Thank you so much for a fabulous kayaking trip at Bear Glacier! Your hospitality and great trip planning made for a truly wonderful and memorable time. I especially enjoyed paddling thought the icebergs and wildlife.


Our week in Alaska was truly on the best of my life. Never before have I had the opportunity to see so much wildlife in its natural habitat. Kayaking through the ice fields, having lunch next to a calving glacier, seeing a 19 legged star fish - every experience was unique and unforgettable. Thank you so much.


I thought I'd write and let you know how much I enjoyed the Bear Glacier Sea Kayaking trip. I know Ann enjoyed it very much as well. The kayaking trip was a wonderful stress release and wonderful experience. It was made possible by your wonderful guide services! Thanks so much! I am recommend Bear Glacier to everyone I know.


Thank you for organizing such an amazing time. We really enjoyed the experience and loved being able to see the glaciers and wildlife from the seat of a kayak.

Thank you guiding us around Bear Glacier lagoon in July. We all felt it was among the most memorable - and certainly the most unique aspect of our visit to Alaska. I still clearly recall the sounds of the ice melting and bubbles popping when you led us kayaking. We appreciate all the work that you did to make our week in Alaska a memorable vacation.
