A Wildlife Bonanza in the Fall

If you visit Haines, Alaska during the Fall season, there is simply no better place for wildlife viewing. August and September provide unique opportunities for seeing some of Alaska’s best wildlife, including bald eagles, mountain goats, harbor seals, brown bears, and a variety of coastal birds. The diversity of wildlife habitats in this area draw numerous species here and offer you the optimal destination for a half-day of fun photographing and learning about all of them.  Join your private Alaska guide on a true wildlife “safari” at twilight and get “up close and personal” with Alaska’s furrier residents.

Your cruise excursion adventure begins here...

Day 1

The Chilkoot River has always been a favorite fishing site for the native Tlingit people, and brown bears. At twilight approaches, brown bears leave the cover of the forest to forage along the grassy riverbanks and feed on the abundant salmon in the river

Travel along the Chilkoot Valley as your private vehicle hugs the waterways and allows for stops at numerous points for you to get out and experience the sights, sounds, and scents. Your naturalist will interpret the environment along the way as you enjoy breathtaking photo opportunities. Powerful spotting scopes and binoculars will provide you with close-range views of wildlife such as mountain goats in alpine meads, feeding brown bears along the river, and nesting eagles.
