I first must say that making reservations for our kayaking trip was very easy and hassle free. When inputting information I inadvertently sent two reservations and was immediately contacted to make sure that this was indeed a mistake. Have not come across too many companies that take this initiative. A representative was waiting for us at the dock and immediately... More

Met me at the Dock off the ship. Excellent pre-kayak introduction. Guide was knowledgable and clearly knew and loved the area. It was a beautiful day in Sitka Sound and we were lucky enough to see a humped back whale, eagle and sea lion. Loved the experience!

Mom and I took the 2.5 hour tour of the islands and harbor. We saw many types of marine animals and birds. Even though it was raining we had a great time. Our guide was great and the rest of the staff were super helpful. Thanks!

We were lucky to have a sunny, calm day out on the water. The staff was very professional and the guide took us around the islands in the sound looking for wildlife and pointing out eagles, deer, and sea otters. The equipment was all top notch. At the end we had a lovely light lunch provided and a boat ride... More

We decided at the last minute to try a guided kayak adventure. Everyone was so nice, the equipment was good and the kayaking was wonderful. We saw some wildlife in and out of the water. Our guide was sweet and wonderful. They gave us a big delicious homemade cookie to eat while out kayaking.

We took the Sitka Island Paddle and Lost Fort Trek. Caylen was our guide, and walked us through the kayak use & safety before we got near the water. The actual paddle to the island was just right for inexperienced kayakers, and we got to spend time on an island where we explored some WWII-era bunkers. Caylen's narrative of the... More

This was a great trip! First of all, we had the most perfect weather you could ask for in the beautiful town I Sitka. The gang at SSOA was helpful and best of all- Laid back😎. I would definitely recommend this adventure (and do it again).

We arrived in Sitka on a perfect day to explore on the water. Our tour guide was amazingly upbeat and encouraging. After we got geared up and learned about the safety tips we were out on the water. Within seconds we saw sea otters, salmon, crab and a bald eagle. Our path took us through major ports and quite outlets... More

We did an all day guided kayaking trip and it was awesome. We are fairly experiences kayakers, but the trip would be good for people at any level. They did a great job in outfitting us to stay warm and dry despite hazy/drizzly weather. Our guide took us at a comfortable pace and showed us beautiful scenery around the local... More
