This wildlife tour was the highlight of our Alaskan cruise. I highly recommend booking with Captain Paul Davis at Gallant Adventures! We saw whales, sea lions, otters, jelly fish and more. Paul is the best! Thank you for everything. He is great at communication prior to the excursion and on time.

Captain Paul Davis was fantastic. Paul provided us with a lot of info and that was way before our trip. This experience was beyond what we expected.

What fun! We booked the trip very early because we wanted to see puffins. Captain Paul would touch base during the winter, letting us know what to expect. He was right there to meet my sister and I at the dock and we were off in his boat! First we saw eagles...huge eagles! Then we quietly approached a beach where... More

We booked our trip with Paul almost a year ago, and Paul kept in touch the entire time leading up to our trip. He met us at the shuttle right where he said he would and led us down to the boat we would be touring on. It was me & my friend and one other couple that we made... More

Paul was fantastic in his detailed responses to our initial inquiries, and the confidence this gave us was validated during the incredible 2.5 hours we spent with him. Travelling with me were my husband and our 2 children (3 & 6), plus an older couple, who also seemed to enjoy the tour very much. Paul's expert knowledge of hotspots for... More

We found this company on TripAdvisor and thought it sounded great so we booked it (we were on a Holland-America cruise). It was fantastic! Paul was great to work with---kept in contact with us to make sure everything was still on and where to meet him. There were 3 couples plus Paul on the boat. The weather was not great---drizzling...

I booked this tour based on reviews. From the initial contact regarding the tour I was impressed with Paul's level of information and professional service. We were on a cruise and while the cruise tours were very good it was really great to go on a small tour. Paul was very knowledgeable and provided lots of information about the area... More

I dreaded writing this review because there is no way to find the words to explain how amazing it was. Unfortunately, due to family health issues it has taken me a couple of months to write this. I found Paul Davis and Gallant Adventures right here on Trip Advisor. It might very well be my best find ever! Our day... More

Took Paul's 2 hour wildlife tour last week during our Alaskan cruise. The weather was wonderful and the scenery was awesome. We had up-close encounters with many whales, sea otters, sea lions, seals and different types of birds during our trip. Paul's boat was the perfect size for our group of five, even my wife with her broken feet was... More

Paul is a wonderful charter captain and with his small boat, you will be able to get closer to the local wildlife and scenic areas compared to the larger outfits. You owe it to yourself to do this tour should you find yourself in beautiful Sitka - it was the absolute highlight of my trip!
