Slip away from Skagway for a few hours to enjoy the true wilderness that Alaska has to offer. Your excursion will take you to Haines via fast ferry, on a narrated 30 minute ride on the Haines Scenic Byway and into the Bald Eagle Preserve, where your river adventure begins.
The boats are designed specifically for this river and are equipped with eco-friendly four-stroke outboard motors. They are uncovered to provide you with better visibility of wildlife, scenic views and photo opportunities. You'll be provided with extra outerwear to keep you warm and dry.
Your guide is usually able to hold against the current or turn around and go back to give you the best photo opportunities, should you see an eagle or other wildlife. The eagles and moose are used to the boats, so have those cameras ready. Enjoy your wilderness adventure and peaceful time out appreciating nature.
Join your hosts at their private property, with all the amenities. Enjoy a light lunch in a covered and heated pavilion while you visit with your fellow travelers. You’ll return with a greater respect for Alaska and the residents who call this rugged wilderness their home.
