Eric is a great guide and boat driver. Highly recommend them, look at their reviews. Very safe, but also exciting.

We took a half day trip up the Stikine River, starting out from Wrangell. We are very experienced wildlife & National Park fans, having now visited 50 of the US National Parks. On this trip, we spent 7 weeks seeing the wonders of Alaska. In that context, we found the Stikine River nice and interesting but somewhat ordinary compared to the other wonderful National Parks in Alaska. On the River trip, we saw one wolf from a distance, one whale, and a bunch of harbor seals. The scenery was below average for Alaska. E.G. the scenery in Kanai Fijords NP was awesome.

On a separate trip we went to Anan, and that was great.

This is a very beautiful river with many sloughs (contributing creeks and smaller rivers). Up one of the sloughs you'll be in the end of a glacier; full of icebergs. Another place to stop is Chief Shakes Hot Springs, 2 beautiful structures (one is covered and has a bug screen) in which to sit and soak and look at the view. This was just great.

Gorgeous wilderness river, with glaciers, huge trees, hot tubs, and one or two mosquitos.
