Inspite of the rainy day the guide took us around the area and tried his best to find something to see. It was a good exercise workout at least and we had some good laughs.

We overall enjoyed this tour. The gear shed was a bit dingy, but the staff setting us up was very friendly. We were able to leave our camera bag there, as we didn’t want to risk it getting wet. There was not really any instruction at the beginning, which was fine for me as I had kayaking experience, but my husband really struggled at the beginning. They eventually realized he was having trouble and were then attentive. Our two guides were very nice and able to answer lots of questions about the area and growing up in Alaska. They didn’t really have a set plan of where we would be going, but that was fine with us. I guess we had a pretty fast paddling group since they were trying to decide on other places to bring us since we had additional time. We appreciated them extending our time in the water rather than just wrapping up early. We took a break at the halfway point and were given a snack of water, chips, a granola bar, and fruit snacks. So we really didn’t need to carry anything other than bug spray. Do not forget the bug spray as there are lots of small bugs on the water. We only saw 1 dolphin in the water but LOTS of bald eagles.

We were expecting to go into a more remote area. However you travel down a large river and then kayak through the harbor. No wildlife as you are in view of the town the entire time! The guide was not good, only talked with a few people. Would definitely not waste money on this one.

Right before our tour left, a hump back whale came up right by the dock. Unfortunately we didn't see any from our kayaks. It was a little windy for some of the less experienced kayakers. One of the couples tipped over.

Loved the kayaking! We saw many bald eagles and even a sea otter. Really fun, not too hard.

It was a great way to see whales and all the wildlife and get in some exercise to burn off some of the deserts.
