Overview

Experience the best of Icy Strait Point on a 4.5-hour tour that includes a whale-watching cruise and the ZipRider on Mt Hoonah. Go whale-watching in Point Adolphus, where one of the largest concentrations of humpback whales in Alaska shelter in the waters near Glacier Bay National Park. Then take to the skies as you zip over the rain forest of Mt Hoonah on an adrenaline-fueled ride that ends at the beach at Icy Strait Point.
  • 4.5-hour whale-watching and ZipRider experience at Icy Strait Point
  • More intimate whale-watching cruise on a 24-passenger boat
  • See humpback whales and learn about Alaska's wildlife from the onboard naturalist
  • Look for sea lions, harbor seals, eagles, and brown bears
  • Pass through Hoonah, the world's largest Tlingit village
  • ZipRide down the mountain with five other riders
  • Take in views of Icy Strait, Port Frederick, and Glacier Bay National Park while on the ZipRider

Board your 24-passenger boat from the Adventure Center at Icy Strait Point to begin your whale-watching tour.

Head out on the waters of Point Adolphus, which hosts one of Alaska’s largest resident humpback whale populations, along with sea lions, and harbor seals that live in these protected waters. Keep an eye out for eagles and brown bears along the coast, and learn about the wildlife from the guide as you take in the spectacular scenery.

After the whale-watching cruise, take a scenic drive through Hoonah on the way up the 1550-foot (472-meter) high Hoonah Mountain. Your guide gets you outfitted in safety gear for the ZipRider and provides a safety briefing.

When ready, your guide secures your ZipRider harness to the cable so that you can fly downhill at speeds that reach 60 miles per hour (97 km/hr). Six riders launch together on side-by-side lines that hover 300 feet above the rain forest. Take in spectacular views of Icy Strait, Hoonah, Port Frederick, and, on clear days, the distant mountain peaks of Glacier Bay National Park. At the end of the thrilling ride, you'll land gently on the beach at Icy Strait Point where your tour ends.
