Making the Most of Your Shore Excursion in Sitka?

Get to know me

I'm a passionate tour owner in Sitka, Alaska, and enjoy exploring and sharing the wonders of this beautiful community. When our family moved back in in 2009 to raise our two boys, Sitka captured my heart with its rich history, breathtaking scenery, and vibrant culture. I take pride in creating memorable custom experiences for visitors, showcasing the best that Sitka has to offer. When I'm not guiding tours, you can find me actively involved in community events and supporting school activities, nurturing the close-knit bonds that make Sitka so special. I can't wait to share my love for this place with you on our adventure together!

Hi there!
