Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

This interactive wildlife-viewing experience is unlike any other in Alaska. Embark on a close encounter of the wild kind as you visit a wildlife park that will give you an opportunity to see and feel Alaska animals up close and personal. Your tour begins in Skagway as you board a high-speed catamaran. On the cruise along North America's longest and deepest fjord to Haines, you'll witness spectacular views of waterfalls and ice-sculpted peaks. In Haines, towering mountains provide a scenic backdrop as your bus follows the Chilkat River through the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve. Your next stop is Kroschel Wildlife Park, a home for orphaned wild animals that allows you to touch many of the animals, learn their habits and gain an understanding of the time and trust required to train them. A snack will be served on the bus for your journey back to the ferry.

Special Notes:

The trip requires standing for an extended period of time as well as walking a quarter mile on groomed trails, a steep driveway and uneven terrain. Not recommended for guests with limited mobility or breathing problems. Tide conditions can make ramp to dock very steep.

Provided: Roundtrip cruise to Haines
