I was traveling with my two twenty-something children, and the smiles on their faces were worth the price of admission. My daughter, Ivey, had told me ahead of time she was not going to put a carrot in her mouth to feed to a reindeer,...More

The refuge is a hike from the port but the drive is scenic and our driver was interesting. The refuge is not a slick, developed facility. It is a rough property in the woods without sidewalks. If you have limited mobility, this is not a...More

This was a truly fun visit. We got lucky that the bus filled with cruise excursion folks were late and got a private tour with Steve with a much smaller group of people. Steve's animal calls alone makes this visit well worth it. It's amazing...More

This was the best excursion of our entire 19 day Holland-American land/cruise trip. We love animals and if you do too, then this “show” won’t disappoint. We bought our tickets online directly from them, not on the cruise ship, and had a rental car reserved...More

There is a small rent-a-car agency in Haines. They will pick you up, take you to their gift shop/rental facility. Real nice people and the car is very reasonable. Haines is small so easy to get around.

Yes, some you can touch, others are view only, but that is just a few. It's an animal encounter like no other. Plus Steve is one of the most unique people you will ever meet. This is a must see event. But be sure and make... More
