Very personal attention and nice people. Responded to texts immediately. Felt like an adopted family as we staged transition from the motor boat to kayaks in floating catamaran that doubled as a the guides home. Good equipment. Secure place to store personal belongings. We saw bald eagles, a minx, lots of starfish. Guide’s explanation of the 5 types of salmon was a riot. We recommend this company.

Despite being the only person booked for the 8am tour/outing, Devon and his crew accepted my booking and my keen interest in paddling in some of the waters in the Ketchikan area became a reality! From my initial contact with the company until our goodbye, I have nothing but huge accolades for the business and how they treat their customers. I learned a great deal about the history of the area, the land/air and sea life that lives there and saw such wonderful places and critters--truly a great experience!

This was a gorgeous trip- cheaper than the cruise companies, MUCH smaller groups, and a very competently-run outfit. Our only bit of caution: While the most arduous part of the excursion may be the stairs leading to the office, we were glad our elderly folks opted out of this trip. That said, I was concerned about my own abilities as a kayaker and had no problem. These are sit-in tandem kayaks with rudders. Matt, our guide, was helpful and clear and easygoing.

Devon and his crew did a great job for our group of 7. Very friendly staff, nice facilities, relaxing and educational kayak trip. Our guide, a retired veterinarian, was seasoned and experienced, and made for a fun outing. The snacks on the boat after our kayak ride hit the spot. We'd recommend this excursion without hesitation! Our group was a dad, with 3 of his adult children and their spouses.
