Captain Ryan is personable, funny, knowledgeable and experienced. You cannot go wrong with a AAA tour! Ryan does his homework to provide everyone with the best possible experience. He is very safety conscience and takes very good care of all if his guests. Be sure to ask for the joke book if by some rare chance there is a lull... More

Ryan is a wonderful captain! With over 13 years of personal experiences in Sitka, he's extremely knowledgeable about the area. Kept our boat laughing the entire time and learned so much about SE AK. Not to mention, he found us whales, seals, otters and their pups, and got us super close to take pictures!!!

We had a wonderful wildlife viewing trip during the herring spawning season in April. Captain Ryan is knowledgable, friendly, and great with the 8 year old we had aboard! The hot tea and snacks were a welcome addition on a cold spring day.

We can't say enough great things about Ryan and our whale watching tour with him. We couldn't have asked for a better captain. He was so friendly and really immediately felt like an old friend. Our only request was to see whales and that we did...but on top of that, he took us down an inlet that was so beautiful... More

We had the most wonderful adventure with Captain Ryan. My children, sister, cousin and I wanted to see whales, sea otters and bald eagles. We saw them all and them some. To be able to sit in the water with no engines running and listen to the whales breathe was an experience of a lifetime. We saw so many whales... More

Ryan is very nice and friendly! He took us all over the sound explaining the local landscape and helping us find wildlife. We saw otters, sea lions, different birds and tons of whales! Highly recommended!

Our cruise vacation to Alaska was spectacular due to the unforgettable excursion in Sitka with Captain Ryan. On July 4th Captain Ryan took our family, 3 of us, on a private excursion on his boat. He exceeded all of our expectations with an unbelievable wildlife water tour that included starfish, jelly fish, salmon spawning, sea otters, bald eagles, brown bears,... More

Ryan provides a great water taxi service. His boat is clean and comfortable and he is friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. I would recommend Alaska Aquatic Adventures to anyone needing a water taxi service for long hike or for a marine tour.
