I am surprised that you would blame us for you booking the wrong day. On the day you were scheduled for we looked everywhere for you and lost out on selling the two seats as you were a no show! The next day you show up out of the blue after we sold out and now blame us. We wish you would called to let us know about the mistake. We are sorry you booked the wrong day . I pray the rest of your cruise stops where booked properly.

We are the luckiest family to have chosen this tour with Becky. Her love of her town and state showed in everything she showed us and talked to us about - always beginning with "Welcome to Sitka" as she revealed something else! The Fortress of the Bear is a rescue organization
