Whale Watching & Nature Tours

IMG 0016

Conventional wisdom is that Point Adolphus and the surrounding waters of Icy Strait are by far the pre-eminent destination for observation of the acrobatically inclined Humpback Whale. Orca (the Killer Whale), Dall's porpoise, the Stellar sea lion, and an abundance of sea and shore birds are also present and often seen during these excursions. You may also have opportunity to see the occasional brown bear foraging along the surrounding beaches.

Our Marine Nature Tours tend to focus more on near-shore and shoreline wildlife and the various shore and seabirds. The ubiquitous Alaskan brown bear is often seen working the shoreline and the mouths of freshwater streams during these excursions. Good optics (binoculars, camera, etc.) are recommended equipment.


Tok River Outfitters offers three-hour excursions for saltwater fishing or whale watching in the waters of Icy Strait, long renowned for it’s abundance of marine wildlife and excellent saltwater fishing opportunities.
