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

Had an excellent whale watching experience with Keith S. (Teckk Outfitters) and would recommend his service to anyone who wants a personalized trip to see whales. The boat was small (6 people) which allowed us to see whales as close as possible, and Keith's knowledge of the area and the waters was a bonus.

Teckk outfitters is a family run company that takes pride in the service it provides. I contacted Edna by phone...I think that's the best way since the internet service in Icy Point is not totally reliable..We had Gus for a guide, a knowledgeable, personable young man who knew a lot about bears. He took us on the back roads where... More

We had a great morning with Keith who met us near the cruise ship dock at 8 am for our 3 hour fun adventure. Keith was born and raised locally in the Hoonah area and knows it inside/out. On the way to the harbor in his van, he gave us an insider tour of the local area, which was quite... More

Tis family owned and operated company is the best. We took a Bear Search tour, there was a group of 4 of us. Their young sons took us into the woods where other companies won't because of the danger. We saw bears, went thru a trail that went onto the rocky beaches where bears go to get there salmon lunch.... More

I was looking forward to booking an excursion with TECKK Outfitters after reading reviews about him, as well as checking out their website and what they had to offer. I sent them 3 emails and never even received a response. At first I gave them the benefit of the doubt and perhaps they had overlooked my email so I sent... More

I built a cabin at Excursion Inlet, across the Icy Strait from Hoonah, and often have friends and family come to visit. The highlight of every trip is our "Keith Day." It has become a tradition in our family to spend at least one day in Hoonah each week with Keith Skaflestad and the TECKK Outfitters. Experiences are different each... More

I had always wanted to spend several days photographing wildlife in Alaska. Keith pulled together a photo safari that was fantastic. My wife and I met Keith & Edna on our 2012 cruise bear watching tour. Over the course of several days, I was able to photograph all sorts of wildlife from trails, boats and even a tree stand overlooking... More

We booked a bear watching trip for our cruise call to Icy Strait Point. We were given a meeting time of 8am and despite our anxieties were at the meeting point by 07:50. By 08:20 nobody had shown and a mobile call to the number we had went straight to voicemail. Understandably we were not impressed. We managed to get... More

Our guide, Bob, picked us up from the ship and took us to four different creeks to watch Alaska brow bears ("as big as grizzlies, but without the attitude") scooping up the spawning salmon. Where he could, he led us down trails close to the water, where we could watch the bears from about 60 feet away. The bears were... More
