Louie is dependenable and safe as we ventured out to Aialek Bay with the 6 of us and our kayaks. We stopped to watch the whales and made the shuttle very special. Super nice guy! Gave us lots of ideas for our next paddle trip too.

I highly recommend those who are looking to get most out of their Kenai Fjords sightseeing experience, to ditch the big cruises for Kenai Fjords National Park and use the services of Captain Louis and his water taxi instead. The advantage of doing so is that you can customize the trip to your liking, the maneuvers are easier and you... More

Louis ferried us to/from the Pepper Creek Cabin (Granite Point Mountain Lodge). The trip out on a Saturday afternoon was easy, and he pointed out the great kayak spot of Thumb Cove. Returning back to Seward 4 days later, Louis navigated high winds and 4' swells to carry us back. He's a cool guy, conservationist, and good Captain!

Louie was booked for us by Backcountry Safaris for two different overnight kayak trips, to Bear Glacier and to Aialek Bay. On both trips there was bad weather one way, causing large swells and whitecaps. On one of them, we probably wouldn't have been picked up on the scheduled day if Louie had not been the pilot. He was very... More

We took a round trip water taxi from Seward to Resurrection Bay with Louie in mid-June. He was great; on time, knowledgable of the area and really friendly. I definitely recommend using him if you're in the area or want to come to the area!

I took my girlfriend on a kayaking adventure to Bear Glacier out of Seward in June. Owner and captain Louie made the planning a breeze. He arranged for kayak rental and all the gear was waiting for us when we got to the small boat harbor. Louie transported us to and from the sandbar at Bear Glacier. He planned our... More

There were 6 of us, all with different ideas on how we should best spend time out on Kenai Fjords. We weren't too keen on the idea of a big boat with stacks of other people, so decided, with some trepidation, to go with Captain Louis. This turned out to be a GREAT choice. Captain Louis was extremely accommodating, right... More

Captain Louis was great to work with- he has a reputation for being on time, and he lived up to his reputation for our water taxi ride to Kayakers Cove. Would highly recommend his service- he was very accommodating to our needs, and went out his way to help us have a great trip.

Captain Louis Garding worked with my sister and I to coordinate a private trip to God's Pocket so we could say a goodbye to our friend who loved that area of Resurrection Bay. Captain Louis was great to work with over the Internet to schedule everything and was even better in person! I would recommend using Captain Louis for your... More

Capt Garding was amazing. From our first contact, he made this the best experience for us in Seward. He was incredible in helping us plan our trip and he was so accommodating to our needs. His knowledge of the area was great. He was able to take us to an area that is not well traveled and it made our... More
