Tour Details

Leave the crowds and touristy sites behind as you climb into a catamaran and sail 45 minutes along a steep-walled fjord from Skagway to the friendly town of Haines. This small, remote location is a true artists enclave with the highest percentage of professional artists in the rural USA. As you sail along be sure to keep an eye out for bald eagles, humpback whales and harbor seals while your guide shares historical facts about the Lynn Canal.

Your first stop in Haines will be the Hammer Museum, the first gallery in the world dedicated to the display of man's first tool. With displays spanning from Egyptian pyramids to the Space Age there is something here to delight everyone.

Drive along the Chilkat River, past the historic Letnikof Cannery to Extreme Dreams Art Studio, you can step into the handcrafted timber frame gallery, meet the owners and see various watercolors, woodcut prints, glass and textiles.

From there you will ride over rough terrain to the ocean's edge at Chilkat State Park. Relax with a picnic lunch against a picturesque backdrop of snowcapped mountains and the Rainbow Glacier waterfall before your catamaran ride back to Skagway.

Please Note: Your 6.5-hour small tour includes lunch. Guests must be able to walk to the tour sites. No wheelchair access available. Reserve your spot today to see Haines and experience the offbeat side of Alaska.
