Upon arriving in Haines, you will be met by a friendly, local guide who will transport you to Kroschel's Wildlife Center via the Haines Highway (a National Scenic Byway) and through the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve. Stunning views of snow-capped mountains and beautiful wildflowers await your viewing. Keep an eye open for moose, bear, swans and bald eagles who inhabit this area. Your diver will make stops for photo ops along the way.

Haines, Alaska is fortunate to be home to this unique refuge, Kroschel's Wildlife Center. Independent filmmaker and naturalist Steve Kroschel founded this park as a place for abandoned and orphaned animals. Here they are taken in and lovingly cared for by a dedicated staff who will share their knowledge about each animal and its place in our fragile eco-system.

Usually tours to the park are done in a large group setting. This private tour affords the rare opportunity for you and your family or group to interact with a wide variety of animals very up close and personal. Lynx, moose, grizzly bear, wolves, fox, weasels and reindeer are just a few of the animals you will see, hold, pet or feed. You can even choose to spend more time with your favorite. Keep your camera ready to capture this very special experience.

After enjoying the Wildlife Center for at least 1 and a half hours, it's time to head back to Skagway. Your driver will provide a picnic lunch as you make your way back to the ferry pier.

Everyone in the family from kids through grandparents, will thoroughly enjoy this tour from beginning to end.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
