Beautiful, quaint little town with plenty to see and do while in port. Was definitely my favorite and look forward to visiting again this summer. Have to try the many flavors of freshly made mini donuts!
It was fun to see local people dressed up with their traditional costumes and playing drums to greet us when we were docking. We also saw a whale swimming by. We were lucky. After we got docked, we walked along the beautiful beach. Many kids...More
We were here at the end of the tourist season for this quaint Tingil village. The town only had a couple of local shops open, but we came across a local totem pole carving facility so we decided to stop in. The old elders of...More
A small town, mainly viewing the ex-cannery for tourists. A trip into the village is a good walk around. Locals are friendly. Small gift shops with the usual trinkets. Check the "made in" labels - not sure if they were joking, but we were told...More
Whales, seals and birds in abundance when we there. Take time to walk around the lovely well kept path, though the town itself isn’t up to much. But we weren’t there to see buildings, we were there for the whales and eagles. And we certainly...More
It is a beautiful place for retiree or person who busies in their daily life. The scenery is very enjoyable and relax. You can watch the whales "jumping" around on the sea, feel the nature of the forest, enjoying the big snow crabs and lobsters...More
Most of Hoonah will be missed unless you go to town. The nature ride is mildly interesting, but stories get told from a too esoteric point of view. There are a few nuggets here, but you have to look hard.
We stopped here with our cruise cause my partner wanted to take the zipline, it is a quaint small town of only 700 ppl good seafood place we also took a whale watching tour and managed to see a hump back jumping out of the...More

I do not know, but I would suggest you call or email Icy Strait Point directly and have that conversation -- their contact info is on their website. We did not go on a bear-watching excursion while we were there for part of a day -- we took a whale-watching excursion booked through the cruise line but was operated by Icy Strait Point. A wonderful thing about Icy Strait Point is that it is Alaska Native owned and operated -- we wished we could have spent more time there as it was one of our favorite Alaska stops! We loved that whale-watching trip more than any others we've been on.
Also, I'd recommend you plan some time to walk through the complex of old cannery buildings that now house restaurants and shops (I found some great Native Tlingit stuff there).

While we have not taken a combo tour like that, I just looked on the website for Icy Strait Point and they have something called a "Whale, Wildlife & Bear Search Combo" tour listed on their website right underneath the "Whale & Marine Mammals Cruise" that is listed first! TA won't let me put the URL for that page here, but go to the homepage for Icy Strait Point and then click on the "View Tours Now" in the box for "100% Guaranteed Whale Watching Cruise" and scroll down for the description of that combo.
I'd contact Icy Strait Point by phone or on the "contact" form to ask questions, etc.
