Icy Strait Point Fishing + Bear Watching

This Icy Strait Point fishing tour is designed for cruise ship passengers that are looking for an Alaskan excursion that is off the beaten path. We’ll depart Icy Strait Point and drive through the Alaska Native Tlingit village of Hoonah before merging onto old logging roads that will take us to a remote river. During the car ride and along the river it is common to spot wildlife- the island has more brown bears per square mile than almost anywhere else on the planet.

We’ll be fishing a wild “last frontier” type area with little signs of civilization to be found. As we fish and hike along the river, you will be amazed by the surrounding nature. We may even have the chance to watch salmon spawn and pick wild berries.

Depending on the time of year, we’ll fish for Salmon and/or Trout. You will have the choice between fly fishing and spin fishing, and we provide casting lessons for those new to fishing. Going fishing in Hoonah, Alaska is the perfect way to check an activity off your bucket list while at the same time exploring a new place and seeing wildlife.

We often check in with our guests after their cruise to see how the rest of their trip went. Almost every guest tells us that THIS TOUR was the highlight of their whole cruise. Are you ready to NatVenture with us?
