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

Guess we went on an off day . It was raining and so foggy that we could not even see the water . Just looked like a big white cloud. When the leader told us to look for whale blows, it was a bad joke because we could not see through the thick fog.Saw nothing except an eagle's nest. This... More

Spectacular fun and a must do. Especially if you have teens. We saw dozens of eagles and seals with and without pups. We saw waterfalls close enough to get sprayed, canyon walls close enough to touch. Teens can sit up front and get bounced a bit, older folks can stay toward back and get bounced much less. There was a... More

Jen the narrator was great and educated us about the coast of Alaska and the Seals and Eagles we saw. And we saw tons of Seals and Eagles. Don't miss this excursion, it was thrilling!

Dan, usually in the office did an awesome job of educating and entertaining our recent visit. This is a little wild and still beautiful, stopping to share their special spots along the fjord. We saw 12 eagles, nest, sea lions and unbelievable waterfalls. Stayed perfectly dry and warm with their supplies.

This was a fantastic excursion! The raft ride itself was really exciting- we rocketed around the area and also saw lots of cool wildlife. We even managed to see a pod of orcas although that is very unusual for this trip. The suits we wore were pretty crazy but kept us warm. I had lots of fun and would definitely... More
