Captain Terry

Holding a 1600-ton Master, United States Coast Guard license upon ocean waters, Terry has traveled the world as a professional mariner in the fishing, yachting, research, oil, and tourism industries.  With ocean crossings, Panama Canal passages, and sport fishing throughout the world, he brings safety and confidence to the forefront each day.

Terry has a love for wildlife and the marine environment in general, and he’s been exploring the waters of the Kenai Fjords, Gulf of Alaska and Prince William Sound around Seward for over 25 years.  An established marine mammal naturalist and published researcher, Terry is also a professional photographer and performance artist.   It is his goal to be the catalyst for an enjoyable day on the ocean.

Captain Andy

Captain Andy has spent over 25 years working on and teaching others about the ocean.  He has been licensed as Master of Vessels to 200 Gross Tons, on any ocean, for more than 20 years. He has also worked as a maritime safety and navigation instructor for 12 years at the State of Alaska Maritime Training Center.

After studying marine biology and fisheries management in college, Andy went on to work for the government, operating oceanographic research vessels. Since 1996, Captain Andy has been guiding exclusively in the waters around Seward.

In the off-season, Andy serves as an Alaskan representative on the North Pacific Fishery Management Council. This regional management council is responsible for sustainably managing Alaska’s valuable federal fisheries.

In short, you would be hard-pressed to find a more experienced and competent guide for your wildlife or glacier tour.

The Boats

Both of our custom-built boats – the Gray Light and Keepin’ It Reel – are regularly inspected by the Coast Guard to ensure they exceed all current safety regulations. Not only is our safety record perfect for the last 20+ years, but our vessels were designed with the comfort of the passenger in mind. Each of our boats has a roomy and heated cabin, comfortable seating for all, a private restroom, and state-of-the-art marine electronics.

Our boats are fast! Both boats can cruise at highway speeds, if necessary, but we generally like to slow down to a comfortable 25 miles per hour for our tours. That way, we can cover some territory and take you deep into the wilderness where the best glacier and wildlife viewing occur.

Our Location in Seward

Seward is a small, historic town located right on Resurrection Bay, with easy access to Kenai Fjords National Park and Alaska’s Maritime National Wildlife Refuge. Surrounded by majestic peaks and pristine glaciers, we are located approximately 2 hours south of Anchorage International Airport via a National Scenic Byway.
