Took this excursion from our cruise ship and was really glad I did. Our guide Dena, did an incredible job at taking us to all the best spots as well as also giving us photography tips at each point and helping each one of us out. Tripods were also available for those who came without one. We had ample time... More

Our guide Dena was fantastic, very informative, showed us the salmon being measured & weighed, salmon going up the streams, told us the history of Haines, saw glaciers, THEN, took us to lunch with three Grizzly bears, a mother & two cubs, just blew us away - fantastic. Watch the bears catching salmon & the Cubs playing in the water.... More

There was a bit of a delay when the company changed our start time and wasn't able to contact us, but once we got going it was fantastic. Our guide Miriam was wonderful and it made for a fantastic trip.

I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed your kayak experience on Chilkoot Lake. The lake is a true Alaskan gem, with waterfalls, salmon spawning streams, and deep rainforest. The location is not only incredibly scenic but is normally out of the wind so it makes for a great destination for a kayak tour. Miriam is an amazing person and... More

We had a great time photo exploring with Deena. We found a bear and her cub and followed and took pictures for over an hour. Also, some great landscapes and instruction. Had a wonderful time!! Thank you.

Peter Hines led an amazing and informative photography excursion in Haines, Alaska. He taught us so much about landscape photography in the few hours we had with him. Even in the rain we had a great time and got some beautiful pictures. We brought our camera, but he had the tripods necessary to capture some great shots. Only wish we... More

We took the Skagway in Focus Photography Tour offered on our recent Star Princess Cruise and we were very happy we did. We had a very small group and our guide, Peter Hines, took us to waterfalls and other incredibly scenic vistas above Skagway. He was patient and willing to tailor the tour to each passenger's needs. He looked at... More

I had a great time and was fortunate to see and photograph a Brown bear with her two cubs, also got a few good snaps of bald eagles. Well worth it and highly recommend!

Wife and I booked this for a cruise excursion. The ferry to Haines passes by numerous waterfalls so we even enjoyed that part. Our driver, Byrne, and our raft guide, Jared, both shared info and details about the area, community, life in Haines, and wildlife. The rafting was a peaceful float downstream and very enjoyable - our guide did all... More
