If you are tempted to book a whale watching tour through the cruise line, STOP!! I've seen those boats, crowded with people, and only a small viewing platform that you have to fight over. Take my word for it and book with Floyd and Margie!...More

Was thrilled when Notcho showed up, and with the sea lions and otters!! Especially the mom with the baby, and the surprise bear on the beach.

Is there a tour you'd specifically recommend for otters? Is Hoonah a good port for them or would Sitka be a better option? I understand Seward has them plentiful but I was hoping to do a Vancouver round trip cruise. Thank you in advance, Patty

Hoonah (Icy Strait Point) is a great place to see sea otter. This is included in our whale watching/wildlife tour. You can book by going to our website, just click on "website" in the upper right hand corner.
