Southeast Exposure Outdoor Adventure Center in Ketchikan Alaska Instagram Page Facebook Page Trip Advisor Page  

Your Hosts


We started Southeast Exposure back in 1986 from our home in Thomas Basin in Ketchikan. Many miles and trips later we find ourselves in a new home 14 miles out of town on 5 acres of tidelands and land. Our Outdoor Adventure Center is located in beautiul Clover Pass, just beyond Knudson Cove on Potter Rd. We have built a composting toilet facility, big dock, ramp, and a parking area. Our guides now live here on site.

Over the years we have picked up experience and more qualifications and we are still avid sea kayakers. We enjoy showing our guests around this beautiful area. On a typical day you will find Betsey Burdett at the bike rental shop at 1224 Tongass, cleaning the composting toilets or on the downtown docks directing tourists. Jared Gross (Betsey's son) can be found guiding, on the phone, driving the boat and providing direction to the guides.
