The first day I arrived in Hoonah I went out on the TECKK Outfitters' whale watching tour and had a very nice boat ride while out in search of the whales. We saw plenty of Humpbacks and I got some good photos of whale tails. We also saw porpoises and other sea life. Captain Killian was very good at moving... More

Our group of 13 enjoyed the combination trip of whale watching and bear viewing. This is a family owned outfitting company with many family members working and guiding. We saw lots of whales and some of our group saw bears up close and personal, including a small grizzy cub climb a tree. This company is not as well organized as... More

In short, we paid $100 each for a bear tour in early July 2014 and what we got was a breakneck van drive down a dirt road for 3 hours that left us all jostled, five of us feeling carsick and all 11 of us feeling like we'd been taken for a ride in a more metaphorical sense. We consulted... More

Enjoyed our bear search with TECKK Outfitters. We were lucky enough to see a 3-4 year old brown bear that probably weighed 650 pounds. The bear was definitely interested in us, but our guides had three riffles between them so we were well protected. We had a great time talking with the guides and listening to their stories about living... More

This was one of the best whale watching experiences you can get. The tour is private, with a very knowledgeable native, who keeps you entertained with interesting facts and stories about whales, the nearby wildlife, the natives, and the area. He takes you right out to where the whales are, and keeps a respectful distance away. We saw whale feeding,... More

This adventure by far was the highlight of my Alaskan cruise. I expected a van ride into the bush in the rain to be a bit underwhelming. But hold onto your 50 calibers baby. Keith & company spotted a 400-500 pounder in the wild and we pulled over. He grabbed a leaf off a bush and began to call the... More

Ashia's Pie Pops were recommended to us and they were fabulous! Well presented and very tasty. Double shot latte was great too, served by a Ashia! Thank you!

Well first off, I know they cannot guarantee and they dont guarantee seeing any bears. That said, after 3 hours of nothing but driving, well, no bears at all were spotted. After seeing the pictures on their website, I assumed there would be some hiking as shown in their pictures, however we never left the van with exception of our... More

I actually booked this the night before and received a prrompt email. The guides were at the appointed meeting place and drove us to the boat. Captain Kilian and Tom greeted us and we boarded a clean, modern boat with open deck and enclosed area for warmer seating. Captain Killian's family owns the business and he was very informative about... More
