What a fantastic time! This crew not only gets you up close and personal with wildlife, waterfalls and scenery but they are always professional and fun to talk to. It is obvious their #1 priority is you - your safety, your fun and most of all to make this the most memorable part of your vacation....best of all you get an affordable adventure that you cannot find anywhere else. Don't think about taking one of their tours- DO IT!

We did this adventure as part of a Disney Cruise Port Adverture on the 30th May 2013 in the morning. To be honest when we left the cruise ship we did not really understand what we were letting ourselves in for but this was by far one of the best things we did in Alaska. The team were brilliant, very knowledgable & respectful to the environment and wildlife around Alaska. The Navy Seal Boat was great fun and allowed us to get up close to all sorts of wildlife in a 2 hour tour including Eagles, Whales (I think we got lucky to see Whales), Mountain Goats and Seals. We did a couple of wildlife adventure in Alaska but this was different and by far the best as the small boat means you are always in a modest size group led by a small company of experts. A great experience, highly recommended!

When we cruise we always do our homework- we never book through the ship- you will find better values and better experiences when you do---Another hit!!! The Ocean Raft Adventiure in Skagway was awesome!!!! Great gear provided great guides and great fun . We happened to have hit"pay dirt" Breaching Whales,and TAILS very near to us, seals and pups,, eagles, mountain goats...... That being said, even if we had not seen these we still would have had fun.

This fast paced tour will not disappoint. In fact, it was one of the highlights of my family's 7 day cruise. A fun and safe speed boat takes you out on the water to see some of the most spectacular vistas in the area. The tour included frequent stops where we saw bald eagles, mountain goats and even a whale. We also got up close to see tremendous waterfalls and mountain views. The crew was knowledgeable about the geology and wildlife and provided good commentary on the tour. This was a fun excursion and well worth the price of admission. #1 in my book.

Klondike Tours Ocean Rafting was absolutely amazing. My group booked with Klondike Tours instead of through our cruise line, and we all had a great time. Not only was it fun and exciting but the staff made our experience over the top. We learned a lot about Skagway, Lynn Canal as well as the land, plants and animals. I wasn't sure if we would see any wildlife but we saw several bald eagles, mountain goals and a humpback whale! I would recommend this excursion to anyone who is looking for a exciting, educational and safe adventure.

Warm and life vest suits were provided along with eye wear and gloves to ensure our safety and making it a more comfortable ride as we could go as fast as 50 miles per hour! Exciting!
