SMALL GROUPS AND NO CROWDS:  While we have the capability to accommodate larger groups, we feel that wildlife viewing and photography along with real wilderness surroundings are best experienced by very small groups.  Being part of a large tour group doesn’t lend itself to the up close and personal experience we strive to provide our guests.
PERSONALIZED SERVICE: If you choose to be one of our guests, you’ll be more than just a number in a crowd.  You can expect us to recognize your individual interests, limitations and expectations.
TRAINING AND EXPERIENCE: Our mission at Alaska Charters and Adventures is to provide you with the highest quality guides and captains, and we carefully select your guide the day you book with us.  We offer you Wrangell’s only state certified guides, in addition to being certified Naturalists, we are also Cultural and Alaskan Hosts.  You can expect to be led by a highly trained, mature, and professional guide.
TRIP LENGTH: Alaska Charters and Adventures is unique in that we only offer FULL day excursions.  We don’t over crowd our schedule with multiple departures each day.  What this means for you is that you can linger for that perfect photo and enjoy plenty of opportunities to get out and take in the scenery.  All our departure times are customized to meet your needs, optimize wildlife viewing and lighting.  Why rush? More time is more opportunity to experience Alaska’s remarkable nature.
