We had SO much fun and Sonny was an excellent tour guide! we saw so much wildlife from a first-year eagle nest with a 3 month old in it to otters, sea lions, sea birds and of course, whales. It was an amazing experience all around and my mom and sister who were here visiting Sitka for the first time said the trip exceeded their expectations. Would recommend this tour to all my friends and family, I actually have two friends that booked as well and are headed out this Thursday :)
We had a great tour guide today! Maria was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, funny and interesting. We saw Eagles, bears, salmon spawning, small sea life and lots of plant life. The tour was 2 hours long and well worth the money. We have been on this cruise for 7 days and this was one of the most enjoyable tours we have been on.
We were a group of 4 on a small boat captained by Sonny, a wonderful and friendly man who knew the waters like the back of his hand. He found whales and more whales. We got really close to the whales, took great pictures, and also scoured the shores for bald – eagles, with success! Sonny shared great stories about his heritage, his family and Alaska. He was an instant friend. Thank you Sitka and thank you Sonny!
Bought last minute tickets in front of the Visitors Center. Took this wonderful Land Tour with Robin. She was a really great local (17 yr) resident guide and made our experience “up close and personal”. Robin followed the itinerary but also gave us extra experiences of what it is like to live there. Would have loved to hire Robin for a private hiking guide! She was super informative and was always stopping along the way to make sure we saw the amazing wildlife. We were dropped off in town and had 2hr to explore landmarks/shops before ship time. Wish we had more time. Even though it was raining – Beautiful Sitka was a favorite of ours!
Thanks to reviews on Trip Advisor I picked Sitka Wildlife Tours for our day in Sitka, we were on a cruise. There were 5 of us, and Maria was our guide. There was another family in the van with us, which seats 10 and was brand new! Haha Anyway, Maria is born and raised in Sitka, and she is VERY knowledgeable about any aspect of Sitka you could think of. I HIGHLY recommend this tour (city and wildlife) and if you can get Maria, you won’t regret it.Our favorite tour on our cruise!
