Sitka Marine Adventure
Your boat for this amazing tour is a safe, Coast Guard inspected 26-foot Glacier Bay Catamaran. This twin engine vessel was constructed specifically for a smooth ride in most any seas getting you to the action fast! She has a warm, comfortable cabin with large windows to maximize wildlife viewing from indoors, as well as a spacious deck for the open-air experience.
The captain of this vessel is a USCG licensed licensed captain with many years of experience studying the habits of the amazing animals in our area, giving each guest a once in a lifetime marine adventure. He also has a underwater hydrophone on board so you can hear the whales sing!
This two-hour tour will take a maximum of six guests at a time to some of the most breath taking scenery and animal habitat in the world. Weather and sea conditions that day will determine the itinerary for that day. Certainly the main focus will be on whales, but the captain will also try to tweak the tour based on your personal preferences and what you want to see most. Whether it is whales feasting on herring, otters lounging in the kelp, barking sea lions, or possibly even a bear on the beach, this is the tour for you!
Please note: A minimum of 2 guests are required to book this tour. The maximum is 6 guests per departure so book early to avoid disappointment. .

This excursion was my favorite of all the excursions we took. It was a rainy day and there were four of us in our group. Another couple had cancelled because of the rain so it was just the four of us and Sonny, our guide. He made our day so great! He's knowledgeable and sincerely happy to take people out on the water. We did see a few whales, an eagles nest that he discovered and shared with us and plenty of sea lions. The rain didn't slow us down one bit! He also recommended going to a little shack down the road for some clam chowder. It was really good. The service there was underwhelming but I guess since the chowder is good she can be that way. When in Sitka take this excursion! You will hopefully come home with great memories, too.
Our captain, Sonny, was phenomenal! We saw so many whales, and they bubble-fed right at the back of our boat. Sonny was very knowledgeable, and a great host and captain.
