Sea Cycles are a new unique way to enjoy the ocean and beautiful wilderness surrounding our island and city of Ketchikan Alaska. Sea Cycling is essentially the same as kayaking and boating all in one. Much more stable, propeller driven, quiet, and easy because you use your legs which leaves your hands available to take photos or use binoculars etc. Our floathouse base is located in one of the most historical coves in Southeast Alaska, Ward Cove. It is an authentic working cove today as well as having tremendous history of Alaskas vital industries, culture, lifestyles, and abundant wildlife along its rich coastline. Sea Cycling is for all ages and fitness level. Each bike has a 550 lb weight limit and can hold up to 4 people, with the two on the front peddling. Each tour has two expert guides and friendly staff in the floathouse to assist our guests in preparing for a fantastic water tour adventure. We look forward to serving you in 2016!
Our company is owned and operated by two local families:
The Updikes: Bill & Amber and their three children; Angelina, Cody, Naomi
The Taylors: Ron & Vicki and their six children; Travis, Jayley, Brent, Jake, Jaden and Sam
The Updikes have lived on a remote island, off the grid, in a cedar cabin on the beach for 21 years. During that time they have been the hub for families to gather and do subsistant logging, fishing, edible/medicinal harvesting etc. They love Alaska and sharing it’s bounty with those who visit.
The Taylor family have a love of the outdoors and Alaska. They are involved in multiple youth and community organizations that allow people of all ages to experience the wilderness around Ketchikan. Their kids do a lot traveling throughout the state and get to enjoy other aspects of wilderness and lifestyles unique to Alaska. Everyone is looking forward to sharing their knowledge and experience with those who honor us by coming to visit Ketchikan.
Between the two families they have over 40 years of experience on the ocean and in the wilderness of Alaska. The Updikes and the Taylors have had a lot of fun creating this tour for our guests and we thank you for considering us when choosing what to enjoy while here in Ketchikan. We are honored to be a part of creating exceptional memories with our guests during their discovery of our lovely community.
