The Explorer
  Our new vessel "Explorer", designed and built   in 1996, is a custom 30' aluminum boat. 
  It serves us well in providing the stability,   comfort, visibility and feel of a larger vessel in   combination with the speed, beachability, and   maneuverability of a smaller boat.

  The Explorer has a heated cabin, an enclosed   head (bathroom), and is beachable for easy   landings.

Our rates for water taxi services are economical and based on mileage to and from drop-off and pickup locations. Day tours and escorted sea kayaking costs are based on the number
of people (up to six) and your specific interests. Overnight tours can also be arranged.
Scuba diving rates are based on a location/time basis.

We are happy to provide suggestions and logistical information to make your trip into Western Prince William Sound safe and enjoyable.

"We had a great trip in the Sound these last few days.
Mike did a great job on the water taxi
- very engaging and entertaining, happy to slow down for wildlife viewing,
very relaxed and flexible to work with.
Thanks Again,"
- Sheila
