Sail Along the Steep Fjords of Skagway

Leave the crowds of Skagway behind on this unique combo excursion. This Skagway port trip uses three modes of travel - public catamaran, 12-passenger van, and Alaskan bush plane - to explore Alaska's best glaciers, scenery, and wildlife.

The trip begins with a 45-minute catamaran ride along the steep-walled fjords connecting Skagway to Haines. Over a dozen unnamed waterfalls drop hundreds of feet from the cliff sides on both sides of the boat. Learn about Tlingit culture, marvel at the scenery and look for humpback whales, harbor seals, and a variety of seabirds. Upon arrival in Haines, you will meet your expert guide and enjoy a seaside drive to Chilkoot Lake State Park, approximately 45 minutes away.

This park has it all--a turquoise lake surrounded by snow-capped mountains, important Tlingit cultural sites, and a salmon-filled river flowing into the sea. Keep an eye out for bald eagles, harbor seals, and brown bears here. Your guide will pick a scenic spot to enjoy a picnic lunch.

Board one of Alaska's famous bush planes for a 50-minute glacier tour. Soar past the face of the Rainbow Glacier, a hanging glacier with an immense waterfall pouring from its face. Continue to the Davidson Glacier to look down upon the Davidson Icefall, crisscrossed with crevasses and ice towers. This is a great opportunity to look for mountain goats as you glide over a sea of ice on your way back to Skagway.

Reviewer: Bob
Initial contact at Skagway port delayed by late arrival of contact! All other aspects of excursion worked well and proved very interesting and some excitement with flight from Haines. A good experienced pilot in his Otter aircraft.
