Located at the northern tip of the Inside Passage on America’s longest fjord and nestled beneath the beautiful Chilkat Mountains, is the tiny community of Haines, home to less than 2,000 year-round residents but also the world’s largest concentration of bald eagles. The town of Haines is a wonderful microcosm combining Alaska history, natural beauty, wildlife viewing opportunities, and Alaskan arts and culture.

Haines-based cruise shore excursions include guided nature hikes through rainforests and local forests, kayaking trips to explore glacier-fed lakes, bear viewing, biking along scenic coastal routes, scenic rafting, and scoping for and photographing the many bald eagles which make Haines their habitat.
