We are a family-owned and -operated business founded in 2001 by Sitka residents and Alaska natives, Bruce, and Rhonda Conine. Their inspiration came while on a cruise to Jamaica. Their guide showed them such a good time on their shore excursion, and they knew they could do the same in Sitka! They started Sitka Wildlife Tours the next summer, providing group and family tours in Sitka, Alaska, and have been sharing their love for Sitka ever since.
Rhonda and Bruce meet and greet every guest as you arrive at the tour departure point.
Our local tour guides love where they live and love to share their experiences and stories of historic and beautiful Sitka as they take you on a small group tour of the town.

We have lived in Sitka for over 40 years. We consider Sitka our own personal slice of paradise! We would be honored to show you our amazing city of Sitka, Alaska!
