If you have a short time on port and want to explore nature, get information from locals/experts and do something fun and adventurous, this is for you. While on the CCL LEGEND last month decided to take this tour and loved it. Jen, Ashley and Heather were amazing. Thanks again.

After being suited up in lifejacket/coveralls, we were lead down to the raft. The raft holds 20 passengers and there is a captain and an assistant. They take you out on the water to look for wildlife. We saw at least 20 bald eagles, and a few seals. One of the eagles was flying and the raft kept up with... More

This is a great excursion with an appropriate price. We only saw Bald Eagles & some Jelly Fish (we were hoping to see some seals) but still had a great time riding on a high speed raft while decked out in survival suits getting up close to some of the waterfalls surrounding the area. The staff was very intelligent &... More

When I think of rafting I imagine paddles and not a lot of speed. That's not what this is. This is a high-speed thrill ride with Alaskan wildlife and scenery added in. Fun for everyone in the family. The staff was friendly and helpful. A memorable experience.

On our first port-of-call on a Carnival Alaskan Inside Passage, we chose this excursion. It was fun from beginning to end! We had to adorn astronaut-like orange water suits as we embarked on a high-speed, thrilled-filled wilderness adventure. There were several stops to learn of the geography and inhabitants of the Fjord. Seals, sea lions, bald eagles, waterfalls, mussels, and... More
