We are an Alaskan family-owned and operated guiding business since 1989 with experience ranging from service in the U.S. Coast Guard, commercial salmon and halibut fishing, professional artistry, and the diverse experiences required and obtained while living in remote, rural Alaska. We specialize in small group nature tours offering whale watching, bear viewing, glacier touring, fresh and saltwater fishing charters, and running one of Alaska’s wildest rivers. We are experienced and knowledgeable guides with over 130 years of combined experience in Alaska.
