Molly was the perfect guide for our 3-hour tour of 10 people from Deer Harbor. We saw harbor seals, kingfisher birds, and learned about the surrounding islands. It was a very safe and relaxing kayaking tour.

I would gladly take another... More

we took a 3 hour sea kayaking trip from 5-8 pm. The guide was fanatastic--very professional and personable. He took us out far enough to see plenty of sea wildlife and have a great experience but we always felt very safe. I would recommend this to anyone!

We took a 3 hour tour around Deer Harbor with Annika as our guide. I had never kayaked before so I was a bit nervous, but she quickly put me at ease. After some quick safety information we were off. As we paddled around she pointed out and talked about wildlife, told us about the islands, and provided pleasant chit... More

Zach, our kayak leader was very informative both about kayaking and about the area. The 3 hour trip began and ended on time. The route was very scenic. Would definitely recommend this trip.
