We went kayaking saw a mink on the bank and lots of starfish of varying colors. It was so peaceful and fun. I would do this again. The only down is you are in a group and have to stay with the group instead of just kind of doing your own thing so you are limited. The tour guides were great though and educational and keep safety in the forefront. Read Less

Wanted to do something on the water, we really aren't that much of outdoor folks, so choose this for something different. It was awesome, but be prepared to do a lot of paddling. We probably covered 3+ miles in our 2 hours, started off in the harbor, Creek Street, then across the Tongass Narrows and halfway around the island before returning. Didn't see much marine life, but saw Eagles over by the island and just enjoyed being outdoors and being active. Thought we might be sore the next day, but this out of shape couple didn't even need a massage, LOL. Engaging guides, small group, only 8 of us in four kayaks plus the two guides in their individual kayaks. This tour will not disappoint, but unless you bring a Go-Pro type camera, don't expect to take many pictures. Read Less

As it was a short day, we elected to do just one tour and chose sea-kayaking for our tour. Drive to the location was not too long, the guide was knowledgeable and informative. It was not too vigourous for us to handle, we are 60 and 65. Even though it was raining, we were not cold, but we did get a bit wet. Had time to return to the dock area and walk to the shopping district for a bit of exploring. Read Less

This was 15 miles outside of town and included a very fast Rib boat to get out to a secluded island, not for the faint hearted! The Kayaking itself was stunning and the guide very knowledgable.

Tatoosh Island kayaking. Well organized. Beautiful scenery. This kayak trip can be done by anyone. No experience necessary as the waters are calm and all equipment provided. The guides are knowledgeable and great at explaining the plants and wildlife. It is a serene experience, to be away from the city and out in the islands with the quiet. Just the birds and the wildlife. This part of Alaska is a rain forest. Amazing greenery! Read Less
