We have just returned from a cruise on the Celebrity Millenium and one port of call was at Icy Strait Point where we booked a bear view tour with TECKK. It the best tour we have ever taken. Torsten met us from the ship with Nells and Adam. Torsten is very proud of his heritage and also has great knowledge... More

We were on a cruise with a stop in Icy Strait. Rather than booking thru the cruise, we booked our tour direct with Teckk Outfitters and it was an amazing experience. I would definitely recommend them without hesitation. It is a family operation and our guides were Torsten and David part of the family. It was about a 3 hour... More

My husband and I did this tour while docked in Hoonah. It is a family run business and the boys were our tour guides. They were very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. They tried very hard to find some bears for us. Unfortunately we only saw the tail end of one bear as he ran in the woods. We... More

If you don't want a canned, scripted or prepackaged tour, look no further. TECKK works out of Hoonah Alaska where the owners, Torsten, Edna, Clarence(Keith), Killian and Kole, live. I have always craved a "real" experience wherever I have traveled. I, without a second thought, declare TECKK to be the best tour company I have ever been with. I have... More

I am a travel agent and have been booking with Teckk for many years. They treat everyone like they are family and work very hard to ensure everyone has a great experience while they are whale or bear watching. I enjoy working with them and have met them personally many times.

I wanted to take my family bear watching, but all the cruise ship bear watches were full. Lucky for me! I found TECKK outfitters on the web and called Edna to book a tour. Our ship tendered at Icy Strait Point and Keith (dad), Killian (eldest son and navy vet) and Torsten (youngest son and recent HS grad) met us... More

This is a family owned outfit and our tour was run by two of the sons, Killian and Torsen, both very professional and personable. The van was not the newest but the trip was great. The young men clearly have pride in their heritage and their town - they are also very knowledgeable and caring about the natural environment. And... More

We took a 'Bear Hunt' excursion with TECKK Outfitters. We were picked up on time and at the location where stated in their confirmation. There were eight of us in our group and we enjoyed the individualized accommodations in the large van. Keith - one of the sons was our driver and guide and narrator. He was great! Very informative...

These guys were great. Almost too good. Dont even consider any other local offers to drive you around cause that's all you'll get. With Teckk Outfitters we hiked (easy and short) along a river where the bears were catching salmon. Super nice local family business.

This was the third time I have had the pleasure of going out with Keith. I was so fortunate to have been referred to him, from ship naturalist Dirk, over 10 years ago. Sadly, I don't get to Hoonah often enough. :( I treasure Keith's genuine manner and am humbled by his hard working expertise. He tries extremely hard to... More
