I took my not-so-adventurous husband and two teenage daughters on this tour. It was the best thing we did in Alaska!! We had an awesome time :-) Our guide was Jen and she was awesome. She was so knowledgeable on the local wildlife and plants. She did a great job explaining everything as we went along. Captain Ashley was a... More

This tour was absolutely fantastic! Our Guide was Jan (I think that was her name) and our Captain was Ashley. They both did an awesome job. The ride from the pier to the tour location was pretty short... The bus could have been a bit more comfortable. Getting on and off the bus took a little more effort than it... More

Captain Ashley and our guide Jan gave us an informative, fun, exciting ride on their newest craft (zodiac/RIBB equipped with three 250 hp engines). The tour was the best part of our Alaskan adventure.

We booked this tour through our cruise line and this was by far the most fun we had in all of Alaska! Dynamic, hilarious, & passionate crew along with an exhilarating ride made this the highlight of our trip. Not only was the ride exciting and fast paced, but we also stopped to see wildlife and waterfalls up close, an... More

We booked this tour while in Skagway on our Alaska cruise.. The tour started with a high speed trek across the water in front of the cruise ships in our Zodiac. We traveled approximately 10 miles up the Fjord weaving in and out of the coastline and doing several donuts. The captain stopped at several spots along the way for... More

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
