A TASTE OF HAINES
Experience the comforting culinary traditions of Alaska on this unique journey through Haines. This tour is reserved for no more than 14 guests, as the dishes featured are prepared to perfection specifically for a small group. Begin with a sightseeing drive through Haines. Marvel at the cozy nature of this small town, and look out to see Mount Ripinksi and Glacier National Park in the distance. Reach the mouth of the Chilkat River and snap a few photos of the postcard-perfect setting. You’ll head to the Pilot Light Restaurant, where you’ll start with a selection of homegrown beers from the Haines Brewing Company. Afterward, sit down to a tasting of local dishes prepared for you by Cambria Goodwin, featured on the hit show “Cupcake Wars.” Enjoy her signature salmon bisque, fresh bread, salad with local greens, and wrap it all up with a scrumptious dessert.
BERING SEA CRAB FISHERMEN'S TOUR
Set out to sea aboard the Aleutian Ballad, a Bering Sea crab boat, for an adventure that’s so carefree even landlubbers can do it. This boat was featured on season two of the Discovery Channel series, “Deadliest Catch,” and it’s seen some serious rolling seas and rogue waves. Fortunately, that won’t happen today. Instead, you’ll cruise calm waters as the fishing crew demonstrates the art of crabbing and long line fishing. Watch as massive crab pots are hauled on deck. Plus, check out the unique octopus pots, and keep your eyes on the long lines to spy what is pulled from the ocean's depths. During the voyage, you’re also likely to spot wildlife, including majestic bald eagles—so keep those cameras ready. This award-winning excursion gives you a fun, safe, and easy taste of hard-earned life on the Bering Sea.
