Thank you so much for giving us such a wonderful trip. We talked about your trip for days afterward. The amount of wildlife and marine life that we saw was amazing. The beautiful, rugged, unbelievable scenery is something we'll never forget. Thank you for making it so special for us. Your love, knowledge, and excitement of the area was a bonus for us that we couldn't have gotten from another tour boat. The knowledge that you have of the area gave us the unbelievable opportunity to see the grey whale and the humpback! Then on the way back you gave us another chance to see a bear and the brown bear came out for us to see! It was so exciting to be so close to such beautiful wildlife and landscape. It felt like we were a part of it for a short while. Thank-You!

We want to thank you for the wonderful time we had on our 3-hour wildlife marine tour on May 30. This tour was definitely one of the top highlights of our whole cruise and by far the most personalized. Your knowledge of Sitka and wildlife was incredible and extremely interesting. We loved seeing the humpback whales, sea otters, and the various birds in their own natural environment. What made our tour even more special was that you went out of your way to look for humpback whales for us.
After visiting the other ports on our cruise, we would have to agree that Sitka is the most beautiful and least commercialized city that we stopped at. Without hesitation, we will recommend your tours to any of our friends and family visiting Sitka. Once again, thanks for everything.
Eliza and Jennifer Yee – Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts
Thank you again for a wonderful tour of the Sitka wildlife habitats. The time that Diane and I spent with you was definitely one of the highlights for our Alaskan visit. If we hadn't boarded the Esther G we would have never seen the diversity of wildlife that you exposed to us. Your knowledge and congeniality added to our enjoyment, as did Lisa's wonderful chocolate chip cookies.

Thank you for such a wonderful experience in Sitka. We'll never forget our day out on your boat, and all of the wonderful wildlife and scenery that you were able to show us. We're already planning a future trip to Alaska to include more time in Sitka.
Karen & Jace Neuenschwander – Aubrey, Texas
I just want to thank you again for the wonderful tour of your beautiful Sitka by the Sea. This excursion was the best of my entire trip to Alaska and I will someday come back to visit again.
Karen Henderson – San Antonio, Texas
I wanted to tell you also what a wonderful experience your excursion was for me. Sitka was by far my favourite port and the photos I took and the time I spent there was just the highlight of the entire cruise. I will recommend your excursion, without hesitation, it was the best. Your wife’s choc chip cookies just sealed the deal. Many thanks, and should I be in your neck of the woods again one day, I'll be sure to book your trip again.
Lisa Murden – Queensland, Australia.
Thank you for such a wonderful tour, it was one of the highlights of our trip. We all had such a great time seeing the wildlife and my brother was thrilled to see the birds on Saint Lazaria Island.
I will not hesitate to recommend you as “The Guy in Sitka”.

Jim and I wanted to thank you again for a FANTASTIC tour last Wednesday! We both agreed that it was the best tour we have been on in our three trips to Alaska. Hopefully, next time we get to Alaska we can go on another trip to see the wildlife with you!
Mary Fritsch – Dallas, Texas
We really enjoyed the day and would do it again in a heartbeat. My only complaint is that the day went by so fast. It was a terrific experience and you are so blessed to be able to enjoy the scenery on a daily basis, as we were to share it with you. Your stories and the spots we visited made the day a great one that we will never forget.
Rosemary Siewert - Burnsville, Minnesota
With your considerable background and expertise, you provided us with such a memorable tour of your beautiful Sitka Sound. Your knowledge of the wild and marine life of the area as well as Alaska history really added to our appreciation of this incredible state throughout our trip. We feel very fortunate to have experienced this area through your eyes. Thank you so much for the indelible imprint of this part of Alaska on our hearts and minds.

Here’s to memories of a great day aboard the Esther G in early September. Our trip out with you was a highlight of our three-week trip. Thanks for everything!
Hughes and Judy Moir – Nederland, Colorado
My husband and I recently had the wonderful experience of your hospitality when we were in Alaska earlier this month. I just wanted to tell you your tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Alaska........ To see Sitka and Alaska through your eyes was such a treat and one that Jim and I will remember for a long time. If ever we return we will be sure and book some time with you and we have already recommended you to several friends who may travel to Alaska in the future.
