Because we know that our environment sustains us and our island’s magnificent wildlife sanctuary, we hold the preservation of our natural resources in the highest regard. Our Commitment to Sustainability: – Ensure that our island remains pristine and free of pollution. – Educate all who visit our island to ensure that they are informed and will comply with all island stewardship policies. – Monitor and check that all who visit our island demonstrate respect for our values, as well as conduct themselves with respect for our island wildlife habitat. – Continue to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and waste of resources, thereby reducing our carbon footprint.

While cruising the coastline of the Tongass National Forest, the world’s largest temperate rainforest, our experienced local captain and their crew will share their knowledge of Southeast Alaska’s coastal history, native culture, and the interconnected ecosystems and the animals that call this region home. Whether relaxing in the heated main cabin or enjoying the open-air observation deck of the boat, we encourage visitors to keep on the lookout for American bald eagles, harbor seals, sea lions, moon jellyfish, pigeon guillemots, blue heron, deer, whales, and other wildlife. A complimentary snack buffet and non-alcoholic beverages are included in our tour!

Lighthouse Excursions is dedicated to sustainable tourism practices. Be it guest-direct (like promoting safe and respectful wildlife viewing or providing recycling receptacles on board our vessels) or behind-the scenes (like employee education or investing in environmentally-friendly vessel upgrades), we love our Alaskan wilderness and proudly support an environmental ethic which will preserve our state for generations to come.

Denali Photo Guides

Denali Photo Guides has been offering small group, instructional photography excursions since 2010. Tours are designed to benefit visitors to Denali National Park who have an interest in photographing the beautiful landscapes in Alaska. Tours travel in luxury trucks along the boundary of Denali National Park, into Broad Pass, and on the Denali Highway, stopping several times to get out and shoot pictures. Tours are typically 3 to 4 hours in duration. Guests may have their own camera, rent one from us, or they may bring a smart phone. No matter what type of gear guests have or what their skill level is, our guides help visitors progress as photographers. With a maximum of 4 participants per tour, our guides spend a significant amount of one-on-one time with each guest. In addition to photography, guides also provide information about the area’s natural history, geology & culture. The small group size allows guests the freedom to ask any question they want (as many times as they want!). The combination of the small group with our selection of pristine locations fosters a truly immersive experience leaving guests with a lasting impression of the vastness, wilderness, and specialness of the Denali area.

Camp Denali

Camp Denali’s long standing family ownership is committed to preserving and refining the fundamental elements of our mission: excellence, community, and place. Your Camp Denali experience is personal. It is a unique blend of camaraderie among fellow adventurers and staff in a wilderness environment without parallel. At the core of our guest experience is a chance to be close to the land and, in exploring Denali’s wilderness, to learn about its ecology and history. More than facts and figures about Denali, we hope our guests return home with new ways of seeing, understanding, and taking care of the natural world in their own backyards. In addition, we hope that our own on-site sustainable practices, such as operating on renewable energy with our 90kW solar array and utilizing our greenhouse to grow our own fresh produce, will provide an opportunity for our guests, staff, and other small business owners in Alaska to learn about viable alternatives to the status quo. For us, providing excellent hospitality is not about attending to every luxury or amenity. Instead, we strive to ensure our guests’ comfort, meet their needs, and surpass their expectations.
