Meet your guide at Icy Strait Point and get equipped with provided binoculars, rain jackets, and high-quality spotting scopes.
When ready, your guide takes you along the shore of Port Frederick to observe seabirds feeding in the nutrient rich waters. Scope the area around the ferry terminal for pigeon guillemots and other gulls, ducks and seabirds. Stop to see an active bald eagle’s nest before taking the road to the Long Island causeway, where you might spot eagles, ducks, cormorants, crows, ravens, and shorebirds.
Follow your guide down a trail that runs through a combination of forest and grassland where you might see warblers, sparrows, woodpeckers, sapsuckers, flycatchers, jays, wrens, kinglets, hummingbirds, swallows, swifts, chickadees, creepers, and thrushes.
You'll hear informative commentary about the birds and the Alaskan wilderness from your guide throughout the tour. After three hours, your tour ends with return to Icy Strait Point, which is located near Hoonah, a Tlingit (native Alaskan) village.
