So much fun - my husband told me this was a jet boat - which I was not excited about - but this was awesome - the captian and guide showed us some great waterfalls and wildlife - including up close to harbor seals and a baby bear on the beach - so fun!

This is a very good ride. First they give you orange waterproof overalls, and goggles, so you do not get wet, (we have the most amazing family picture with this outfits), then there is the big raft, big enough for 23-28 people. My daughter was the only child, and the expert was right along her, taking care of her all... More

I would recommend the Ocean Raft Adventure to anyone visiting Skagway. They get you dressed in warm suits (almost too warm) before you get in the raft and then off you go. A fun boat ride as well as sightseeing trip as you hug the coastline looking for wildlife. A fun couple of hours, wish it had been longer.

This was a fabulous day!!!! Our captain Christian and naturalist CP did everything possible to make sure it was great fun. After helping us get dressed in our survival suits we were escorted to the raft. The day was perfect and we saw many waterfalls as well as seals and bald eagles. CP was excited when we saw a juvenile... More

While on our Alaskan cruise, we did the Ocean Raft Adventure. It was a highlight of our trip. What fun we had zooming around the inlet! The suits kept us very warm and dry. The boat zigzagged in and out of the coast line. We saw lots of eagles and seals up close. The waterfalls were spectacular and we were... More

We booked Ocean Raft Alaska through our cruise ship. The 'raft' was very fast and a lot of fun. It was very windy when we went out so we were very grateful for the big orange suits which kept us warm. Definitely wear your sunglasses! They had goggles and a face mask for those that wanted it. Our guide was... More

Well organized and run. The boat ride was really fun. We were a bit disappointed to only see a couple bald eagles and a couple seals. The scenery was beautiful

What an enjoyable couple of hours. Not only was it exciting it was very informative. Jen and Captain Ashley did their best to give us a great excursion and they succeeded. Don't miss this sdventure.

We just returned from our Alaskan Cruise and by far our favorite shore excursion was our Ocean Raft Wildlife Adventure with Ocean Raft Alaska! We almost didn't book it because there wasn't a single review for it on the Celebrity website. We are so glad we went ahead and did it! It is like a cross between an amusement park... More
