"Our family of four had a beautiful 1/2 day guided kayak tour around Peterson Bay in late July. We booked at the last minute, but Alan was very accommodating. Our guide was very professional, knowledgeable and put safety first. We saw sea birds, sea otters, bald eagles, harbor porpoises and at the very end, a black bear with three cubs--amazing! Being in the kayaks gave us a unique vantage point to observe the bears scraping and eating mussels from the rocks on shore while we floated a short distance out in the bay. Super experience!"Jenny G
"Our entire family had an amazing time on this trip. We saw harbor seals, sea otters, and numerous types of sea birds. We also got to tidepool at our lunch stop and saw 4 species of sea stars, beautiful anemones, crabs, and other sea life. It was raining and it was still a great day. Vienney was a wonderful guide."Mary Helen
"Absolutely personalized and perfect trip for my wife and I. Tour guide Vianny was incredible! Seals and pups, octopus, otters, starfish of all kinds, lunch on a beach. Wonderful full-day trip worth double the admission price."Eric Christopher
"We did the 1/2 day trip. The couple running the operation, and our tour guide (Tom) were all great. Tom gave a very good summary of how to operate a kayak and safely instructions. The kayaking was around Peterson Bay. We saw eagles and otters. A great trip for beginners. We’re experienced kayakers, and for us, this trip wasn’t that interesting and a very slow pace. Would only recommend for beginners otherwise you may be disappointed like we were."Lou Lisa
