We had a great time on the whale watching tour. In addition to see many Humpback whales, we saw a mamma bear with her four cubs, two moose, and many seals, sea lions, and otters. The staff was courteous and knowledgeable.

We did see sea otters, sea lions, eagles, and many whales. We got into a feeding area and there were at least 5 whales.. As were were heading back to port we saw... More

Clean bathroom on board. Saw lots of whales. Not packed in with 150 people. Boat holds about 14 people. Highly recommend. Picked up and dropped off by ship. 1 mile van... More

Icy Point Strait is basically a "made up" port for many cruise lines visiting Alaska. 95% of the shore excursions can only be booked through the excursion desks of each cruise line. However, book directly with Hoonah Travel Adventures and you'll have a superfantastic experience. Their "four wheeler" tour of the surrounding area is amazing. Using logging roads, you'll have...

The vehicle was in excellent condition although a bit noisy. We were glad of the noise when the bear jumped out in front... More

Greatest whale watching tour I have ever been on (been on 3 others). Captain Paul and his assistant are fantastic, their knowledge of the animals and the area is top notch. They go out of their way to make sure everybody on the boat has a great time and sees the wild life. If you are searching for a whale... More
