Had a wonderful experience with Beth our tour guide. She has a wealth of knowledge having lived there since the early '90's. Got a great tour of the area meeting many local residents. This was one of the highlights of our trip.

Hi. I will be arriving in Skagway port August 3rd with Princess Cruise Lines. I'm interested in your photography workshop, but it would only be me (my husband and teenage daughter have other interests). Do you book singles? Sincerely, Pamela Wagner

Greeting from Haines! Our Skagway Photography tour is sold directly through Princess. They accept single bookings for the tour. The tour is 3 hours and stays in Skagway, either going to the White Pass Summit or Dyea. Our... More
Hi, I am interested in a 2 part tour if possible. Our ship, Coral Princess, will dock in Skagway June 20th, 2017 at 7 am. I am interested in Haines photography tour combined with either the kayak tour or the float trip through the eagle preserve.Is that possible? Also when booking on line I noticed that the tours offered start at 7:15 am. This is fine but if we are scheduled to arrive at 7 am will we be able to make that tour time?
