We booked this through our cruise ship. It was a cool rainy afternoon when we left the dock. Not a problem as the main deck was enclosed. There was also an open upper deck and 2 smaller covered areas on the main deck. On the...More

The tour was well organized for the most part. Spent too much time at the Fortress of the Bears, and too little with the raptors. Then, on the boat - the narrator was very boring and actually talked too much, in my opinion. We spent...More

I highly recommend this tour to anyone who visits Sitka. The captain and crew went above and beyond to locate wildlife. They did not disappoint. We saw sea otters, humpback whales, sea lions and eagles. The bears must have been busy that day eating salmon....More

We took the 'sea otters, raptors and bears, oh my' trip as a 5 hour excursion from our cruise ship. The Raptor Centre and Fortess of the Bears obviously give you a good opportunity to see rescued animals in captivity. The bears are hilarious and...More
