Approximately 4¼ Hours
This excursion combines two of Sitka's most popular wildlife viewing experiences.
Board a deluxe, water-jet-powered sightseeing vessel and set out to explore the marine wilderness to observe sea otters, whales, Steller sea lions, porpoise, harbor seals, brown bears, black-tail deer, and a variety of marine birds. An onboard naturalist will explain the workings of this remarkable ecosystem as your skilled captain maneuvers the vessel to provide the best possible views.
Returning to Sitka, you will visit the renowned Alaska Raptor Center, where injured birds of prey receive medical treatment. A wildlife interpreter will guide you through the Bald Eagle Flight Building, and you will meet some of the birds perched in outdoor habitats. Browse in the gift area and bird exhibit tables before returning by motorcoach to the pier.
The tour operator guarantees your group will see an otter, a whale or a bear. If not, you'll receive a $100 cash refund as you disembark the vessel. Dress warmly in layers with a wind- and waterproof outer layer; bring gloves, a scarf and a warm hat.
