Tom Ganner took us to see some of Fort Seward, and suggested where/how to get the most interesting shots. Then took us to Chilkoot State Park for more photo ops. The following day, we took the ferry to Skagway, where we met with Thomas for more photo ops. They both took us to places we would not have seen otherwise.... More

Floating down the Chilkat River into the Alaska Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve with Joe Ordonez was simply fabulous (even despite the rain). We had an up close and personalized look at the magnificent Alaskan wildlife. We saw tons of young bald eagles and several mature bald eagles. The rain actually was a benefit, because we were told they were perched... More

Barbara was our guide and she was so nice and very knowledgeable. We got photos of a momma bear and her two cubs and saw several eagles. We couldn't have ask for a better tour and Barbara made it so much fun.

We booked based on Trip Advisor reviews and couldn't have been happier. The pickup at the cruise ship pier and ferry ride over to Haines only added to the real experience. Once we met Brie in Haines, we knew we would be in good hands. On the road to the lake we encountered a mama bear and her cubs and... More

Tom Ganner led us on a photographic tour from Skagway along the Klondike Highway into British Columbia. I learned more about my camera during that tour than I have in the six years I have owned it. The photographs I took during and after that excursion are beyond compare to those I had taken previously. Setting up shots and controlling... More
