Steve and his staff are quite the characters and give you a great learning experience. Make reservations before you leave home as they keep the crowd small and intimate

Amazing place to visit was one of the highlights of our trip! We were traveling with two girls ages 11 and 7 and they loved the animals!!! It was also wonderful to see how passionate the owners spoke about the animals!

Almost didn't go on this tour but SOOOOOO glad we did. Whenever we speak to our friends about our Alaskan experience we start with the highlight, Kroschel's sanctuary. There is a palpable love shown for these orphaned animals and a concern for their well being....More

Actually, you can put a carrot in your mouth and stick your face toward the moose who will then grab the carrot from your mouth, and possibly leave you with a nice wet nose from bumping his nose. Lots of interesting stories about the animals,...More

What led us to take this tour (aside from our love of animals and those who care for them) was a film entitled "Chasing the Phantom". It is about the elusive wolverine and how Steve Kroschel adopts and raises two orphaned wolverine kits. Needless to...More

Yes there was a tour available from the dock at Haines from Holland American. However it left in the afternoon and I wanted to to visit Kroschel's in the morning. Made my own arrangements to rent a car.

Depends upon where your ship is docked. We're about 35 minutes from Haines . The tour is two hours long and we have set times with the cruise ships for the tours other than private tours that are possible.

I would contact Kroeschel to set up an appointment and then do a car rental for the day. You can rent through the Captain motel. I believe the drive is under thirty miles and the roads are fine.
