    Cruise into waters teeming with humpback whales and other marine life, and then dine on traditional Alaskan dishes at a seafood feast. Point Adolphus has the highest concentration of humpback whales in the Alaskan panhandle, so be on the lookout for these majestic and intelligent creatures. They will be breaching the water’s surface, waving their flukes up and down as they dive, and feeding voraciously to fatten up for their winter migration south. You might also observe frolicking Dall’s porpoises, Stellar Sea Lions, curious Harbor Seals and Orca whales, which sometimes feed on infirm or wounded humpbacks. Be sure to look skyward for majestic bald eagles, too. Following the whale-watching adventure, you too will have the opportunity to feast. A sumptuous meal of classic Alaskan dishes awaits you back in Hoonah. The menu will include seasonal shrimp and crabs, Andouille sausage and all sorts of sides. Afterwards, you can roast marshmallows around the campfire.

    Venture into the pristine wilds to look for iconic Alaskan animals such as humpback whales and grizzly bears in their natural habitats. Your adventure will begin aboard a whale-watching boat accompanied by a naturalist that will describe the creatures that you may soon observe. The nutrient-rich waters here are teeming with humpback whales that come to feed each summer before heading south to their breeding grounds. What a sight to watch these behemoths, which grow to about 50 feet long, as they breach the water’s surface and then dive down to feed again. Chances are, you will also catch sight of porpoises, sea lions and seals. After disembarking, you will drive deep into the remote Spasski River Valley to a raised observation platform to look for grizzly bears. They take their name from the gray, grizzled tips of their fur. Bald eagles and Sitka black-tailed deer are also commonly spotted here.

    Seafood Feast - April Only

    Duration 1 hr

    Savor a sumptuous meal of Alaskan favorites while enjoying spectacular views from the waterfront. more...

    OVERVIEW

    Savor a sumptuous meal of Alaskan favorites while enjoying spectacular views from the waterfront. Icy Strait Point was first developed in 1912 around a salmon cannery that operated until the fire of 1944 destroyed nearby Hoonah. The cannery was eventually converted into a support facility for the area’s fishing fleet, which thrives today. All the seafood for your feast will have been located caught in the deep cold waters off Icy Strait Point, so you can be sure that it will be fresh and flavorful. The menu includes shrimp and crab, which depending on the season may be king crab, which is prized for its sweet meat. The seafood is traditionally boiled in Southern seasoning, a preparation that really enhances the flavor. Other specialties include Andouille sausage – which has a sharper, smokier taste and a chunkier texture than most other sausages. For dessert, head for the campfire to roast marshmallows and make s’mores.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    • Feast on a classic Alaskan seafood lunch that includes shrimp and seasonal crab.
    • Enjoy an array of side dishes made with locally sourced ingredients.
    • Roast marshmallows and make s’mores around the campfire.

    OVERVIEW

    Drive through nearby Hoonah in an open-air tram that presents unobstructed views of this former logging town that is also Alaska’s largest Tlingit village. Commentary will describe how centuries ago advancing glaciers forced the Tlingits from Glacier Bay to present-day Hoonah, a word that means “where the wind doesn’t blow.” Another life-changing event occurred in 1944, when a fire broke out destroying much of the village. The federal government helped rebuild the downtown with housing that was supposed to be sent to Hawaii during World War II. These homes are still referred to as war houses. While riding through Hoonah, you will likely see depictions of ravens and eagles on many of the buildings, which represent the two complementary Tlingit social clans. Hoonah lies on the Alaska Marine Highway, a coastal route that ferries travel to give locals easy access to the southeastern part of the state.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    • Ride through Hoonah in an open-air tram and hear commentary that describes the highlights.
    • Learn about momentous events in the history of Hoonah.
    • Gain an understanding of the indigenous Tlingits that have lived in this area for centuries.

    Look for bears, deer and bald eagles in their natural habitats from an elevated observation area in the remote Spasski River Valley. As you leave Hoonah, Alaska’s largest Tlingit Indigenous settlement, the guide will enlighten you with stories about the Tlingits and their fascinating history. Upon reaching the valley, you will walk along a gravel path and boardwalk to the elevated viewing platform. Be on the lookout for the diverse wildlife that makes its home here, including grizzly bears, which are highly intelligent omnivores that primarily eat vegetation. While this is an excellent area to observe animals, they roam freely, so there are no guarantees that you will see them. The Sitka black-tail deer is another native that may be spotted from the observation area, as well as land otters, mink and marten. And don’t forget to look skyward for bald eagles, a highly efficient bird of prey that frequents the valley.
