Chris, from AZ, was a wonderful and patient guide. We not only su successfully learned how to operate a two person kayak with supervision, we had such a blast doing it with great company that we wouldd do it again. Keep up the good work!

We decided to do the kayak adventure last minute. Chris made the trip really great, he was informative and loves what he does! All of the employees make you feel safe and welcome. Wish I would've booked the fort excursion!! Next time for sure.

I highly recommend going on a kayak tour in Sitka and going with this guide company. Connor is an excellent guide - very knowledgeable on the area, marine life, and forests. We saw dozens of bald eagles, a seal, and an otter. Food was provided and awesome - cookies from grandma and salmon biscuit from mom. I went alone (rest... More

What a pleasant way to spend 2.5 hours in this lovely place. Maggie's watchful eye and wealth of knowledge added to the adventure. She is great at sharing interesting facts about the Eagles, kelp and other wildlife. We found this relaxing, fun, and informative. As other reviews mention, the homemade cookies are a special treat. I'm so glad we got... More

Couldn't have asked for a more perfect day to kayak in a breathtaking environment. No wind, no choppy waves, and plenty of sunshine. And Mitch was the best guide to take us through Sitka Sound area! They were very attentive to our safety, comfort and schedule. Highly recommend booking your excursion through Sitka Sound Ocean Adventures!

We had 6 people renting kayaks for 4 days for a self-guided trip, and got a water-taxi drop-off as well. All of the folks at Sitka Sound Ocean Adventures went out of their way to make sure that things worked out smoothly for our trip, from all of the pre-trip questions to the final paperwork. We have already recommended SSOA... More

Sitka is a great place for kayaking with the breathtaking views, islands and varied wildlife. We saw sea lions bathing on a channel marker, Eagles, sea otters, and deer grazing in a pasture. The untouched beauty of Sitka is breathtaking. As an experienced paddler, the guides Connor and Maggie were amazing. They knew all the right places to go considering... More

We took a taxi with John from Sitka to Goddard hot springs, and it was a fantastic experience. Not only was John friendly (and Willow, his dog, was awesome to have on deck too!), but he was very knowledgable about the surrounding area's history and natural wonders. The ride was comfortable and interesting, and on the way back he took... More

I was doing some solo touring and I had a wonderful time with my kayak guide, Chris, and the other kayakers. Not too strenuous an activity, beautiful views of the scenery and up-close views of sea life. Lots of bald eagles, sea stars, and a sea lion swam by. Chris was able to answer our questions about the nature we... More
