The jet boat ride was a blast. The guide/Captain was very knowledgeable and friendly. We saw plenty of wildlife and gorgeous scenery all around. We highly recommend the trip.

We wanted to learn more about the native peoples of southeastern Alaska so signed up for a Heritage tour through our cruise ship. Brooke was our guide and was very knowledgeable and informative about the Tlingit and Haida culture. Very interesting.

Thank you for the kind words. Our RV park is small and quiet. Spartan by down south standards but does provide all of the necessary services, water, sewer and electricity and very good wi-fi. And - it is close to town!

Thank you for the kind words. We work hard to learn the biology of bears and the natural flora and fauna in SE Alaska. We put a lot of effort in training our guides. I'm pleased to hear that our team served you well!

I can see why the guides are so upbeat -- just being around AnAn is uplifting. The owner LOVES bears -- he relates to them from great childhood experiences. I feel so privileged to be able to spend the day there.
