You will NEVER see wildlife like this anywhere else in the world. I kissed a moose!!! And my son got to feed a baby caribou. And sitting less than two feet from a real live wolverine is as terrifying and exhilarating as it sounds… Bring bug spray- the mosquitoes are deadly, but it is worth every bite!!!

Definitely a unique experience to see the animals up close, along with their handlers (who are wild and crazy, too). Very entertaining - educational with silly moments

Out in the boonies outside of Haines the walk around with the "tour guide" "friend" goes up some hills and over bumpy ground but not a problem. Seeing these animals - moose, mountain lion, mink, caribou, a bear and many many others was a thrill. You are in their environment and are able to pet some, like the porcupine, while... More

While I was in Haines photographing Eagles, I had the opportunity to connect with Steve and photograph some of his Alaskan animals. This was an extraordinary experience! Steve is a very kind and caring person and it very apparant how much he loves these animals. This turned out to be the highlight of my adventure to Alaska and hope that... More

I never imagined that there was a place like this anywhere...Steve and Mario taught us so many things about animals that we never knew. If I could live my life over again, I would come here always and try to learn all that I could from them. They are angels ,who would do anything to make sure their furry and... More

Just loved it. You get exactly what you might think it is...two Alaska naturalists who are crazy passionate about their animals, their environment, and their planet. Pet an American Marten on the tush, feed a reindeer by hand, watch a porcupine carefully reach out its paw to take a carrot from you, and of course, kiss Karen the Moose. All... More

What ever you do in Haines don't miss this. We arrived by Ship and just hired a car across the road from the port then drove 40 mins and on the way we drove through an Eagle Sanctuary and saw heaps of Bald Headed Eagles on the way. Steve Kroschel is so nice and so was the other guy that... More

We were on a group tour here in July 2014. We were told to "just go!" By our tour directors. I am so glad we did. Steve and Mario and, of course, the animals are my new favorite wild men. You will be glad you went.

Steve and Mario are absolutely hilarious and informative. They have such a passion for their animals. I really dont want to dpoil any of it by giving details. My wife kelly and I went on our honeymoon and it was the best experience of our entire cruise. We even got lucky enough to only have 4 other people there on... More
