You will meet your expert naturalist Haines wildlife and nature sightseeing excursion guide right at the end of the cruise pier and set out along the Lutak Inlet on a drive to Chilkoot Lake State Park. The drive is very scenic: on one side, you have glacier-clad mountains scraping the sky, splashes of colorful wildflowers along the road. On the other side, you have the Lutak Inlet, which is home to many types of marine life.

This park has it all: a turquoise lake surrounded by snowy mountain peaks, a salmon-filled river flowing into the sea, and important Tlingit cultural sites. Bald eagles, harbor seals, and brown bears are often seen here. In May, June and July, the wildflowers are at their peak and eagles are busy caring for their young on the nest. Beginning in late July, the river fills with migrating salmon, while brown bears come down to the rivers edge to feed. As the number of salmon in the river increases, the likelihood of seeing bears down along the river increases, with a good probability of bear sightings from early August through late September.

As you drive through the park, your sightseeing shore excursion guide knows the best places to stop for scenery and the possibility of wildlife spotting. Your guide is equipped with a powerful spotting scope to bring the wildlife in close, and will help interpret the behavior of the local various animals and explain how the animals fit into the Chilkoots complex ecosystem. Make sure you bring your camera to take advantage of the numerous photo opportunities. During the cruise excursion, your nature and wildlife sightseeing guide will find a nice location to enjoy your complimentary box lunch.

From here, you will return to downtown Haines along the scenic inlet road. Although wildlife sightings cannot be guaranteed, keep your eyes open as some animals can be spotted along the road and marine life in the nearby inlet.

     5/5 Visited in July 2017

It was just so beautiful to come across so much wildlife in natural environment and enjoy nature. It's a refreshing experience, to beautiful to describe with words. We will be coming for a second visit in August. Deb was our guide, we hope to get her as a guide again. The amount of wildlife we saw was great!

Me and my family took the Golden Princess cruise ship last year to go to Alaska. We thought this was the perfect excursion for us to enjoy our day in Haines, our guide did his best to takes us where the last bear sightings have occurred. We all were mesmerized when a momma bear and her cub were spotted, took several pictures so we could treasure such a beautiful moment. Thank you Jimmy for this amazing excursion!
