What an amazing outing we had with Paul! He is passionate about the wildlife and the beautiful area, and he clearly loves sharing it with others. We saw probably ten humpback whales, adorable sea otters, seals, sea lions, puffins, red billed oystercatchers, starfish in all...More

We booked a tour with Paul Davis of Gallant Adventures for our first port of call (Sitka) in Alaska during a cruise. In hindsight, this was both the best and worst idea we had. On the plus side, the tour itself was absolutely amazing. We...More

Highly recommend Paul’s tour. Small group boat and very knowledgeable captain. If you want to get away from the crowds and get close to the highlights on land and sea - book this tour! Saw whales, sea otters, harbor seals, and puffins. Thank you, Paul!

Sitka is easily my favorite Alaska town - small enough to be free of the hustle/bustle of city living, yet with most of the modern conveniences. There is also a lot to do in and around Sitka - but at the top of my list...More
