If Haines is your interest then that would be my choice. I would split up from your group. Tours are too costly to go if no interest and the area too distant not to take what you prefer.

We will be sailing to Alaska in early July. The trip to Haines was also of interest to us. We have booked a jet boat trip out of Haines into the Bald Eagle Preserve. I hear that the float trip is also good. Any comments?

The jetboat sees far less wildlife than the float trips. It's just too noisy. I took this several years ago, their sightings are only about 25% of the trips. Always see eagles though. Just be aware, there is also a 2 for 1 offer on the raft with Dolly Varden if you mention the "family Circle" coupon.

We did the float trip while we were in Haines, wonderful scenery, lots of eagles. Haines is a great town for walking around in, have a burger at the Bamboo Room! Have fun! --Bob
