We had an amazing adventure out on beautiful calm, clear and sunny Icy Strait with Captain Billy! Fishing, breaching whales, sea otters and porpoise sliding through the water right next to our boat. He took us close to shore so we could watch a huge, meandering brown bear. We had a fantastic time and would do it again in a heart beat when we are in Hoonah again. Highly recommend Captain Billy and his boating adventures on the Silver Spoon!

Went out twice with Billy on the Silver Spoon. 1st Day Whale watching was a dream come true! He knew right where the whales were and waited patiently with us as we screamed in delight! What a fantastic sight, I got used to listening for the spouting and would quickly turn to see multiple humpback whales. Saw a good share of porpoises and sea lions also. 2nd Day was Halibut fishing. It was my first experience, and it was a blast! Several of us fished, we all reeled in halibut, my daughter caught the big one, 70lbs! Billy was a great teacher and quick to rebait when needed. He also told great stories about the area and pointed out bears on the shore. I highly recommend Wooshkeetaan Tours!!

Review of: Whale Watching
Small boat that we have enjoyed; once again there was only two more people on the boat charter - so total of 4 including us :) Our captain knew where to take us and and we were lucky to see at least 12 whales :) Absolutely a must experience - make sure to book first in the morning tour.

Captain Billy was AMAZING! He knew right where to take us to see whales. At one point, two whales swam right by the boat on the right side, while another whale was jumping on the left side! It was incredible. We spent all afternoon watching the wales play and feed together. Captain Billy also took us to see bears on the shoreline (watching from the boat). So fun! The boat was clean and had all the accommodations we needed. Captain Billy was able to answer all of our questions and told us stories about the history of the native tribe as well as the island and town. Over all, it was a 5 star experience. I would HIGHLY recommend doing this!!

Review of: Whale Watching
This trip could not be better. We received a safety briefing from Captain Billy once on the boat, along with some local history and wildlife facts. It felt very safe and professional. It was a beautiful clear day and saw whales just a few minutes into the trip, breaching, diving, bubble net feeding. Captain Billy was respectful of distance but tried to maneuver the boat for the best photos. Herring were spawning so whales, dozens of eagles and bear were in close proximity. When four massive humpbacks are bubble net feeding, it takes your breath away! I was thrilled with all the great photos.
