My mom and I picked this as one of our excursions in May 2015 during our cruise and it was one of my favorite excursions. We didn't realized we would be taking a boat ride over to Haines from the cruise ship but we felt that was an added bonus! The boat and bus driver were very educational, and the... More

Mario and his business partner have been rescuing animals one would normally expect to be wild for a long time. They have found an orphan moose, two Canadian lynx, lots of rodents - mink, porcupine, and ermine and a wolf. Since these orphan animals grew up in their care, they are all comfortable with Mario and his partner. We walked... More

Steve and Mario and their entire team have done an exceptional job caring for all the animals at their facility. They are very entertaining and knowledgeable about the animals and many other interesting facts. I fed Karen the moose a carrot (which she ate from my mouth), FUN! When you are in the Haines area, take the time to visit... More

My husband, parents and brother and I went to Kroschel's as one of our first stops on our Alaskan cruise. It was a fantastic experience! Seeing the wildlife up close and seeing how passionate the owners are was a great time. My favorite part was kissing the moose, although it was more interested in eating carrots. I also enjoyed feeding... More

Myself, my 80 year old father and my husband went to check this place out...we left all agreeing it was the highlight of our week in Haines ( and we did about everything you can do). We all three learned about these amazing animals and it is very obvious Mario and Steve love everyone of these animals! Steve is very... More

First we were greeted by Steve and Mario at the gate. They are hilarious!!! :) It was great to hear them tell stories about where they've been and what they've done. As they're showing us the beautiful animals they have saved and take care of. And they are all so beautiful. So much to see and learn. We kissed a... More

You will not ever find anything remotely similar. It is an informative, entertaining, memory of a lifetime. It is easy to get to - take the ferry from Skagway to Haines, rent a car and take the beautiful drive up through a river valley filled with eagles and join Steve and Mario and their animal companions. This is one you... More
