We stopped in Skagway while on a Princess Cruise. After much research we decided on the Kroschel Alaska Animal Kingdom. We wanted to see wildlife and we got way more than we bargained for! The guys, Steve and Mario, were so much fun and incredibly knowledgeable. We took our 8 year old niece and she was in absolute heaven. Unlike... More

We found The Kroschel Flims Wildlife Center to be an exceptional experience for animal lovers to have the opportunity to see local wildlife up close and in a safe and educational environment that is appropriate for people from all walks of life. Steve and Mario provided fun and fact-filled stories about the animals they have rescued - most are orphans... More

Got close to Kitty (she was behind a fence). I got close to a wolf, porcupine, caribou, weasel and other exotic animals. A wonderful experience. Steve, Mario and Rocky were very nice to me. I will never forget them. Mrs. Ianthe Johnson, Concho, Ariz.

This place has great animals to view interesting animals up close. Having kids pet a moose was great. However medical theories shouldn't confuse the great conservationist message.

This was the best part of our Alaska cruise. Our time at the Kroschel films wildlife Center was tremendous. All the animals we meet were beautiful and obviously well cared for. Steve and Mario were our guides and we were captivated the entire time - we didn't want to leave. Their passion for wildlife, ecology, and learning were infectious. So... More

Wonderful couple of hours with Mr. Kroschel, Mario and the animals. Learned a lot about these fascinating creatures and a new appreciation for our fragile ecosystem and the importance of saving our environment and looking after our fellow-creatures. Time and money well spent

A cruise to Alaska will always have amazing things to see, and you won't be disappointed. This place is nevertheless the best shore excursion I've ever taken on the several cruises I've taken. The folks giving the tour have their routine, but it's not a zoo. And it's clear that they care so much about the animals they manage. Skagway... More

This is truly a unique experience. You will never be able to get this up close and personal with these types of indigenous animals. Mario and Steve truly love what they do and it shows. They have a special connection with these animals. LOVED IT! Even if you are not an animal lover I think you would like it.

I am reflecting back on a wonderful day spent in Haines, made more perfect by the shore excursion chosen. The wonderful wildlife and animal center was made most enjoyable by the hosts. We were met by Mario and a red tailed hawk perched on his arm. This was only the beginning of up close encounters of Alaska wildlife. A beautiful... More

Came here end of May 2014. This will be the closest you will get to these types of animals in a mostly controlled environment. They hold tours primarily when the cruise ships are in so you will need to call ahead and plan. Price not listed on website but I think it was btwn $40-$50 pp. The wildlife center is... More
