Chilkoot Wilderness and Wildlife Viewing - Haines Departure

Select Date and Travellers
USD 127.00

    What to Expect
    After morning pickup at the cruise port, your guide drives you through Chilkoot Lake State Park to several scenic locations.

    Look through the powerful spotting scope for the possibility of seeing wildlife such as bald eagles, harbor seals, and brown bears. Your guide explains how the animals fit into the Chikoot’s complex ecosystem and shares insights about their behavior.

    Depending on the time of year that you visit, you are more likely to see different animals. In May, June and July, eagles care for their young in the nest and wildflower blooms peak. Migrating salmon arrive towards the end of July, filling the river and enticing brown bears to the water to feed. From early August through late September, bears are frequently spotted.

    The tour includes lunch and bottled water, and concludes at the end of three hours with return to your starting point.

    Cindy was our guide and photography coach. She did an excellent job helping all levels on us photographers get the type of shots we were looking for. Never saw a bear, but lots of beautiful eagles and nature in general.

    What a great experience we had on this tour. I booked this instead of taking one from our cruise ship. Our ship docked in Haines. It was a very short & easy walk to the meeting point. Our group size was about 12-14 which was great. So was our guide, Jen. We saw bears

    We had Jen as our guide and she was great. Very knowledgeable and good sense of humor. The scenery is breathtaking. We saw lots of eagles close up. We just missed the bears. (As we were driving up they were walking away) But the lake is beautiful and we are so glad that we
