Great Trip to Blackstone Bay!

We had a great Blackstone Bay kayak tour! Pete was very helpful in planning and was able to connect us with another couple to meet the trip minimum of 4.They provided all the rain gear that you could possibly need (boots, jackets, pants). While it didn't rain as predicted, I was happy that we were prepared just in case. I had originally looked at booking one of the boat tours in the area and am so glad that we decided to kayak. The view of Blackstone Bay and the glacier was beautiful and it was incredible to hear the glacier calving. The views / wildlife seemed much more intimate and closer being in a kayak versus being in a boat. Lunch was a perfect break and we loved the hike at the end. I was a little worried that the day would be too long, but it went by so quickly and we really weren't very tired at the end. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip!"

Great Day on the Water

We set out on the Passage Canal trip with our guide Natalie. We were looking for a day trip that wasn't all day but would give us plenty of time and this excursion fit both requirements. The weather would eventually turn rainy, but we were expecting it and dressed appropriately. Instructions were thorough, and Natalie was very informative about the area and answered all of our questions. The lunch spread was more than expected, and delicious! It was my daughter's birthday and Natalie surprised her with a birthday cake with candles! The time on the water was fabulous. Water is such a unique color. Highly recommend this activity. Short and scenic drive from Anchorage."

A Highlight of our Alaskan Vacation

Everything about our experience was exceptional. Even though we contacted Pete late in the afternoon and requested a next morning trip, they happily accommodated us. Pete met us with a smile on July 29, 2017 under extremely windy conditions. Our tour guide, Ashley, was fantastic fitting us with all the proper gear and providing well-explained instructions. Although the conditions were not ideal, she made the trip extremely enjoyable. The spawning salmon was an incredible sight to behold! I highly recommend that everyone visiting Alaska book a trip with Alaska Sea Kayakers."

Amazing Day

We had the most amazing day in Alaska! My Sister's family, me and my Husband were welcomed with warm greetings & big smiles. Our tour guide Victoria got us all dressed in our kayaking outfits and on our way. We took a scenic boat ride to Blackstone Bay. Unloaded the Kayaks and were on our way after a quick safety briefing. I can't even explain how beautiful it was. Victoria took us to all the most scenic areas. We stopped for an almost "gourmet" lunch on a beach that we could watch a Glacier while we ate. Back in the Kayaks after lunch we paddled to a Glacier and watched it calving. A beautiful waterfall was coming off the Glacier. We paddled through an ice flow which was exciting!! Victoria our guide was wonderful and was always checking to make sure we were all doing good. This was truly a tour of a lifetime. Well done Victoria and Peter (the owner). Thank you for a truly unforgettable day!"

Blackstone day trip was a highlight of our Alaska trip

We recently did the Blackstone Bay kayak trip and it was worth every penny. The company and our guide were professional, experienced and enthusiastic. The equipment was very nice quality and the lunch they served mid-day was more than sufficient. This trip was customer-oriented and we felt they were dedicated to making sure we had a fun and safe experience. The scenery was spectacular. If you are looking for an active day trip with a wow factor, this is it."

Excellent day of Kayaking Fun

We drove to Whittier after reading about it I the travel guide. What a great stop. The Alaska sea kayak company was safety conscience and able to accommodate every level of experience in our group. We did a three hour tour with Jonathan who was as informative as he was patient. We saw eagles and a rookery and some beautiful waterfalls. It was a wonderful day and wonderful experience. Whittier too was a town that was so interesting and beautiful. So worth it and highly recommend it."

Wonderful Day on the Water

Alaska Sea Kayakers were amazingly accommodating with our group of 7, they even allowed a last minute addition of two people to our reservation when their flight got canceled. Our guide, Victoria, was delightful, the gear was all in great condition, the lunch was truly delicious, and the scenery could not have been more beautiful. Highly recommend this day trip! "

Blackstone bay tour = perfect day

The owner of Alaska Sea Kayak and our guide were very friendly. After a boat tour of approx. 30 minutes which took us to the departure point in Blackstone Bay, we got a brief introduction on kayaking. We then started to paddle towards the first glacier. The landscape was amazing and we were lucky with the sunny weather. We had lunch on a little creek (everything was organized by our guide). In the afternoon we paddle again to see the other glaciers. We ended the day with a small hike to touch one of the glacier while waiting for the taxi boat. Highly recommended! "

Alaska Highlight.

Our family of five, two out of shape parents and three teenage boys, took the full-day Blackstone Bay trip in early June 2014 and cannot recommend it highly enough. Every one of us rated it far and away the highlight of our two-week visit to Alaska. Pete runs a wonderfully friendly and welcoming, but highly professional enterprise. Every aspect was well-prepared and executed, from the highly-trained staff to the safety demonstration, gear preparation, boat excursion, and the outstanding picnic lunch on a beach. We always felt safe and in capable hands, and because of that we could relax and enjoy the wonder of our surroundings. I kayaked with my especially hard-to-impress 13 yr. old, who repeatedly said things like, “OK, this is pretty amazing.” Calving glaciers, waterfalls, astonishingly large roosts of birds on cliffs, touching ancient glacier ice in the water and on the beach, otters, nearly total seclusion, clean and crisp air and water. No shortage of wonders. Made our trip! "

Kayaking an Ice Field on Blackstone Bay--Priceless!

It was about a 45 minute boat ride to our drop off. During our trip, we saw 4 different glaciers and got as close as was safely allowed. We did a shore lunch that included hot drinks, smoked salmon, pasta salads and all kinds of treats. The trip through the ice field was awesome--just the sound of paddles hitting the water and the calfing of the glaciers--surreal."

Must do in Whitter!

Where do I begin?!?! If you are in the Whitter or Anchorage area, do not miss this opportunity to get up close to the glaciers by sea. We opted to do the full day excursion that explores the many glaciers in Blackstone Bay. Peter, the owner of Alaska Sea Kayakers, was very helpful in getting a group together and having all the gear you will need. Our full day tour was at the end of June and despite the cloudy skies, it was still an AWESOME trip."

A fantastic tour - worth every cent.”

The glaciers and waterfalls were massive. Lots of ice chunks floating along in the water, and we even saw a seal. The hike up to an ice cave on the last glacier (land-locked) was fun as well. Peter Denmark helpfully and patiently answered my multitude of questions beforehand. It's not a cheap or quick tour, but it is a great experience - worth every cent."

Beautiful way to see Prince William Sound”

We had our guide, Jen (who was great) all to ourselves for the day, which was great for setting our own pace and having a flexible schedule. She was very skilled in getting us comfortable with the kayak -- a first-time experience for us both -- and had great knowledge about the area, local plant life, etc. that made talking with her a plus for the outing (and, she was also great about just letting us all enjoy the soft quiet natural music of the water, breeze, and birds). The occasional stops for short hikes: up to a waterfall on one, and - for others - some scenic promontories that included easy access to picking fresh blueberries & salmonberries. The scenery is breathtaking in size & beauty, and the closeness to the water with the quiet of kayak cruising was a wonderful way to see/experience it all."
