Guests are asked to arrive for their water taxi at the top of J-Dock Ramp 10-15 minutes before their scheduled departure time so that they and other guests can depart timely to the island. Failure to timely meet the water taxi can result in considerable inconvenience, delay and cost to guests in that an alternative water taxi may not be possible to arrange on any given day. For this reason, we ask that our guests call us (907)-362-9014 the day before their departure date to the island.
And because we cannot guarantee returning to Seward earlier than 12:30 PM on the day of their return from the island, guests should be careful in scheduling early departure flights out of Anchorage (2.5 hour drive from Seward) or bookings with independent tours, i.e. allow adequate time for such commitments. We ask that guests advise Orca Island staff of scheduled early flight departures or bookings with independent tours at the time of their booking to avoid scheduling conflicts. Departure times from Orca Island Cabins are confirmed at check-in.
