Tour Itinerary

1. Trip Planning

If you’re like most filmmakers or photographers you likely have a very specific shot list or objective. Here at Alaska Charters and Adventures, we believe in planning. Before your Photography Tour, we will talk with you one-to-one to understand your expectations and goals. Together we can organize a plan to achieve the shots you want!

2. On The Hunt

Whether it’s majestic glaciers, seals dosing on icebergs, whales feeding, or bears catching salmon, we will do our best to get you in the action. This is where a dedicated photography excursion separates itself from the average run-of-the-mill tour. You can take the extra time to change a lens or set up for a different perspective. You won’t be rushed by an antsy group. We’ll be working with you the whole time to achieve optimal lighting.

3. In The Moment

Stand motionless with your camera, ready as the sun comes through the towering rainforest, to snap the perfect sunrise picture. Capture an eagle as it expertly extracts a salmon from the river. Whatever your hopes are for an Alaskan wilderness setting, let us take you there. We have decades of experience working alongside filmmakers and photographers. We consider ourselves specialists in the art of safely getting you in front of the subjects you seek.

What’s Different About Alaska Charters And Adventures

Small Groups: While we have the capability to accommodate larger groups, we feel that wildlife viewing and photography along with real wilderness surroundings are best experienced by very small groups. Being part of a large tour group doesn’t lend itself to the up-close and personal experience we strive to provide our guests. You can expect us to recognize your individual interests, limitations, and expectations.

Training and Experience: Our mission is to provide you with the highest quality professional guides and captains. We can offer you Wrangell’s only state-certified guides, National certified interpretive guides, certified naturalist, and Alaska cultural host. At Alaska Charters and Adventures, we will provide you high-quality guides and captains. No matter which tour you book, you will follow a trained, mature and professional guide with many years of experience.

Trip Length: Alaska Charters and Adventures is unique in that we prefer to offer you full day excursions customized for your interests and abilities. This means you can linger for that perfect photo and enjoy plenty of opportunities to get out and take in the scenery. Why rush? Take time to optimize wildlife viewing and lighting. More time is more opportunity to experience Alaska’s remarkable nature.
