By far this is the most enjoyable trip we have taken."
We would travel with the Sikumi again. This is a huge statement for us - we usually plan our own trips. By far this is the most enjoyable trip we have taken.
Best family vacation Ever"
Our statement as we left the boat was: We don’t want to leave? When can we come back? We would love to do another trip with Sikumi. This was the best family vacation ever.
Saw all we hoped for and more"
Nancy and I thoroughly enjoyed the cruise on the Sikumi. It had just the right mix of sight seeing, fishing, kayaking and relaxation. We saw all that we had hoped to and more. Not sure how Kurt did it but he promised us brown bears one morning and sure enough there was four of them near a salmon stream and then we all saw more when he took us a few at a time in the skiff with jet motor. The same when he told us should see black bears, we were all kayaking and the Sikumi went ahead and anchored where we were going spend the night. Amy got the call that a bear was on the beach and it was still there when we arrived by kayak, then when we were back on the boat for dinner a sow and three cubs showed up. The fishing was great had a good feed of prawns that we caught, unfortunately didn't get as many crabs as hoped to. Nancy caught some rock fish which were the first fish she has ever caught.
We looked forward to everyday"
We enjoyed that the trip was based to experience the outdoors (versus going into ports). The combination of experiences, the national forest hiking, shoreline watching for bears, deer and sea lions, to the kayaking made the trip ideal for us. I liked that we fished - crab and shrimp pots, and fishing. We looked forward to every day.
Always had everything we needed"
We felt like we were living at our own house- it was that comfortable, but we were waited on hand and foot, and always had everything we needed.
Best vacation yet!"
We had a fantastic time! I have traveled the world to some very exotic destinations and I and my wife (and her parents) agree that this was the best vacation yet!
Freedom to go where we needed to"
Sikumi's best feature is the mobility of the ship - freedom to go where we needed to; to avoid bad weather and get to the wildlife.
