Sitka's Secrets, owned by Kent, is an opportunity to try fishing for salmon and halibut. One customer caught out the limit of fish, and agreed that the company is a great experience.

Sitka Sound Tours is owned and operated by Captain Jim, a 30+ year Alaska resident.  He gives excellent small boat wildlife tours.  Being a long-time Sitka resident he knows the area well and offers great value.  He has a no deposit and no cancellation policy, so it is very customer-friendly in this regard.  

Ester G Sea Taxi owned and operated by Davey Lubin is another one of the fantastic water tours.  Davey keeps his boat clean and comfortable.  He is extremely knowledgeable about the Tongass National Forest and Sitka Sound.  Davey knows where to go for amazing wildlife viewing.  Do realize however, that unlike other boat tour operators, unless you book a private tour, a maximum personal weight of 225 pounds per seat is imposed.
