A visit to Southeast Alaska should not be considered complete unless you have spent some time on the water enjoying the spectacular scenery, unmatched whale watching and wildlife viewing, or superior saltwater fishing. Glacier Wind Charters is a locally owned and operated tour business that has been providing visitors with exceptional and memorable Alaskan experiences since 1995. Our tours originate from the harbor in Hoonah, Alaska located one mile from the Icy Strait Point cruise port.

Glacier Wind Charters puts you in the middle of the action aboard one of our two boats, whale watching aboard Kohola (Hawaiian for whale) our custom designed and built 32 foot power catamaran, or fishing aboard the Glacier Wind a 35 foot, diesel powered lobster yacht. Both vessels are equipped with a full complement of modern conveniences and safety gear to insure you have the most comfortable and enjoyable day on the water possible. Our boats can transport up to six persons, assuring you a personal, uncrowded experience.

Our captain, Shawn McConnell,is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable captains working in the area. Captain Shawn has 36 years of experience on the waters of Icy Strait, and has been sharing his knowledge of the local natural history on successful trips with our guests since 1995.

You will spend your time with us enjoying the whales and other abundant wildlife, and the very best fishing our area has to offer. We make every effort to see that your visit to Alaska is one that will provide a lifetime of unforgettable memories.
