day kayak trip with Richard and Dorle. What an INCREDIBLE day! We saw lots of interesting wildlife but that isn't what made the day so special....the best parts were just being out on the open water and seeing the incredible landscape and learning a wealth of information from Richard. He has such respect for and knowledge of the unique environment he is living in and really helped us appreciate everything we were seeing at a new level. He and Dorle really went above and beyond - we hit it off so well that on our second night there they even took us with them on some on some of their personal "errands" like going to check their crab pot (which turned out to have a big octopus in it instead!).

Basic details on the cabins: The cabins are pretty basic but are very clean , have bedding and basic kitchen supplies and most importantly have amazing views of the ocean and a sunset that was mesmerizing. Bathrooms are outside, no running water, but they keep them smelling fine and they are only a quick walk outside the cabin door.

Staying here and doing our kayak trip with them ended up being one of the most memorable parts of our trip. If you want to really experience Alaska, get away from the tourists and hitch a ride out to the cabins of A Seaside Adventure.
