Haines
Photography Tour Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

Loved this tour with an experienced photographer who lives half the year in the quaint little town of Haines. He took us around to some great spots and shared tips on lighting and setting for our shots. We wandered afterwards in Haines and enjoyed terrific hospitality, some good eats, and local crafts. Adorable town... loved it.

Mendenhall Glacier Rating: Not Rated

We actually took the Rainforest Trails and Whales expedition with a hike through the rainforest, a veiw of Mendenhall Glacier, and then a whale-watching adventure. Our guides were so professional and knowledgeable about the area. We were able to see quite a bit including a small iceberg flip out at the glacier, and several families of humpback whales and orcas. There were eagles, seals, and gorgeous scenery. They cannot guarantee whale sightings, but mid-June seemed the right time to see it all.

Port Rating: Not Rated

Ketchikan is a darling town with shops, eateries, a few churches, and a couple of local watering holes. We stopped into the Arctic Bar near the port and had a great afternoon following our wanderings of the morning. And don't miss Ketchikandies - great chocolate!!
