Best four days I have ever spent in Alaska. Alaska Waters handled all the details in professional manner. AnAn, Le Conte, Stikine River. Do it all!

Alaska Waters RV is clean and quiet with a pleasant atmosphere. The onsite manager was very professional and extremely nice. The owner, Jim Leslie, was also very nice and went above and beyond in helping our family out in a difficult situation.

We took all 3 of Alaska Waters excursions out of Wrangell in the last week of August 2016- The Stikine River Experience, Anan Bear Sanctuary, and the Le Conte Glacier/ Petersburd excursions. I found it an absolute pleasure to work with Alan, who managed to accommodate our dates and schedule. Of the 3 I'd rate the Le Conte excursion first,... More

I ended up doing all of the tours offered by Alaska Waters while I was there. I enjoyed each one of them, but for different reasons. The cultural/city tour was fascinating to learn about the complicated history of Wrangell. Brooke provided a great deal of insight about the history. I then did three tours with James in the boat -... More

Ourselves and another couple, traveling the Inside Passage to 6 ports, over 3 weeks, had booked various tours. The Anan Bear Observatory in Wrangell was a priority and based on TA reviews, we reserved that with Alaska Waters and couldn't be happier that we did. Because Anan is such a unique situation with close proximity to bears, safety, experience and... More

We joined Alaska Waters trip to Anan Creek at the last moment after missing our original trip with a different company, due to a flight delay. Their organization is top-notch from the booking, throughout the trip and until returning to town. The boat was modern and comfortable (including on-boat restroom or 'head'). The crew included a captain and 2 'bear... More

Fun trip. Beautiful scenery. Lots of history and info. The trip up Shakes Slough is better than an E-Ticket ride at Disneyland!

We've been in Alaska 2 1/2 months and this is just about the best tour trip we've taken. We've seen a lot of glaciers, but Le Conte was by far the best. Highly recommend Alaska Waters, very professional and friendly.

Sorry to hear that you thought that our tours were very expensive. I guess what is expensive and what is reasonable is a matter of perspective. We get lots of comments stating that our tours are fairly priced and a great value. More
