Sitka Sea Otter and Wildlife Quest Excursion Reviews

This wildlife tour is a great way to take in Alaska's varied flora and fauna from the comfort of a guided boat.

This was a very nice boat ride in the bay. We saw whales, a grizzly bear in a meadow, and many sea otters. Bald eagles were everywhere. This excursion also went to the bear and raptors sanctuaries.
This was well worth the dollars spent.

One of our best tours ever. This tour company [Allen Marine] has tours in several cities that we have been on and they never disappoint. On this adventure we saw lots of wildlife including Sea Otters, Bald Eagles, and Humpback Whales. There was plenty of fine scenery and very cool but sunshiny weather. NO rain! The boat we went on met us at the ship, not on the dock. It was large, dry, and warm if you stayed on the lower deck. For the adventurous type, there was an upper deck that got you closer to nature as well as giving you a red nose! On board was a marine biologist/historian. There were also binoculars to use. Also there is a snack bar and two restrooms.

Excellent - comfortable catamaran, good binoculars provided, calm water allowed us to go further than usual and saw more - including a huge raft of otter, a pair of orca, and many, many variety of birds.

The viewing opportunities for the disabled is non existence for the boat portion of this excursion. Even though Allen Marine posts on their brochures that standing is not recommended, they don't enforce it. This particular day, the seas were rough and husband could not stand, so he spent the whole boat tour seeing only people which to me had no value and was an expensive boat ride. The fortress of the bear, saved this tour somewhat, but I felt that more than a half an hour should have been allowed for this portion of the tour.
