Alaska Hummer Adventures is an independent, family owned and operated company that has been guiding tourists off the beaten path in style and comfort through the temperate rainforest of Southeast Alaska since 2004.
The founders identified the need for a more personalized, custom touring option based on the individual needs of small groups. Their own travel experiences as a family of five with young children inspired them to create this private, custom, affordable adventure service they call "Touring in Rugged Luxury.”
Their vision came to fruition as the company began operations in 2004 with one Hummer H2, and continued expansion with a fleet of five Hummers. In 2015, they took this concept to the water adding "Hummer of the sea” adventures including Expedition Black Bear, Saltwater Expedition, and Misty Fjords Expedition. Alaska Hummer Adventures is proud to be an innovator in bringing the true Alaskan lifestyle to so many of our guests worldwide.
What we'll do
Your six-pack licensed captain will guide you on a saltwater safari through the Tongass Narrows, Clover Passage, and temperate rainforest to Neets Bay, navigating the vessel on a path of scenic sanctuaries, stunning bays, and inlets, past a majestic lighthouse, seeking marine and coastal wildlife viewing opportunities along the way.
Neets Bay is located 40 miles north of Ketchikan and approximately 90-110 minutes (one way) by boat. Quite often you will be able to observe the captivating behavior of whales breaching and tail-slapping, revere bear trails and salmon streams, and marvel at bald eagles feasting on salmon leftovers from the bears foraging.
At Neets Bay, black bear lines the shore, catching as many protein-rich salmon as they can. Watching them fish and interact with each other in a natural setting is an amazing experience. Keep an eye out, as you may also spot Sitka black-tailed deer, mink, marten, and seals which all populate the area. All viewing is onboard from the comfort of our Coastal Cruiser. While wildlife is abundant, but sightings are not guaranteed.
