Haines wildlife and bear search , the high speed boat to Haines was very scenic but no wildlife seen and again the coach trip was scenic but only eagle and birds ducks seen the bear view sight had too many people as did our coach and the fact that the state fair had been held in Haines the weekend prior to our visit making wildlife retreats into the forest. And unlikely to come out for a while ? The pleasant lunch turned out to be anything but ! The drivers and guides were however very good and tried hard as on all our trips , we did leave comments and feedback on the ship where they did refund a small amount to compensate for the lunches however felt this trip was over price given the number on it at $199 each wish we had done the railway trip in hindsight or coach included trip Read Less

I went on the Wildlife Refuge tour where I saw a week old moose and an adult one, a wolf, baby caribou, mink, pine martin, wolverine just to name a few. They were very well taken care of and I'd do it again.

The tour was out of Haines. The ride to Haines was nice but due to the weather it was hard to see out during our boat ride as the windows were fogged up and there was a lot of people on the boat. The tour was not what we were expecting. We did not expect to have to walk through people's backyards to get to the areas we were trying to view animals from. There were several people on the tour with mobility issues and due to the weather and the terrain they were unable to participate in all aspects of the tour. There was some walking over uneven ground and over rocks etc. The lunch that was provided was very good. The small size of the group enabled people to ask lots of questions about the area which was enjoyable. Our tour guide and bus driver were quite willing to answer all questions. Read Less

This tour started with a ferry ride through a nice fjord. Then we boarded a van and drove around the area looking for wildlife. We ended up seeing several bald eagles and ended up very close to a large female brown bear. It's very fortunate we ran into the bear, because without that the tour would have been sorely disappointing but the bear made it quite exciting. Read Less

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 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. Read Less
