Captain Davey Lubin is a USCG licensed 100 ton master with 40 years of experience on the waters, beaches, and wildlands of Southeast Alaska. He holds a BS in forest sciences and is a certified Alaska biology teacher. He fished commercially for ten years, worked as a fisheries biologist and a US Forest Service botanist. He has been teaching Alaska natural history since 1986. Davey has served on the Alaska state trails board, the SEAtrails (Southeast Alaska Trail System) board and Sitka Whalefest board.
Currently, Davey is working towards a master’s degree in mental health counseling. He plans to "infuse the healing nature of nature!” into his professional practice. He loves to subsistence hunt, fish, gather and garden. He has SCUBA dived extensively in Southeast Alaska and kayaked thousands of miles along the north Pacific coast. Natural history and boating are not only his professions, but they are also his passions.
Davey lives happily on the shore of beautiful Sitka with his wife (executive director of Sitka Sound Science Center), two daughters, and ocean-going poodle.
What we'll do
Remote ocean waters, quiet inlets, wild animals, ancient forests and endless miles of rugged coastline await you. Let us immerse you into our beautiful Southeast Alaska wilderness.
Join us for a private full-day exploration of this globally-recognized treasure on our Sitka Sound ocean adventures. This unique opportunity will bring you and your family into the wild waterfront of the Tongass National Forest. As we glide upon the seas, stroll along the beaches and inhale the cool freshness of the old-growth forest, your expert captain-naturalist-guide will share with you the wonders of this wild paradise. Let down your hair and experience the Alaska that few ever do and many never dreamed possible!
You will depart from Sitka aboard our safe and comfortable custom-built vessel; the entire journey will be the destination. While traveling through wildlife-rich waters, your captain will choose a remote beach upon which to bring you ashore. Here, you’ll explore the beaches and forest, the flora, fauna and ecology with your biologist / guide.
