Our previously scheduled kayak trip cancelled on us at he pier! Sitka Sound was right there and signed us up immediately, at a lower price! We were able to go out and enjoy a great time on the sound with our knowledgeable guide, Chris. The homemade cookies were an added bonus.

My boyfriend and I went out for a half day of sea kayaking with Mitch, a guide for SSOA. We had not been on the water more than 15 minutes when Mitch spotted humpback whales blowing in the distance. We headed for them. Eventually we came within 40 feet of a surfacing whale. The flip of his tail off the... More

We booked via the internet and were quickly notified of our confirmation shortly thereafter.

We saw otters, sea lions, a harbor seal and many bald eagles. Maggie was a pleasure to have leading us. She was knowledgeable and put everyone at... More

We went out on a expedition for a couple of hours trying to see whales. We were able to spot 6 whsles around our boat and listen to their sounds. It was one of our best experiences. It will tske a couple of hours but totally worth it.

We came into Sitka looking for a water taxi to and from Silver Bay. Allison and John and the rest of the staff were so helpful and kind. We got to the big blue bus and they let us leave our big heavy packs while we walked around Sitka before getting on the water taxi. They let us borrow bear... More

Two senior first time kayakers here had a wonderful time. Greta our guide put us immediately at ease. The staff was welcoming and patient as we geared up into our vests, etc. We were provided safety instructions and away we went.
