We booked this excursion on our own and it turned out to be the best excursion we had in Alaska. Captain Ashley and Jennifer (the naturalist) were great. We had a lot of fun and we were able to see beautiful waterfalls and eagles. This excursion allowed us to see more of Alaska up close and personal. I would highly... More

We had a great time checking out the wildlife and speeding around the town. CP & Jen were excellent with each interaction throughout the entire experience. Probably not for the faint of heart, the speed boat sections were very fun, although cold. Luckily, there was plenty of warm items provided to keep you warmer - and provide such fun photos.... More

Captain Ashley and Dan were as entertaining as the raft ride itself. Many close-up sights to see. A must do for an excursion at Skagway.

This was a fantastic trip. We walked from where our cruise ship docked round to where the rafts are. We were given the briefing and then went to the raft. There was only us and our 2 friends on the raft with 2 drivers. This was a brilliant experience both in terms if the excitement nd also the views and... More

Skipper met us at the pier. Drove us to changing area. There are bins to secure your backpacks and the extra layers of clothing you do not need. The dry suit is adequate with regular street clothes. You do not get wet. Our skipper, CP,was great. He loves what he is doing and it shows. We did donuts, racing towards... More

Do NOT miss this adventure!! Dan and Ashley were great guides. You will get suited up in a crazy full-body orange jumpsuit/flotation device. You are also provided with goggles, gloves and a warm hood if you need it (we had insanely clear hot weather that day). They whiz you around the Lynn Canal where they stop to point out wildlife...

This was by far the best tour we did on our Alaskan Cruise! As we cruised around the fjord in the zodiac we were able to see seals and eagles. Our guides Dan and captain Ashley were extremely knowledgeable and entertaining! Overall, a fantastic tour and a must do!!

We had a great two-hour ride with Jen. The eagles and harbor seals were a treat to see. It was exhilarating! They outfit you with exposure suits for safety. The seats are like saddles with a pommel to hold on with the extreme turns at speed. A great ride.

A great way to get out for an up-close look at the ocean! Dan and Heather were great guides. They took us very close to sides of the mountains and showed us some awesome waterfalls. We saw seals and all kinds of birds. It was wonderful! And the silly, giant oranges suits keep you very warm and comfortable. Tall socks... More

My husband and I took a cruise in Alaska and we didn't schedule any excursions with the cruise ships because they were super expensive. So when we got to Skagway we were pleasantly surprised to find a tour company right away! They had more than enough options on things to do and see, but we really wanted to experience the... More
