Visited her in June 16 whilst on a cruise of Alaska. It was a truly wonderful experience. Two remarkable men doing a remarkable thing. Get up close to the animals looked after by a crazy Steve and a calmer Mario. We were greeted by Mario with a Golden Eagle on his arm and then taken to join Steve who introduced... More

We went on an excursion through our cruise line (Princess) and it could not have been any better. Far exceeded my expectations! Steve is unbelievable...entertaining, charismatic, super smart. His partner at the wildlife refuge, Mario, was also fantastic. We learned a lot but we also completely LOVED seeing the animals and being able to touch some of them. I loved... More

Steve, Mario and the others have done an excellent job of mixing entertainment with a deep love and knowledge of wildlife and the environment. I have never been so close to such incredible animals and my kids (2 and 4) were enthralled. They had a seamless way to move people through the centre and yet allow those who needed more... More

Thanks to Steve, Mario and Lilly for making this easily one of the best ever excursions I ever booked via #PrincessCruises we were a family of 4 including my 84 year old mother who had the time of her life! This is special and not to be missed.

Steve and Mario were extraordinary. They are both so knowledgeable about wildlife, but they are incredibly entertaining at the same time. I absolutely recommend this tour for everyone visiting Alaska. It is a MUST DO!

It was truly wonderful to meet the animals close up. There were wolves, bear, lynx, moose, reindeer, wolverines, mink, porcupines,weasils, Hawks, oh my! This is not a zoo! It is a refuge. The animals who live have had their lives saved and have a good life. The caring owners, Steve and Mario have a special relationship with all their animals.... More

This is a must see tour for anyone coming to Alaska. Steve and Mario are the perfect combination, one goofy and excited, one calm and scientific. I will let you figure out who is who. Here, we petted a fox, porcupine, and reindeer, kissed a moose and saw a grizzly bear, wolf, wolverine and several other types of animals, all... More

The folks here are definitely passionate about animals. Unfortunately that passion does not extend to the habitat and enclosures these animals live in. All of the enclosures are sub-standard. The habitats created for the animals are not adequate. My husband is a wildlife biologist that worked for years in habitat. We also live around the same animals that live in... More

Highly recommend this educational tour with Steve and Mario. You get up close to the animals and actually get to touch and pet some of them. Well worth the time and $. I loved this tour. Thanks!

Thank Lori J
