A very enjoyable afternoon catching halibut, then as a big added bonus we trolled alongside several orcas who were almost close enough to reach out and touch.

Wow! We have been whale watching a dozen times times in and around Alaska, and this was the most amazing experience we've ever had. Billy knew right where the whales were, and set us up to spend time with a pod of orca who came up to visit us. Probably the most amazing 3 hours of vacation I've ever had. Thank you Billy!

We used Wooshkitaan Tours to independently book two tours during our Carnival Spirit Alaskan cruise. We were in Icy Strait/Hoonah for about 7 hours. This allowed us to fish with Bikky Mills and the kayak with Cody from Fair Weather Kayaking. Wosshkitann took care of transportation, booking, payment, and all questions. The exact spot we ended fishing was the exact spot to start kayaking. Billy is a retired police officer and was a great captain. We caught halibut and one cod. We had the option of shipping home but we just did catch and release. We were the only two on the boat. You can buy your $15 fishing license one the boat with cash. We also saw several bears. If you don’t think you want to kayak afterwards, go with Billy on an afternoon whale watching tour after fishing. The kayak was very nice and doable for all levels. We saw a bear and lots of eagles. Cody, our guide, was very knowledgeable about the area.

We had a fabulous experience with Captain Billy! We were on a cruise with family and wanted a more personal whale watching experience than the larger boats provide. We truly lucked out with Captain Billy who provided an amazing experience, especially for the person who we were celebrating with a dream trip to Alaska! Billy is born and raise in Hoonah so knows the waters like the back of his hand. He is incredibly knowledgable about the area and it's inhabitants and answered all our questions patiently. We HIGHLY recommend booking a whale watching excursion directly with Captain Billy!

After our fishing charter got cancelled we looked around Hoonah for another option of something to do on our cruise stop, when we found Captain Billy. This tour is MUCH different than the other whale watching trips as we were a full group with 6 guest on board, where when booked with the cruise ship it would be 100 people. We were able to get much closer to the whales than other boats while still not disturbing them. Saw a pod of 8 Orcas, pod of 6 humpbacks doing Bubble net feeding, and one humpback breaching many times for us to see! It was incredible and Billy is born and raise from Hoonah! HIGHLY recommend to book Billy if you are in Icy Strait Point or Hoonah.
