Tad was an excellent driver and spotted many whales. We were able to get close enough to get great photos!

Fay/Faye took us to all three sites, explained a lot, and drove well. Top- notch all around and a good sampling of Sitka.

We were looking for a tour that stopped at both the Fortress of the Bears and the Raptor Center. Being in animal rescue, we loved both of them. Both locations had a guide. We were on our own at the totem park which left us wandering around. We would have preferred more time with the bears and raptors.

Lots of time to watch bears play. Raptor center best part of excursion. Saw lots of bald eagles and owls that had been injured and now being taken care of there. Visited Indian River where salmon were spawning. Unbelievable how many there were!
