Experience the best of Icy Strait Point on a tour that takes you from sea to sky, plus whale watching. As soon as you arrive, be swept away on a small group whale watching excursion to the Point Adolphus area, which hosts one of Alaska’s largest resident whale populations. The 24-passenger vessel sits low in the water, putting you eye to eye with whales, sea lions, and harbor seals that make their home in these protected waters. Be sure to keep a look out for eagles that soar high above and brown bears along the coastline. We guarantee you will see at least one whale or you receive a $100 cash refund as you disembark.
Then, enjoy a scenic drive through Hoonah, the largest Tlingit village in the world, on your way 1330’ up the mountainside to begin your ZipRider adventure. Take in the spectacular views of Icy Strait and distant Glacier Bay before flying back to sea level over the rainforest below at speeds exceeding 60 mph. Up to six people can descend simultaneously, making this a great group activity! This amazing adrenaline-fueled zip-ride ends with a gentle touchdown at the Drop Zone at Icy Strait Point. Toast your adventure with a drink at the Duck Point bar before returning to your ship, options include locally brewed Cannery Red Ale, wine, soda, water or our famous Zipper Drop Shot.
