    Denali Highway Jeep Excursion

    If you're taking an excursion in Alaska, there are a few things you should probably know about. #1. Polar Bears -- don't hit them (they're hard to see in the snow). #2. You simply MUST ride the Denali Highway. After all, it was named a "Drive of a Lifetime," by National Geographic Traveler Magazine... AND if there was a #3, it would be "Take your camera," but that's a moot point, in the smartphone age. That said, this route is a photographer's paradise. Along the way you'll enjoy views of snow-capped mountains, icy glaciers, and panoramic vistas flanking the Denali Highway. Not to mention all of the wildlife you might come across if you keep your eyes sharp... As driving the Denali Highway is prohibited by most rental vehicle companies, this exclusive excursion provides access to more of Alaska's spectacular scenery and wildlife, and is a great alternative to crowded bus trips. Each Jeep has 4 doors -- perfect for a quick fire drill, even more useful for swapping drivers, and a CB radio for communicating with the guide so stops can be made along the way. Wanna know a little CB sign off? Repeat after us: "Ten-four, good buddy!" Or, if that's not your style you can always keep it short and sweet with, "Roger."

    Summer Sunset Photo Safari

    Anchored down in Anchorage for the summer? Perfect time to capture a few shots of the Midnight Sun! Head out with a professional photographer for some one-on-one photography instruction, and tips on some of the best spots in the vicinity to capture late-day shots. As you travel, enjoy additional insights into natural history, which will serve to lend context to the dazzling backdrops you find yourself photographing. Meet at Stewart's Photo Shop in Downtown and hop aboard a cozy tour van. Travel along the scenic Cook Inlet Coast, and arrive at Earthquake Park for your first shoot: the remaining aftermath of the Great Alaska Earthquake of 1964. Then, pay a visit to Point Woronzof, known as a gathering spot for local moose. With a little luck, you'll be hanging a picture of antlers on your wall, but either way you'll have the opportunity to photograph a beautiful perspective of Cook Inlet backed by the Alaskan Range. Afterwards, a pit stop at Lake Hood Floatplane Base will give you the chance to snap some shots of the summer air traffic. Follow with a voyage through Potter Marsh. Formed 100 years ago, totally by accident, this whoopsie wetland now serves as a home for migrating birds. Continue your trip with a drive along Seward Highway, and then take quick hike to McHugh Creek. Master shutter techniques as you photograph the river's flow into Turnagain Arm, with a better-than-bad chance at spotting beluga whales swimming below. Finish your picturesque journey high up in the Glen Alps of the Chugach mountains for panoramic shots of Anchorage and Cook Inlet, just in time for sunset. As a private tour, you can work with your guide to tailor your inventory, and make a spontaneous stops along your route to shoot the local wildlife (with your camera). Happy hunting!

    LeConte Glacier & "Little Norway" Tour

    You there! Freeze! Stop what you're doing and join Alaska Waters Inc. for an amazing glacier tour! Sitting in a 12-mile fjord at the head of LeConte Bay, the spectacular LeConte Glacier is not only North America's southernmost tidewater glacier, but it's also part of a massive system of glaciers that stretches for 120 miles between the Stikine and Whiting Rivers. All around this remote fjord, snowy peaks rise high into the clear Alaskan air to heights of 4,000 feet, and thundering waterfalls plunge into its depths. You'll travel these remarkable waters aboard a covered and heated jet boat, maneuvering between fields of icebergs and spotting both nesting harbor seals and bald eagles preying on seal pups. Afterwards, you'll make a 1-2 hour stop in Petersburg, also known as Alaska's "Little Norway." There you can grab a bite to eat or visit the Petersburg Museum. This charming community also offers plenty of souvenir opportunities. Depending on tide conditions, the Petersburg stop may occur at the beginning of the tour.
