New Water Filters and Bottles!

In an effort to protect our environment from additional plastic, it’s our aim to be more effective in not using throw away bottles. Instead, we will be stopping at Bridal Veil Falls, to fill your new water bottle with filtered water.

You may purchase a new water bottle with our logo on it, for $3 each. Your money then goes to an environmental group that we support! It’s a win win situation! You get to drink glacier water during your tour, you take home a reusable water bottle, an environmental group benefits with our support and our earth breathes a little easier, knowing we won’t be adding plastic to it!

There’s no need to filter this glacier water, as it is very pure, but this will eliminate any worries! Our filters will protect you from 99.94% of bacteria, including Giardia.

Thank you! Becky

Spring Break Up~

Announcing our two new 2015 Ford Transit Vans, with high ceilings and lots of leg room. You will enjoy individual seats, not bench seats. New, clean and very comfy, you will ride in one of these two vans, if you have 9-14 people in your group! Our smaller groups will be in one of our “also very nice” mini vans or our SUV. jm160217_Transits

About the Light

In photography, it’s all about the light, and what it’s doing. How does it play a role in your photos? Request our guides, Tom or Jay, if you are interested in learning more about light and photography. Jay took this photo overlooking Tushi Lake, where we take our 7 hour tours.
