We had a fantastic morning out in Haines with Tom and his Subaru! We got an early start to the day to beat the rest of the cruise ship crowds, and it was worth it; we saw 11 bears in the span of 2 hours. 3 different mama bears and their cubs, all out looking for salmon. We were able to watch them do their bear things from safe viewpoints, and . We also saw tons of bald eagles along the Chilkoot River and at the lake. Tom had his binoculars and a spotting scope, so we were able to see the eagles perched in the trees so clearly. Absolutely beautiful wildlife and scenery. Afterwards, Tom made some nice scenic stops for us, and even gave me some time at the tide pools. We then went through town, stopped at the fort briefly, and continued on our way to Chilkat State Park. The sun came out for a little while when we were there, just enough for some truly beautiful photos. Tom is a patient, knowledgeable man, with lots of facts about the town, its history, the animals, and photography. Book with him early! He only takes a few tours a week, and only 4 people at a time, so you don't want to miss out.

What a delightful day we spent with Tom as he guided us around the Chilkat Peninsula! As a retired earth science teacher and photographer, Tom has a wealth of knowledge about the geography, history, and flora and fauna of the Haines area and kept us engaged and entertained for 5 hours. He asked what I wanted to photograph and I said bears, eagles and everything in between—and he delivered! As a long-time resident, he knew all the best areas for capturing amazing images and offered helpful suggestions for camera settings and composition. It was a fantastic end to a memorable trip. Now I can’t wait to get home and start processing my images!

Tom gave us a private tour of the Haines area off our cruise boat. I think he provide a fabulous tour, with culture, wildlife and real local knowledge. He took the extra step to rent a vehicle to handle our group size. We saw Grizzly Bear Lulu and her cubs, eagles, Salmon swimming up stream, beautiful vistas, historic sites, a camp ground and got a good bit of culture and local knowledge. Tom has lived in Haines for the 5 or 6 summers now so had real experience of a local. He also taught us a few photography tricks with our I-phones. I highly recommend a tour by Tom.

Tom provided a detailed and entertaining tour of Haines and the local area. He tailored the trip to our preferences, and did not disappoint! His ability to share was engaging, informative, and entertaining. His knowledge of the area and wildlife put us in the right spots to see bears, eagles, salmon, and some unbelievable views. We will never forget seeing Lulu and her cubs fishing for salmon!
