“Whale watching at Hoonah, AK”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

We were very pleasantly engaged with this experience with the services offered by Hoonah Travel Adventures. We had truly personalized service with our small craft ship captain. We were fortunate to be the only couple aboard at the time. We were there in Sept. 2011, shortly after this service had opened. We had decent weather and found several whales in a short time. One even breached, or came out of the water in a sensational leap. On our way back to our final dock, we also were swarmed by a school of porpoises which circled our boat enthusiastically. It was an added attraction we hadn't expected. Our guide lived in Hoonah, and filled us in on the local "color" with interesting insider information. Overall, this was one of the true high lights of our total cruise.

Visited September 2011

Ed - We were so glad to hear you had a great time on the cruise with Captain Paul! We hope the rest of your time in Alaska was just as exciting. Come back and see us again!
