This trip was well worth the effort. One of the best shore excursions I've been on. The guide, Rustin (I hope that's the correct spelling!) drove the bus and piloted the boat. He was very entertaining and tried very hard to find us some moose or bears. However, since this is the

The tour guide was really friendly and knowledgeable of the area and wildlife. The boat ride was fun and the scenery was amazing. We were able to see eagles and salmon but nothing else. We were hoping to see moose or bears but there weren’t any that day. I guess it depends on

Jeffrey Y, We are sorry you didn't get to see wildlife. As you know we are in a natural wildlife habitat and there are times we don't get the opportunity to see them.

We had a long day tour , bus rides and a ferry to Haines and it’s worth the effort. Nature at its best we saw eagles taking food to it’s nest, a Moose and a bear with its cub. All this in a jet boat with an Experienced licensed captain from Culebra Puerto Rico.
