Misty Bay Tours is located in downtown Hoonah, right on the bay…now owned and operated by Alaska Galore Tours in Juneau. Icy Strait Brewing recently moved to the same location.
Let us share the magic of Alaska with you and your group. Our motto is that we offer our guests a “One Stop Alaskan Adventure” specifically tailored to each group. Want to go whale watching? We got it! Want to view our magnificent coastal brown bears? We got it! Want to take an eco-tour in our backyard, by vehicle or boat? We got it! Want to do it all? You can!
We also have a brewery and restaurant that offers lunch and dinner served daily, including pizza, pot pies, espresso coffee, ice cream, milkshakes, and more.
Conveniently located within the building is the Icy Strait Brewery. Taste some craft beer, gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, and Alaskan-themed appetizers.
Let us host your Hoonah, Alaska adventure in this peaceful corner of paradise, richly populated by an abundance of wildlife and situated in unbelievable grandeur.
What we'll do
3-hour Whale Watching Excursions to Icy Strait, an area considered one of the top whale watching locations in Alaska. Our guides know where to find the whales.
For those visitors disembarking at the Icy Strait Point destination located in Hoonah, we offer 3-hour Whale Watching Excursions in Icy Strait, an area considered one of the top whale watching locations in Alaska. On this tour, we guarantee you a whale sighting. You will get the chance to see humpback whales and if you are lucky, we also are blessed with a healthy Orca (Killer Whale) population that frequents our area about once per week.
When the opportunity presents itself, our captains cruise the shoreline going out and coming in, to optimize the possibility of spotting our coastal brownies and other wild game feeding along the shores. With us, there is no fighting for views or feeling like you are just one in a herd, because our groups are small and we treat you like family. We will show you great views of our whales - you will not only SEE them, but HEAR and sometimes even SMELL them as well!
Book in advance to secure your preferred date and cruise worry free! On cruise ship days, walk-ins are welcome and we will accommodate you on a space available basis.
Special rates for bears & whales combo tours if you plan to be in Hoonah for 10 to 12 hours are available!
