My family and I traveled to Alaska and of course wanted to see Prince William Sound, Glaciers, wildlife you know basically everything. I was disappointed when I learned most "cruise boats" don't go out in March. I found Lazy Otter and was super excited to go on this adventure with my family. I was also very happy this vessel was...

Thank you so much for a wonderful experience. There is so much to do in Alaska, and this is one we strongly recommend. We had a group of 8 including a 5 year old and a 17 year old. Needless to say; its difficult to make everyone happy, but this answered that tall order. People can be very difficult to... More

We went for the coffee and breakfast, which was good. We had the salmon bagel, lots of cream cheese and salmon on warm bagel. Great coffee and you can even purchase cool mugs, which I did. Lots of excitement watching them get ready to send off the tours. We were there early, and it was quite a happening place. Made... More

I was in Alaska on business for a bout a week. I work and live at a major ski resort in the Colorado high country. One of the group activities we decided to do was a glacier tour of Prince William Sound with Lazy Otter Charters. During the week I spent in Alaska, this was certainly a highlight. Our Captain...

Kelly, her husband and their team - extremely helpful and going extra miles in getting great experiences organized - I was lucky to get with their help to a Prince William Sound sea kayaking & camping trip with "Wilderness Alaska" as well as a half-day horseback tour with "Alaska Horse Adventures". Thank you so much, beyond expectations!

It was a treat to go into Prince William Sound with only 8 people on the boat. The smaller vessel allowed us to get up close and personal with the glaciers. Captain Ben seemed to know exactly where to take us for the best experiences.

My husband and I went on an all day charter with Lazy Otter tours a few days ago and we enjoyed it very much. Captain Ben did a very good job taking us to the seal lion haul out, salmon hatchery and a number of glaciers. Lunch was provided, sandwiches, chips, apples, trail mix and the best home made cookies... More

We loved riding along with Captain Tom and Keri! They were funny and knowledgeable about Alaskan wildlife and the surrounding areas. We witnessed a pod of Orcas, lots of sea otters, bald eagles and sea lions. The weather was sunny with clear skies...luck was on our side! I highly recommend this 4hour trip for everyone. I didn't even get motion-sickness!... More

We spent a wonderful five hours on the Explorer with Captain Mike. We learned so much about Prince William Sound and the changes that are taking place there. We were able to get very close to glaciers and even landed on a beach which we were able to explore briefly. Lunch was great, especially the cream cheese/smoked salmon spread and... More

We booked a private day tour on Aug 18th 2016. Captain Tom was the chosen one to put up with the 4 of us for the day. But he was up for the challenge. He was very professional and extremely knowledgeable about the alsakan waters. He showed us everything we wanted to see except for a whale. We searched and... More
