Dena took four of us out for several hours with great photo instruction around Skagway, Alaska. She found several different type of photo assignments, and was pleasant and informative about the area, about photograpy and about Alaska in general. Highly recommend!!

This was a terrific trip! Our pro, Rachel, not only took us to locations with breathtaking scenery, but was able to assist photographers of all skill levels, with all kinds of cameras take great photographs. She was friendly, very well informed about the area and a pleasure to tour with. Leave your tripod in your hotel room, she has them... More

Kayaking at Chilkoot lake was a real treat. We went to Haines as part of our cruise itinerary and the option to kayak in this beautiful glacial lake. Miriam and Greg made the experience fun for everyone. Some of us had experience in kayaks while others were first timers. Everyone had fun and came back to the docks dry.🤗 The... More

While on an American Cruise Lines cruise stop in Haines we very much enjoyed a half day kayaking trip at Chilcoot Lake State Park lead by Miriam and Greg of Rainbow Glacier Adventures. Miriam was our main land and transportation guide and was a font of knowledge about Alaska among other things. During the winter she goes up north to... More

Our group of four enjoyed the Skagway Photo tour a great deal. Two of us learned a lot and the other two, a bit more proficient, were able to brush up on long-neglected skills. And even if you only use your iPhone, you will see beautiful scenery and gorgeous vistas. Booking was quick and professional and Joe even nudged the... More

Well respected and trusted. The owner, Joe, wrote a really cool and beautiful book on the Chill at area. We enjoyed our float trip down the Chill at river with them. A bit pricey for the float trip, but very nice.

We didn't know exactly what to expect when we embarked on this adventure. We met our contact in Skagway where our cruise ship docked, took the ferry across to Haines where we were picked up and transported to Chilkoot Lake for nearly 2 hours of kayaking. I'd never kayaked before. I hadn't rowed a boat in 40 years. Our three... More

Peter Hines and his team provided a wonderful photography coaching excursion out of Skagway. They are knowledgeable, helpful, educational and fun. I came away with some great pix and new confidence in my own photography skills. Highly recommended.

After doing a lot of research I decided to book the Haines Photography Tour to add to my Alaskan cruise vacation. I emailed my interest and received a quick response from Joe Ordonez which explained all the details and was very happy to help. The tour was led by a professional photographer Thomas Hartman. He met me at the dock... More

Our morning with Dena was superb. She knew where the eagles hung out and nested. Able to see a baby eagle via her spotting scope. She had also seen bear scat the day before and we returned to that place and saw a momma bear and her cub across the river. Got great shots. Best of all, she explained settings... More
