    Captain Sonny knew just where to go to show us eagles, otters, and lots and lots of whales. He also knows the history of the area well. It was a fun and interesting tour with many amazing photo opportunities. Loved every minute! Thank you Sitka Wildlife Tours.

    This was the best experience we had in Alaska. Sonny, our captain was knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. We saw bald eagles, sea lions, sea otters, a gray whale and a humpback. Glorious. Sign up early, it’s a great adventure.
