Our Story

Ketchikan's local, family owned kayaking company. Greg Thomas started Southeast Sea Kayaks over 20 years ago with a van and a couple of kayaks. We are a little bigger these days, but not too much bigger. Greg has stayed true to his independent spirit, so you won't find our tours sold aboard any cruise ships and we still just take six people per trip.

What Our Guests Say

Fred, Nicky, Ken and Margo Silverman say of Orcas Cove...

“We were thrilled to kayak with you. The weather was spectacular, as was Orcas Cove and its picture postcard islands. Its bald eagles chattered and soared as if on cue, and the remarkable sea life near shore was breathtaking. The outing on the water was simply great and made better yet because of your obvious and unvarnished friendliness from moment one on… Our day with you in Ketchikan, perhaps just another tourist outing for you guys, was a monumental day for us. A day full of your kindness and Alaska's grandeur. It is fair to say that it will not be forgotten.Thank you all so much!” Fred, Nicky, Ken and Margo Silverman

Ketchikan Borough Mayor, Dave Kiffer on Ketchikan Kayaking...

 “Your tour presents the natural beauty of our community very well. We who live here tend to forget how spectacular Ketchikan’s natural setting is and viewing it via kayak also allows us to "slow down" and savor it.”
