Would Do this Again!
At the last minute, my friend and I changed our excursion from bear watching to kayaking. Neither one of us had ever done it so thought it would be a fun first-time adventure. It was!! We really enjoyed it and enjoyed the young man from Texas (lived with his uncle Pete!) that was our guide. He gave a lot of great history and was just a great guide. Would definitely do this again!

Very educational!
Very knowledgeable and informative. Took care of our group of twelve very efficiently. The only downside was it was hard to hear his commentary in the back of the van. A speaker system would have been nice.

Great service and lots of fun
We had a great trip with Dominic! He notified us a couple of days before that there was no wind and what would we like to do. We chose to kayak for 3 hours then did a tour of Ketchikan to learn its history. Dominic was great! He even took my hubby to some fishing spots so he could fly fish for the day while we did our excursion. You can't get that kind of service everyday. Aug 7th Sunny skies for our entire cruise :) We hope to come back very soon!!!

Do NOT use this company!
We had confirmed pre-paid reservations for this tour. Tonight I opened the electronic ticket and clicked on the link to double check where we were supposed to meet (at 0730) tomorrow morning when getting off the ship. To my shock, the link said no longer valid, tour canceled. Just yesterday the link was fine and still confirmed. No notice to us from the tour operator (Dominic Farley)! Nothing! We tried calling (left a message), sending a message via booking link...no response! Too late to schedule any other activity. Ruined our day in Ketchikan. Now I see the same feedback from others over the past few weeks (he offers multiple different tours). None of those negative reviews were showing when we booked. Beware. If a tour operator needs to emergently cancel an activity, the responsible thing is to notify the people scheduled for the tour. Now we are waiting to see if our money will be refunded. Very disappointing.

Great experience for the whole family!
We had such a great time on our wildlife tour in Ketchikan. Dominic our guide was so knowledgeable about the area and the animals. He took us through the town and told us fun facts and information and then we headed out towards the wilderness. We were fortunate to see sea stars, deer, seals, so many bald eagles, and 4 bears including a mamma and her cub. It was an amazing experience. He also took us to an amazing waterfall which was breath taking. My kids, my mother and my husband and I all loved our time in Ketchikan thanks to our great tour. My kids are still saying, " if you see a bear yell 'bear, bear, bear and Dominic will come save you!"

Trip cancelled one day prior! We booked the private van for 14 passengers weeks in advance. I then communicated with them via text message to confirm. All was set. One day prior to arrival we received an email from Viator that the tour operator cancelled. I texted them directly to see what happened and to see if there was anything that we could do to make something work since this was our entire groups plan for the half day we had available in Ketchikan. No reply. Thank you for absolutely nothing! Avoid this "Tour Operator" at ALL COST.

Trip Cancelled
Our kayak trip was cancelled without our knowledge. We WERE sent an email two days prior to cancellation. The problem is, however, is that when you are on a cruise, there is not always access to internet (and we did not have internet access). And they knew we were on a cruise. We never received a phone call or even a voicemail. When we got off the boat, we waited and waited for our excursion. I even called Dominic two hours before our excursion was supposed to start, to just get a meeting place lined out, and no one answered. I did leave a voicemail, but never got a return call. At the time of the excursion, when they were nowhere around, I called again two different times. These phone calls were now sent straight to voicemail. A phone call back would have been nice. A text message the day of the cancellation would have been nice. Anything besides an email, when someone may not have internet access, would have been nice. We were greatly disappointed.

Welcome to Alaska
During our port visit to Ketchikan onboard the Royal Princess cruise ship 5/13/2019 my wife and I had the pleasure of having Dominic as our guide. Communication was excellent as he arranged to meet us outside Arctic Bar at Berth 2. We found him very friendly & courteous as we began our tour of the city, while he explained it's history and culture. We took a walk through a park near the salmon hatchery, saw some interesting totem poles, and then we ventured out in search of wildlife. Along the way we stopped at a beach that showed the inlet as he explained about the lands on the other side of the channel and how the school system in Alaska incorporates survival skills as part of their curriculum. We saw some otters, eagles and stopped by a nice waterfall during our tour. I would definitely recommend a good pair of sneakers or light boots (no sandals or flip-flops). He took us to several spots attempting to observe black bear activity and although they were elusive I was not disappointed at all with the chance to connect with Alaska nature and breathe it all in...we even bought some Salmon Berry jam to bring home with us along the way. I would highly recommend - Scott & Dana - Jacksonville, FL
