If you want the absolute BEST whale watching trip ever with two of the nicest people around you MUST select Hoonah Whale Tours!

Icy Strait Whale Adventures
#3 of 19 Tours in Hoonah
... crowding on outside decks that favor the tallest watchers, his windows lift inside and you are at waters edge inside the cabin, with zero obstructions...... it is a marvel for whale tours everywhere....loved it!
Because they stay in touch with other whale watch tours, they were able to quickly get us to their first Orca sighting of their summer.

Hoonah Travel Adventures
#4 of 19 Tours in Hoonah
... by Hoonah travel adventures as this was a small group size, staff were friendly and you had lots of opportunity for photos without lots of people getting in the way, definitely recommended over big boat tours.
Incredible tour, impeccable service and my only choice in tours when in Hoonah.

Hoonah Whale Tours
#6 of 19 Tours in Hoonah
Being in Alaska all the whale watching tours guaranteed you will see whales, you can even spot them from your cruise ship and sometimes from shore.
Hoonah Whale Tours did a wonderful job, and all I can say is, book with them, and get your reservation in as quickly as you can!

Glacier Wind Charters
#1 of 19 Tours in Hoonah
Our two skippers gave us great tours (provided binoculars if we needed them) and we saw many humpbacks, lots of sea otters (with their babies on their chests), sea lions, and even brown bears on the shoreline.
(and I have done MANY whale watching tours - in Australia, Iceland, Maine, Massachusetts, Puerto Vallarta, and Hawaii).

Most other tours would only allow groups to book.
We booked a 3.5 hr fishing tour with Chris during a cruise stop at Icy Strait Point.
Icy Strait Point ZipRider
#5 of 19 Tours in Hoonah
The building is awesome, the tours are well run and everybody seemed to work really hard at maximizing your enjoyment.
A little bonus is the bus driver who takes you up to the top gives you a tour of Hoonah, talks about the history, points out some key buildings, an eagle's nest, the airport, while getting some fantastic scenary.
Icy Strait Point
#7 of 19 Tours in Hoonah
At the Icy Strait Point Museum, my guide, Jeff Kjeldsen, gave one of the most interesting, informative tours of authentic Alaskan lifestyle and enormous insight into the coastal rainforest.
All of the locals were incredibly friendly, we loved the native show, the shops are low key, and there are plenty of things to do that are definitely must do activities for Alaska - kayaking, whale tours, bears, f...

... different fish we caught, while on the tour, we also saw several Sea Otters and a huge humpback whale which was feeding less than 40 yards from our little boat, much closer than any of the whale tours we went on.
Misty Bay Lodge Whalewatching
#9 of 19 Tours in Hoonah
We booked a whale watching tour with Misty Bay tours instead of going with a Royal Caribbean excursion at the suggestion of a fellow TripAdvisor member.
Nice small crowd which is way better than the crowded cruise ship tours.
Icy Strait Point - Whale & Marine Mammals Cruise
#10 of 19 Tours in Hoonah
The tour description talks about a “wide array of marine life including orca, Steller's sea lions, seal, Dall's porpoise and of course the magnificent humpback whale.”
During our tour we saw humpback whales, and a pod of 3-4 Orcas that swam right near the boat.
Hooked Adventures

We were originally going to book through our cruise ship, but after learning the ship's tours are on boats with 25-50 other people, we were thrilled to find that we would have a private tour with Captain Herm and...
We took the whale watching tour with Hooked Adventures, it was just great and we spent a wonderfull time!.

Wooshkeetaan Tours
#14 of 19 Tours in Hoonah
We had such a great visit and participated in nearly any outdoor activity imaginable, but, without doubt, charter fishing with Wooshkeetaan Tours was the highlight of our trip.
Following this incredible "appetizer" our tour became even more exciting when our daughter caught a 52 lb halibut.
Icy Strait Birding Tours
#15 of 19 Tours in Hoonah
It was our first time in a stop to Icy Strait Point and it was a great day out, made even better thanks to everything we learned and saw on Icy Strait Birding Tours.
Guide Amy provided a friendly, relaxed, and local tour that was the highlight of all of our cruise ship shore excursions throughout Alaska.
