    What to Expect
    After arriving to Hoonah, AK on your cruise ship you will get off the ship and walk through the Welcome Center building. From there walk down the gravel path to the "excursions hub" this will be about a 10 min walk. Maraiya will be there waiting with a sign that says "Hoonah Whale Tours" Once the whole group has met in the excursions hub, you will be driven into town to meet Captain Joardan at the boat. Once on the boat you will drive out into Icy Strait and look for all sorts of Southeast AK wildlife. There will be homemade blueberry muffins, granola bars, chips, and beverages as well. Captain Joardan grew up in Juneau, AK and spent his summers in Hoonah, AK. You can learn all about the alaskan way of life while enjoying the beautiful scenery and watching the whales.
