We had a beautiful day for whale watching and the whales did not disappoint! We were able to see them bubble feeding numerous times during our three hours on the water. The boat captain and his assistant were wonderful. Very knowledgeable about the whales and...More

Just returned from Alaska and we did this trip last week. Lots of humpbacks close to the boat and while we didn't get the money shot of a tail waiving, or whales leaping out of the water, this is hardly Hoonahs fault! We also saw...More

Loved the whale watching trip. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and we couldn’t believe how many whales we saw. If we are lucky enough to visit Alaska again we will definitely use Hoonah Travel Adventures.

Fabulous 3hr trip. Although it took some time to find bears we did... and we got pretty close and observed them playing and eating for some time. Recommended!

The guide did his best, but we only caught a glimpse of a couple of bears that were faraway. This tour could be a hit or miss, so can’t blame the guide at all.

Sorry for the delay in answering: I haven't been here for awhile. No, they don't ride with you. This was a drive yourself type of adventure, but they do supply you with plenty of map info and suggestions about where to go.
