This was one of the highlights of our trip. We had booked the trip prior to our cruise and were excited to get out on the water. Davey met us in Sitka, and we headed out to sea, ultimately about 18 miles out to sea around the Saint Lazaria National Wildlife Refuge. this place is breathtaking. Abundant wildlife, pristine scenery. Whales, otter, seals, puffins, cormorants, eagles. Davey is extraordinarily knowledgeable about the region and it's character. He is the consummate professional; beginning with our initial phone call to setup the trip and throughout the entire adventure. His passion for the area and the wildlife shows through, both in his deep knowledge of the animals that w were seeing through to his conservation mindset which we truly appreciated. For those here that have complained about "shifting pricing" in other reviews, that is simply not true. Davey was clear from the beginning about what to expect. It is well worth the experience (and the cost) to spend an afternoon with Davey. I highly, highly recommend Davey to anyone wanting a top notch experience during your visit to Sitka.
