Steve and his staff are quite the characters and give you a great learning experience. Make reservations before you leave home as they keep the crowd small and intimate

Amazing place to visit was one of the highlights of our trip! We were traveling with two girls ages 11 and 7 and they loved the animals!!! It was also wonderful to see how passionate the owners spoke about the animals!

Actually, you can put a carrot in your mouth and stick your face toward the moose who will then grab the carrot from your mouth, and possibly leave you with a nice wet nose from bumping his nose. Lots of interesting stories about the animals,...More

Yes there was a tour available from the dock at Haines from Holland American. However it left in the afternoon and I wanted to to visit Kroschel's in the morning. Made my own arrangements to rent a car.
