SEAK Adventure & Charlie Jordan

Welcome to SEAK Adventure in Sitka, Alaska! Situated in the heart of the Tongass National Forest, Sitka is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. Often shrouded in mist in the early morning, Sitka Sound has an eerie beauty with rocky, forested islets that are dotted off the coast forming jagged shapes in the gray. When the mist melts away, the snowcapped, conical cone of Mount Edgecumbe reveals itself as one of the most beautiful places in Alaska. Our kayaking tours offer a unique opportunity to explore this breathtaking beauty!

Locally owned and operated by Charlie Jordan, SEAK Adventure was created from his passion for the outdoors and his commitment to helping others experience the island that he loves. Charlie is a passionate outdoor enthusiast who grew up in Texas, spending his childhood camping, rock climbing, backpacking and fishing. Through Boy Scouts of America he earned the highest rank of Eagle Scout, and attended Stephen F. Austin University where he earned a BS in Forestry – Outdoor Recreation.
