Visit Wrangell, Alaska, which is lucky enough to be at the mouth of the Stikine River. It is a favorite of locals, and a must see! Book a Stikine River adventure with Captain Eric of Breakaway Adventures and you will not be disappointed! His casual nature will make you feel like you are having just another day adventure out with... More

Alaska Vistas guided our tour up the Stikine River to Shakes Glacier area. Since it was early in the season we didn't get very close to the glacier but it was still an amazing experience to see and photograph the beautiful icebergs and to chip some ice to bring back for our evening drinks. The trip up the river takes... More

We took a jetboat ride from Wrangell up the Stikine River to Shakes Glacier. We used Alaska Charters and Adventures and Brenda (owner) was our guide. It was a 4 hour trip up the river where we saw sea lions and eagles everywhere. We manuvered our way through small ice bergs that had "calved" off of the glacier. It was... More

You should have seen the smile on my oldest grandson's face when the tour boat ran up the Stikine River. He is eight and said the trip was awesome!

The jet boat up the Stikine River was relaxing and pretty. We didn't see any wildlife, but the glacier and scenery are beautiful. We lucked out with gorgeous weather. There isn't a lot to do in Wrangell, so a nice way to spend an afternoon.

Our jetboat tour up the Stikine River with Jim from Alaska Waters was great. His boat is comfortable & has a bathroom! Worth the money to experience a small slice of this wilderness area. We saw bald eagles, spawning salmon, glacially carved valleys, snow capped peaks, and icy blue Stack Glacier. The boat was able to thread its way among... More
