We will be arriving on NCL Joy August 21 st 7:00 am. I would love to take your Chichagof Island Brown Bear Search leaving at 7:30 but have concerns that we would miss tour if ship arrives late. Would it be possible for us to take the later tour if the ship was late?
I agree with bowlmeova…… our cruise ship was never late getting into port. Different times of year are better for bear viewing; check local postings for bear sightings. One thing our guide admitted is the dump is the best place to see bears in action :)
Couldn't agree more with Bowlmeova
In my experience after many cruises, ships are not late getting to any port and the Joy is in Hoonah from 7AM to 5 PM. Take the 2nd Chichagof tour that starts at 11AM. However try to make sure that bear sightings will occur. On my trip the area was in a severe drought so salmon could not get into the rivers and creeks so bears stayed in the wooded areas. Hoonah Travel Adventures provides a full refund up to 48 hours before the excursion. Check the most recent reviews of this trip on Trip Advisor to get the most up to date reports of sightings.
