This was a fun tour with great opportunities for the wildlife photographer! The host is very entertaining and the entire place is set up to get great photos of the animals without fences getting in the way. My sister was not looking forward to another wildlife refuge excursion, but she had just as much fun as I did and afterward said she was really glad I picked this tour! We highly recommend it!

We went by ferry from Skagway to Haines, where we boarded a bus for a wildlife tour. During the tour we saw bears, eagles, seals, and lots of salmon. We really enjoyed it.

I wish I could give the Kroschel Wildlife Center excursion 10 stars instead of just 5. This was our best and favorite excursion. This is NOT a zoo. The animals live in their natural habitat and they interact with Steve and Mario along with the visitors. The ride on the ferry from Skagway to Haines and back is breathtaking. This is well worth every penny you pay.

We were broken into groups of 6 so it was very intimate. The local guide was informative and colorful. We saw brown bear, an eagles nest and salmon. Lunch at the cultural center was delicious and they were able to make a separate lunch for me due to food allergies and they didn't complain at all!

Excursion SK03. A VERY STRENUOUS tour. Climb up the side of the mountain 350+ ft.through very narrow walkways and then down another 350+ft. Not recommended for seniors.

We went to the Discovery-endorsed Kroeschel Wildlife refuge. The refuge itself was very fun and interesting. You see lots of cool animals and even get to pet some of them. The issue is getting there. It's 2 HOURS away. So first you get on a ferry to the town of Haines, which isn't so bad, but then when you get to Haines it's another HOUR on a SCHOOL BUS on bumpy roads, then AFTER you spend like 2 hours at the refuge, it's 2 more hours of this nonsense to get back to the ship. Is it worth it? There were animals you would never see, and would never see that close up... but it's up to you whether it's worth it.

Steve Kroshel's park was beyond amazingly cool. Intense amount of animal interaction for guests!

A boat ride to Haines and Davidson Glacier. Whales & Eagles along the way. A stop for a picnic lunch then a bus ride to the canoes. After a short paddle the motor went in the water for the rest of the ride to the Glacier. The we walked out to see the Glacier. A really nice day

We rode the water taxi (catamaran) down to Haines, which was an interesting experience in itself. Along the way we saw a whale do a full breach (completely out of the water), but it happened only once so no one got a picture. ("Nuts!") Buses were waiting at the pier in Haines so there is only a minimum of walking for those with mobility problems. Saw Harbor Seals, numerous bald eagles, and some bears, along with pink salmon jumping out of the water at Chilkoot Lake. Although the bear viewing wasn't optimum (i.e. They weren't standing in the middle of the river pulling salmon out with their great timing. Rather, they were lazy bears who were standing at the weir and picking the salmon off as they got hung-up. Oh well, who are we to judge?), bears are bears and are impressive creatures no matter how you see them. We were delighted at the spectacle.

Did the Glacier Point Wilderness Safari. Got to do a little of everything (boating, hiking, glacier watching, etc), which was nice.

It was really nice to see the animals up close. We got to touch caribou antlers, get kissed by a moose, etc. Nice boxed lunch at the end. I was concerned about walking up the steel hill w/ a bad knee, but it went slow so it wasn't a problem.
