We cannot say enough wonderful things about Devon Cole and Ketchikan Kayak Excursions. We called him a few weeks before flying into Ketchikan. He knew that we were coming before the 1st of May and that we had limited time in the area. He kept in touch with us, and assured us that he would make himself available to rent us some kayaks the weekend that we arrived. He offered to watch the weather for us and picked a day for us that was absolutely gorgeous. He met us at the cove early Sunday morning, provided us with water-proof pants, pointed out all the great places around the area to see marine wildlife. Sure enough, we saw THREE humpback whales, one bull sea lion, and several seals and otters. Bald eagles flew above us. We were in Heaven. Devon Cole is also building some of the most awesome kayaks for use (hopefully) during the 2019 season and beyond. We sure hope to come back this way to vacation again. Thanks, Devon for your generosity, expertise and willingness to come out early on a Sunday to get us going! Hope you have a GREAT 2018 season! The Harvey Family from Charleston, South Carolina

My husband and I booked a kayak tour as a shore excursion for part of a planned cruise with extended family. Unfortunately we had to cancel the cruise at the last minute, though for a good reason--we found out that a long-awaited adoption was coming through, and we needed to go pick up the baby! We were already within the 60-day no cancellation period as stipulated in the company's policies, but they were very understanding and gave us a full refund. And Devon, if you're reading this, you've now made our short list of names :).

Devon was great to work with, very laid back but thorough in making sure we had everything we needed. The kayaks are in great shape and we had them out for six hours. It was a fantastic trip. I totally recommend Ketchikan Kayak Company.

Went kayaking with a group of friends and Devon was amazing to rent from! He was out of the office driving into town when we got there but another staff member called him and he turned right around to come back and assist us. Thanks Devon!
