Recommended Posts

Glacier Wind Charters for whale watching in ISP. We went with them in 2018 and plan to go again next summer. Small boats and personal service.

Depends on what kind of activity you're looking for.  Lots of info in the town web sites:



The port is Icy Strait but the town is Hoonah.




There are a few hundred trip reports posted near the top of the forum.  Read thru the reports that included these ports.  You'll get an idea of what people did, and the vendors they used,  to see if they match your interests.

In Icy Strait, we have gone out with Glacier Wind Charters for whale watching.  We have done 7 excursions with them and have an another trip planned for May 2020.  Wonderful well run company with excellent customer service.  Shawn, Teresa and Casey work very hard to ensure you have a great whale watching experience.  Here is their link should you need additional information:  https://www.g-wind.com/

Another vote here for Sitka Wildlife Tours. We took the Premium Sitka Scenic tour in August. We had already been to Sitka before so just wanted to revisit some of our favorites.


Hightly recommend:



I have taken this tour and enjoyed it, seems to me we were longer than 2-1/2 hours by a bit as she dropped people off at different locations for food or something else to do.
