    Hunter 29' Sailing Charter! Discover Alaska

    We had the most incredible time aboard!! Checking in and out the boat was a breeze and dealing with Nate and Kate was very smooth. The day we were supposed to go out wasn't ideal and Nate offered to change to the following day which was beautiful. We will definitely be back and recommend this company in the future! Thanks again, Dan & Kirsten

    Row Boat Rental & Fishing in Sterling, Alaska

    Everything worked out great. Frank, the transport guy was very friendly and helpful. Daniel (I think that was his name) was also friendly and helpful, even when a couple of our requests were a little confusing. The time frame for using the boat was very flexible. Will use again when we return

    Charter the 28′ Cuddy Cabin in Whittier, Alaska

    Greg was super responsive and very accommodating. I will definitely rent with these guys again. Besides one issue with a windshield wiper that was really no big deal, the Elaine C was perfect! Went around 150 miles on 50 gallons of diesel fuel...
