“Great family fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

We always wondered what it would be like to pan for gold. Now we have a better appreciation of the work involved.

“Panning for Gold and Salmon Bake.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Our guide was Klondike Kai who was very informative and hands on. It was a lot of fun learning how to pan for gold and then trying it. We then enjoyed a nice dinner with local musician and a campfire to roast marshmallows. It was a tour I enjoyed and its an experience that I enjoying telling others about especially because not many people have experienced it.

“Klondike Kai was interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Klondike Kai was interesting, that's all there is to really say. The Gold panning was ok but Kai made it interesting.

“Gold!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

We were picked up by Panner Kelly at our ship. He took us through Juneau to the site of the Orelove Bros. gold claim. We were each given a pan filled with dirt and taught how to pan. Both of us had gold and garnets in our pans. Kelly was a great guide and very helpful with our panning. A lot of fun and very relaxing.
