5 star ratingFantastic beginning kayaker experience Charlie did a great job leading our small inexperienced group on the Rockwell lighthouse kayak tour. Calibrated the pace perfectly, knew to stop when sea lions playfully approached, got us back to the launch site right on time. A scenic and fun experience.

5 star ratingAll Around amazing experience Our 9 year old son is a huge history buff, so this paddle and WW2 bunker exploration trip was what he was most looking forward to on our recent Alaska adventure. This excursion was all we could have hoped for- and more! From start to finish, Charlie was terrific to work with.
