This is a family owned outfit and our tour was run by two of the sons, Killian and Torsen, both very professional and personable. The van was not the newest but the trip was great. The young men clearly have pride in their heritage and their town - they are also very knowledgeable and caring about the natural environment. And... More

We took a 'Bear Hunt' excursion with TECKK Outfitters. We were picked up on time and at the location where stated in their confirmation. There were eight of us in our group and we enjoyed the individualized accommodations in the large van. Keith - one of the sons was our driver and guide and narrator. He was great! Very informative...

These guys were great. Almost too good. Dont even consider any other local offers to drive you around cause that's all you'll get. With Teckk Outfitters we hiked (easy and short) along a river where the bears were catching salmon. Super nice local family business.

This was the third time I have had the pleasure of going out with Keith. I was so fortunate to have been referred to him, from ship naturalist Dirk, over 10 years ago. Sadly, I don't get to Hoonah often enough. :( I treasure Keith's genuine manner and am humbled by his hard working expertise. He tries extremely hard to... More

I just got back from my Alaskan Cruise and I couldn't wait to write this review! Before getting on our cruise I wanted to make sure we were going to get the best out of the money we spent! As everyone would want to do after spending a few thousand dollars on the cruise alone! I looked up a few... More

My husband and I did a tour of Hoonah and the surrounding area with TECKK in September 2014. This was, hands down, the best tour/cruise excursion we took in Alaska and has provided us with memories that will not soon be forgotten! When we disembarked at Icy Strait Point, I knew we were on the right tour when we bypassed... More

The boat utilized for this tour is the family's fishing boat, which has limited visibility, no bathroom facilities and is quite uncomfortable. The location of the boat versus the whales requires a at least an hour and 15 minute ride to whales feeding grounds out of a three hour tour. The aluminum boat bangs up and down on the waves...

My son and I had a wounded foul time out on the whale tour and also seen several bears on ou tour. Both our guidance were very knowledgeable about the history of Hoonah and it's native people. Can't wait to come back

Torsten and Payton took a small group of about 8 of us on our bear search. They were punctual, personally greeted everyone as we arrived, and told us about themselves, their beautiful island and the animals that live here as we drove the 10 miles or so to Game Creek. As we neared a bridge another tour group with a... More
