Cruising the Stikine River is a serene experience. The majestic and rugged mountains surrounding the river are breathtaking to say the least. Also the colour of the glaciers in the water are so beautiful. I highly recommend this tour

Loved this, better than I thought it would be. The glacier was beautiful. We saw 50 or so harbor seals. We also saw 2 goats and 2 eagles. No bears, but it was Sept 1, so we weren't expecting any.

We went on a 5 day rafting/camping adventure down the Stikine River with Alaska Vistas and it was a blast. Our gear was all transported for us up river to Telegraph Creek, BC and we got to enjoy a preview of the trip to come the next day as we flew in small planes 160 miles up the river to... More

Took a jet boat ride up the Stikine River during a cruise and stopped at the base of a beautiful glacier. The whole trip took four hours. Magnificent scenery along the river and near the glacier. Went with Captain Mark Gala of "Alaska Peaks and Seas", but booked through our cruise ship and the Stikine River Jet Boat Assoc. Captain... More

A nice jet bait ride up the Stikine river with some good scenery but were unable to go into the smaller rivulets as suggested. Only landed on a sandbar for lunch ( no bathroom facilities) instead of a 'cabin'. The commentary was a bit forced - trying to find things to point out. Okay but no wow factor

This is a must-do. It's a popular getaway for locals with good reason -- I've been up the river three times now in a decade (each trip to Wrangell includes a river run) and I haven't become bored with it. Gorgeous, family-friendly. We recommend Breakaway Adventures.

Just completed a 12 day trip with the University of Calgary Outdoor Program on the Lower Stikine River with 6 canoes. It is considered one of the true wilderness heritage rivers in North America and although most of the reviews only comment on trips out of Wrangell as a day trip, I thought it was important to give a different...

Marlin Benedict took us fishing on the Stikine River and it was a great experience. We started off in a low thick fog but the sun eventually burned it off and by the time we reached the mouth of the river visibility was excellent. Marlin took us to an ideal spot upriver, where scores of spawning salmon mixed with cutthroat... More
