Alaska ATV Tours provides guided tours on Kruzof Island near Sitka Alaska....

Alaska ATV Tours provides guided tours on Kruzof Island near Sitka Alaska. These all inclusive tours begin in Sitka where we will pick you up at your desired location and transport you to the boat. You can watch for Wildlife along the shoreline and in the waters as you pass through islands and channels on the 30 minute boat ride from Sitka to Kruzof Island. When you arrive at the island your guide will give you instructions on operating the Yamaha Rhino OHV and safety equipment. Then it's off to enjoy the scenery and look for wildlife. Along the way your guide will stop and share information and stories about the area. There are 2 different tour products that are available to choose from. First is the Grizzly Meadows 4X4 Adventure. This tour is 3.5 hours with 2 hours riding on the island. This excursion includes stops in the forest and at Iris meadows estuary where you can watch for Coastal Brown Bears and Sitka Blacktail Deer. In summer(approximately mid June to mid August) there are beautiful meadows filled with Purple Iris and Alaska Cotton. The second option is the 4X4 Wilderness Adventure a 4.5 hour excursion that goes to both Iris Meadows and North Beach. Please be aware that there is construction planned on the trail to north beach during summer of 2013 so the 4.5 hour trip may or may not be available when you want to go. The restroom facilities available on the island are an outhouse and an portable environmental toilet. This tour is remote and requires riding on rough trails and sometimes the water gets choppy so guests should expect some bumps and jolts. Light snacks and refreshments are provided however if you have special dietary needs please either bring you own or give us prior notice so we can accommodate you. These excursions take you to some of the most beautiful places in the Sitka area quickly and effortlessly. These excursions are an opportunity to enjoy the natural beauty and wildlife of Alaska in a neatly packaged excursion.

Went as part of a cruise excursion. Nick was a great guide with insights on local flora, fishing, geology, etc. Wonderful view of iris meadows with salmon running and bear tracks everywhere. On the trip back from the island saw a humpback whale as a bonus.

It was an incredibly fun adventure for our family, especially our 8 year old; he absolutely loved it. He was nervous at the beginning, but after 5 minutes he was shouting "Faster Dad, faster!" We didn't see any real wild life, but wild life doesn't work like predictable bankers hours. The scenery was wonderful and the guides were a lot... More

While we saw no bears we saw the evidence everywhere. Bear scat every 50' in the roadway. Mama and Cubs tracks all over the beach. Included a nice... More

We enjoyed getting to know them and hearing about the various adventures they had experienced themselves around the area. The ATV ride itself was a lot of fun and we saw some breath-taking... More

My husband and I signed up for the Sitka 4X4 Nature Safari through our cruise line. We were met right at the cruise dock and transported to another dock a short distance away where we took about a 25-minute boat ride to the island where we did our ATV'ing. The boat had a bow that dropped down, which made getting... More

Although the weather didn't cooperate (really cold, windy and rainy), we had a fun adventure. The tour guides did a great job of taking us across the island, and stopping to see the various wildlife and scenic areas. I am sure that it would have been even better with nicer weather, but we had a good time anyway.
