Vivian, a native Tlingit, began our tour with a greeting in her native tongue that brought me to tears! She was an AMAZING guide, sharing so much knowledge of the Sitka, the bears, totem poles, and all the beautiful nature that surrounded us.

Spent a most enjoyable time out on the water with Captain Sonny. Very informative....and just plain fun. We saw whales, sea otters and sea lions. From drop-off to the trip itself, we were warmly greeted and cared for. Top notch trip!
