We will doing a land tour and southbound cruise. Will be in Sumner to board Norwegian Sun.Fullest day there is boarding day. We need a relatively short tour(maybe four or five hours so we can travel from Sumner to Cooper Landing and back in time to board at about 6:00p.m.) Like everyone we hope to sight bears--a tall order. Could Alaska Wildland Adventures accomodate our needs? Group will be me, my two grown children and their spouses. Thank you. Henry Goldbaum
