This was everything we were looking for in an excursion in Alaska. We saw whales really close to our boat, sea lions, eagles and sea otters. It was exceptional. The small size of the tour with 6 people made it highly personal and Sonny was a super guide. Great sense of humour, truly knowledgeable about the environment and personable.
Only one thing he was slightly misinformed about. As people from a cruise ship, he thought we needed to be fed every 22 minutes. We actually could go 26 minutes between feedings!
Thank you Sonny!

Fantastic experience. Our boat captain showed us bald eagles, sea lions, sea otters and whales galore. We lost count after the first 10. I highly recommend this personable, knowledgeable captain and this excursion.

Our Captain, Sonny, was excellent. He had a tour earlier in the day that tracked a pod of humpback whales. He said he wouldn't make any promises but led us directly to the location. Within minutes we were seeing a beautiful mommah and calf breaching. Excellent service!

While we never could find the whale in the bay, Sonny was very helpful in giving us an understanding of the wildlife in Sitka. We appreciated seeing the eagles and their nests, and the sea lions. The sea otter are a very lovely creature and were plentiful.

Our experience could not have been better! The excursion was exactly as represented - except better. Out boat captain went out of his way to ensure that we saw eagles and their nests, whales, sea lions and sea otters. Wonderful time, wonderful pictures.

One of our best excursion. Small boat with only 6 passengers. Sonny was a wonderful captain/guide. He is very knowledgeable, personable and fun. We saw more bald eagles in one place than I thought possible. Then we saw sea otters and of course whales. Wonderful experience.

My girlfriend and I were very pleased with this 6 passenger boat tour. We appreciated it being a small group. The boat operator, Sonny, did a great job: he did an efficient safety review when we boarded the boat, found us wild life, answered our questions, was friendly and professional. It was a worthwhile trip and I would solidly recommend the trip. Margaret

Amazing trip, the highlight of our vacation. We had a very friendly knowledgeable local skipper (Sonny) who knew all about the wildlife and how and where to spot them. We had an amazing time zipping across the bay in search of Whales, sea otters and we even got to see an eagles nest. Would highly recommend this tour and Sonny in particular. Only wish we could have spent longer in his company

Boat captain worked really hard to get us where we needed to be! Saw eagles with their best and 2 babies, sea lions, sea otters and of course a momma whale and her calf!

A small craft so was very personal. Our guide was outstanding: personable, professional and knowledgeable. Gave us an outstanding tour. Whales here seem to travel solo or in small pods so are more difficult to spot. However, we had several opportunities to get up close.

Loved the story of the garden. The upside down trees that are beautifully planted in the roots of the trees that were knocked down. The entire trip was educational and beautiful! The glacier was also beautiful and the walk to the base was lovely on a wonderful day!
