(Tracy Doss / 2011 Princess Cruise) The tour was great. The jet boat guides do their best to find wildlife. They know all the hiding spots. We saw eagles, mountain goats, and a moose. They also provide all the warm weather gear needed to ensure that you don’t get cold.


(Adelia Brannen / 2011 Princess Cruise) Sierra was a terrific boat captain / tour guide! Enjoyable tour! Saw moose, trumpeter swans and eagles.

Just a quick note to let you know what a fabulous time we had on your tour September 4th. The veg chili rocked! And the dogs over the fire were delish! But the trip itself was made so much more wonderful because of our guide/captain, Sean. He was as enthralled with the river and all it had to offer as we were. His extension up-river “to explore” was well worth it. You guys live in heaven and we can’t thank you enough for sharing it with us.

Thank you, thank you,

See you again soon ( we hope)

My wife and I were in Alaska last year on the Norwegian Cruise Line. We chose your bald eagle preserve wildlife quest. It was one of our best trips. We enjoyed cooking our own hot dogs. All your food was great. We love wildlife and your boat trip was great. We saw a moose, eagles and geese. Our boat captain made our trip very enjoyable. Our bus ride to your place took us thru beautiful country, my wife saw a small bear on the way. Also, our Native American bus driver was very informative.

Thank you for providing a very good and pleasant experience.

I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful day I had on the Chilkat river. I saw many bald eagles and nests.. I moose that was spotted.. but I think what I walked away with is the love of the wilderness in the raw. It was so amazing.. so beautiful. And our guide Sierra.. the way she spoke.. you could tell she loved her job and she loved all the animals and respected them very much. It was cold and they supplied us with more jackets and gloves and blankets for the ride.. I didnt mind the cold at all.. When we got back to the camp.. we got to roast our own hot dog over an open fire.. brought back so many memories of home where im from in Northern Calif. memories of my dad and brothers and sisters and us roasting our hot dogs over a fire.. and the veggie chili was outstanding.. Duck and Karen and their staff made us all feel like we were at home.. Some of the nicest people ive met on my vacation.. I recommend to anyone to take this cruise.. the beauty alone will have you in awe. My husband and I got to talk with Karen on our trip back to the dock.. she is the person ive met in Alaska.. you can tell they care about people and the animals that live there on their land.. wonderful wonderful adventure.. I would do it again. Thanks for the wonderful experience.
