Begin your 5.5-hour wilderness tour when you step aboard a high-speed catamaran for a thrilling marine wildlife cruise to Point Adolphus, just outside Glacier Bay National Park. These nutrient-rich waters support a wide array of marine life, including orca, Steller sea lions, Dall's porpoises, and humpback whales. Whale sightings are guaranteed! Next, enjoy a narrated drive and hear about the Tlingit village of Hoonah from your local guide while en route to the Spasski River. During the beautiful drive through the interior forests and muskegs of Chichagof Island, keep your eyes peeled for wildlife such as Sitka black-tail deer, woodpeckers, bald eagles, and coastal brown bears. Upon arrival at your destination, enjoy a short walk on trails and boardwalks over the muskeg and arrive at three viewing platforms overlooking the river. If the bears happen to be out feeding, you'll have a huge bonus added to an already incredible day.
