We were happily surprised by this tour. My husband is a serious birder and was worried this would just be quick look at bald eagles (which we had already seen dozens of on our own) designed for tourists. We instead had a very knowledgeable, serious birder who took us to several local birding hot spots and made the tour accessible to beginners and more advanced birders. She could answer all of my husband's very detailed questions which is no easy feat. As a bonus, we were taken into the same areas the bear watching tours were going so we had the chance to look for more than just birds (none seen,though). Amy was great and I would recommend her tour to anyone with an interest in birds.
This was the first time we have seen a bird watching option listed on a cruise and we are so glad we signed up for it.Keith and I have great memories of this birding trip. Your knowledge not only of the birds (which was excellent) but also of the trees and flora in the area was a bonus. And I loved picking blueberries along the way. Our friends have enjoyed hearing about how our birding trip involved you loading your pistol in case of bears on the trail we were going to be walking. That was definitely a first! And we were so lucky to actually see a bear at a pond in the distance while you were driving us.
Everyone who gets to hear about our AK trip gets to hear how much we enjoyed meeting you and your bird watching tour.
Thank you for sharing your passion & expertise on birding & nature. I had a fantastic time; my time with you was so much fun & I learned so much. Enjoying berries in the wild was not something I was expecting, but OMG were they good! That day was the most memorable one of my entire trip. I could have spent several more hours wandering around, just enjoying the great outdoors. You are so fortunate to be able to enjoy this every day ... If you are ever down this way, please let me know. DIng Darling on Sanibel Island, or Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary would be a treat with you! ....Maybe an alligator crossing the road, but probably not a bear! What a great day!!! Thank you so much!!!
I really enjoyed our day in Hoonah. That part of the world is still so fresh, and your bird knowledge phenomenal.
