“Rain did not deter us!”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

We hiked 2.2 miles of the Chilkoot Trail in the drizzle but Jessie kept us informed and laughinat his puns. The float was enjoyable and I highly recommend it. Very informative and fun.

“Fun float”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Had a great float for the family of 5 with kids aged 5, 9 & 12. We had only 2 others plus the guide on the boat with us, so it was pretty much a private tour for us. In fact, we had the whole area of Dyea to ourselves. This is amazing considering there were 3 boats in town. I am not sure what everyone else was doing, but they missed a fantastic experience! The beautiful blue water was calm and easy moving. It required zero effort from us, yet was still active and in the middle of beautiful nature. Right away we saw the eagles nest and the dad flying around. We saw several other birds which my bird watching son enjoyed. The trip was long enough for us to sing many rounds of "Down by the Bay" with Alaskan animals in the verses (remember I said it was pretty much a private tour!) we ended with a snack of Oreos and chunks of smoked salmon (yum!).

Everyone had a great trip although they would have loved to stay in much longer!

“Great excursion”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

On our Alaska trip in May of 2014 we booked this trip. One of our best excursion ever. Bob was our guide and made the experience even more enjoyable. The knowledge and the passion was inspiring. What we learned on this trip helped to make us more aware and appreciative of our surroundings. We could even share our new knowledge on later excursions. Thanks for the experience.

“great excursion in skagway”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

we did the combined bicycle, hiking and floating excursion - great fun and great learning experience. bicycles were high quality and the ride was not overly strenuous. hiked through the forest - bob was our guide and he was exceptional. hike was a bit of a workout but once you got to the raft for the float down the river, you could kick back and relax and enjoy the scenery.

“Good fun for the whole family”
Reviewed May 18, 2014 via mobile

The guides were great. They had all sorts of knowledge about the plants and animals. The float is fun but not taxing, I. E. No danger of being knocked into the river. Great fun for all.
