Mako's is super convenient, flexible & helpful. We had a large group heading across Katchemak for a long weekend. We had lots of gear, lots of questions and lots of mind-changing. They accommodated & helped out well.

We had a great ride to the glacier trail. I had been a little apprehensive but they made me feel very safe. On the way home we got to stop by gull island and see puffins and otters. I highly recommend this trip.
