We went on 3 excursions from our cruise line. Deep sea fishing, float plane over the glaciers, zip line, and this rafting adventure. All 6 agreed this was by far their favorite of all the excursions. I had never seen such beauty like I did on this adventure. I live in the Rocky's and have camped near the pan handle... More

It was an great experience from start to finish. The crew managed to be the perfect combination of professional, knowledgeable and fun. They made getting into the 'stay warm, stay safe' orange protective suits part of the fun. They balanced going fast moments with peaceful moments up close to the waterfalls, which were beautiful. This raft with its padded saddle... More

If you want beautiful views, wildlife viewings, and a fun (FUN) boating excursion coupled with extremely professional and friendly staff, this is for you! We had such an amazing time. Safe, but a few thrills and some excellent explanations of the land and wildlife by our guide. This company will not disappoint!

This was a very fun ride! Was pretty much a fast speedboat ride (we did a few donuts) in the cool raft near the shore. There were lots of stops to see beautiful waterfalls, seals, and tons of eagles. The awesome bright orange jumpsuits and face masks make it a cozy and warm ride - not to mention super stylish.... More

Jen and Ashley did an amazing job of showing us the fjord. We had wonderful weather and great tour group. There are so many tours to choose from but I would HIGHLY suggest not missing this one. These guys and gals have an exceptional operation. They are not only knowledgable about the area but also a whole lot of fun.... More

Whilst organising our first trip to Canada/Alaskan cruise we came across this tour out of Skagway, it was not offered by Holland America ( I've passed on the info though so maybe will be in the future ) and seemed bit more unusual. I was dubious as we are both mid sixties but reasonably fit & young at heart, I... More

This trip is not for the faint of heart.......you'll be doing a lot of spins throughout your trip.....hang on tight ! I forgot how much H.P. this boat had, but it scooted ! We had several stops to point out wildlife and waterfalls. You start out by putting on dry suits so should you get splashed, you don't freeze to... More
