Scott Roberge knows whales, and he knows where to find them. He gave us a terrific, lively, and fun-filled day of whale- dolphin - and eagle-watching, with a sunny (!) beach thrown in. Highly recommended.

Scott provided the perfect trips. One day with a five year old to see the glacier and the next trip without the little one to whale watch. Outstanding adventures with a top notch personal guide. Will return for more tours with Scott.

Everything about the tour was top notch! Scott was very friendly and knowledgeable, and thoroughly educated us on the area, town, and wildlife. Saw all kinds of wildlife and boating/kayaking around the ice chunks was surreal. Could not recommend going with Tongass Kayak Adventures more!
