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. Should you see an eagle, moose or other wildlife, your captain is usually able to slow or stop the boat in order to give you the best photo opportunities.
Enjoy your wilderness adventure and peaceful time out appreciating nature.
You’ll return with a greater respect for Alaska and the residents who call this rugged wilderness their home.
