Customer Testimonials

I booked the 8 hour Wildlife Tour for July 1st for 5 people. Steven looked after the tour himself, arrived on time and delivered an excellent tour. All 5 of us are wildlife photographers and we were not disappointed. Our tour stopped at several spots where we saw Moose including a first year calf, Bald Eagles, Dall Sheep and Arctic Terns feeding the babies. We also stopped at a great BBQ Restaurant for lunch at his recommendation and the food was amazing. The van provided had more than enough room for us 5 even considering we were all carrying cameras with fairly large lenses plus gear bags. The feedback from the other 4 participants was positive and I would highly recommend booking with Steven.
Spent a full 8 hours with Steve hunting out wildlife for our photography pleasure. Steve was a great guide - knowledgeable, friendly, and willing to go the extra mile... We actually had 2 moose sightings - firstly a young male that posed for us for about 20 minutes roadside, then we found the HUGE 9 point Bull Moose which posed for us again about 15 minutes, then just down the road there was a Cow and and Calf. We were so pleased as these animals can be quite difficult to spot during this time of year due to heavy foliage. Thoroughly enjoyable and educational day with some fabulous photographic memories to take home with us. Thank you Steve for such a wonderful experience.
My tour guide, Bill, was friendly and knowledgeable. The cruise on the Prince William Sound was breathtaking and very worth it!
