Fairweather Kayak Tour
Sep 2019
This tour was fantastic, we looked for a kayak adventure at Hoonah outside of the cruise ship excursion when we came across Cody and families Fairweather Kayaks and had a superb time. We arrived earlier than expected and had to contact Cody as our ship was departing early so he was very flexible in times on the day, we were collected on from the welcome to hoonah sign and taken to the harbor where we launched in our kayaks (saving us about 2 miles of kayaking through open sea) and headed out with Cody to a island where we saw bald eagles and jumping fish, breath taking views and a lovely place to stop halfway through the tour to stretch legs etc, Cody was really knowledgeable, experienced and provided a relaxed atmosphere on the tour. When back his mum took us back to the collect our ship but not before an exciting mini and successful grizzly bear hunt (Amazing) We were on our honeymoon and this tour made our stop at Hoonah a blast and if we Highly recommend Cody and his family! you wont regret it they are so friendly! Thank you

Amazing experience you will never forget!
Aug 2019
What an amazing adventure we had with Fairweather Kayaks! I can’t say enough about how amazing this experience was. We were met right outside of the Village exit gate and driven to Hoonah where we suited up for an adventure of a lifetime. We met with our tour guide Cody who educated us all about the area, Alaska and the habitat since he grew up in town. We were a group of 6 between the ages of 8 and 73 and we all had a wonderful time with Cody. Given that we were only a group of six we were able to all have one on one conversation with our guide which made the experience more intimate and personal.

The scenery was spectacular that one couldn’t help but feel at peace while kayaking on the water. We saw some amazing wildlife and even had a chance to meet with Cody’s family who were delightful. My son left his hat in the kayak and they even returned it to the ship for us.

Cody and his team provided us with an adventure of a lifetime that we are still talking about today.

Sep 2019 • Friends
This guide rocked! I texted him weeks before coming and even there wanting to talk myself out of it but once I was situated it was a blast! I can understand why he’s on his own. Carnival’s excursion wasn’t anything close to the experience & professionalism as this company! The excitement of the Waters & area is very informative and beautiful! What’s experience for this 56 yr old women! We had the best local Fish & Chips and were so excited to be with Cody! Picked us up at port and drove us back! Thank you for the memories!

3 hour Kayak tour around Hoonah
Aug 2019
Cody was Awesome! We had a great time on our 3 hour tour around Hoonah launching from the harbor downtown. Cody was knowledgeable and a really enjoyable guide. We got to cruise with a humpback for about 20 minutes and Cody filled us in on whales and some of the local species. We beached at a small island and had a nice respite from paddling enjoying a session of beach combing and saw some abundant sea life and fantastic scenery. Cody and his family and business partners were very accommodating and helpful during our short visit off the cruise ship. HIGHLY recommend a trip with Cody and Fairweather Kayaks!

Fairweather Kayak Tours - Amazing, authentic, Alaskan experience
Sep 2019 • Solo
If you want to get out of the crowds and enjoy the natural beauty of Alaska via water this tour is for you! Not only was it half the price of the excursion center kayak tours but Cody was an amazing guide. He showed us some local wildlife and was very knowledgeable about the area. I love supporting local business over the cruise lines. I can’t recommend this tour enough.

Kayaking in Hoonah/Icy Strait Point
Aug 2019 • Couples
We just got back from our cruise. We did this excursion on our day in Icy Strait Point. It was wonderful! Beautiful scenery, lots of wildlife, and the guides are top notch. Cody and Miguel were so helpful and patient! They are natives to the area, and welearned a lot about the culture and the area. Can’t recommend them more; try a morning excursion because the water is super calm. They have a shuttle come pick you up and drop you off at the dock in Hoonah. Thanks Cody and Miguel!

Kayak tour in Hoonah
Aug 2019 • Family
This was a great tour. Kids (4 tenagers) thoroughly enjoyed the kayaking, as we did and Cody was an excellent guide who took time to point things out and provide a lot of nature info. It was great being on our private tour, away from the traffic of large group kayaks and crowds. Learned a lot and had a very relaxing time in a beautiful area. Highly recommend this tour. Very knowledgeable and reliable guide.

Amazing Day on the Water with Our Amazing Guide Cody.
Jun 2019 • Friends
Cody is a really great kayaking guide and instructor. He made us feel comfortable and safe and made sure we had a great time. He made it seem more like hanging out with friends than going on some excursion tour with a thousand other people. We were in a small group. He knows a lot about the area history and wildlife. And we saw tons of wildlife! I highly recommend you go with Fairweather Kayaks, instead of those impersonal tours offered by the cruise ships.
