“Amazing glacier experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011

Captain Dan steered his 10 passenger boat to the face of the Le Conte glacier. We cruised through waters filled with floating icebergs. We made it within a 1/2 of a mile of Le Conte glacier and saw the glacier calving. This was a most exciting & memorable excursion.

“Great bear-watching trip to Anan Creek”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2011

We thought Breakaway did a great job. The guide, Jerrod, was experienced and knowledgeable. He drove the boat out to Anan -- the ride is about an hour -- and went with us on the trail to the observatory. I was a little tense on the 20 minute hike out there, but he carried a rifle and bear spray, and gave us a good briefing on bear safety. So I felt fairly confident. The rangers we met were very complimentary about him, too. This is a very expensive trip but really is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. I got some fantastic photos, and we were able to spend hours observing these amazing animals. We felt it was well worth the money. A couple of suggestions if you bring kids: This is a long day, so you might want to bring something for them to do and let them take their own pictures. Also, you cannot bring food with you, so make sure they are well-fed beforehand.

“Fantastic day on the river...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2010

I did the Stikine River day trip, a jetboat ride up the Stikine River. Eric was the driver/guide for the trip (and the business owner), a local with 20+ years (give or take) experience on the river. I had a fantastic day, the weather was gorgeous and it was just a pleasure to see such a beautiful river up close. Eric was a great guide too, lots of local knowledge, helpful and a good sense of humour to boot! Highly recommend it to anyone visiting Wrangell...
