This is a two-hour excursion on a high-speed, 750 horsepower raft that takes you up and down the waters just outside of Skagway. They put everyone in Coast Guard approved survival suits that are not just good flotation, but they keep you warm. We went in late September when the air temperature was in the low 50's, so this was... More

We like to pick tours that are different and somewhat exciting, and this excursion did not disappoint. The raft is spacious for the small group of people and interesting enough, has quite comfortable seating.The tour group provides a neck to ankle suit with a hood which doubles as a life jacket. Hats and goggles were also available to use.The Princess... More

Me, my husband, and our 11 year old son booked this excursion in Skagway and boy, am I glad we did. What a thrill ride! High speed boating, loads of eagle sightings, the cutest harbor seals. All three of us absolutely loved the ride, and we could not have asked for better weather! Sunny, not too rough waters, comfortable. I... More

Great fun ride in a navy seal type boat with survival suits on. Fast, fun, adventurous and sights to behold. We loved getting up close and personal with bald eagles and harbor seals.

This is the second time we took this excursion, and we had even more fun this time than the first! We were met at the dock by a driver who took us the short way to the "hanger" where we got suited up. The crew made quick work of zipping everyone into their exposure suits, and did a quick safety...

Fantastic trip. Captain Ashley was at the controls, making sure we got a good understanding of the speed an maneuverability of the boat as we toured (mostly) the shoreline of the harbor, while Captain Jen did a wonderful job acting as the naturalist, telling us all about the area and the wildlife. I have never seen so many bald eagles... More

We sped up and down the fjord in a small boat to get an up close look at eagles and harbor seals. The captain and guide were nice and knowledgable of the area. The orange suits kept us comfy.

Be sure to book a wildlife rafting excursion with Captain Jen and Alisa as your guide-you will not be disappointed! No need to worry if you forgot your hats, gloves or jackets, the tour company outfits you with top of the line equipment to ensure a warm and dry experience. While you race around the fjords and coastline (and I... More
