Scenic Rafting Float Trip on Taiya River in Skagway, Alaska

Setting out from the downtown area on your family-friendly Scenic Skagway Float excursion, enjoy a 10-mile drive along the coast to the beautiful Dyea Valley, home to an old gold rush settlement, which has now returned to nature. On the drive to the float tour, you may spot seals and eagles, and your driver will share some information on the area's history and nature. See the start of the famous Chilkoot Trail where thousands journeyed in pursuit of gold.

Upon arrival at the put-in location, you will get your flotation vest before boarding the rubber raft with your captain/guide. Along with your group of at most 11 guests, you will sit back and let your guide do the paddling. On this Skagway cruise excursion, your guide will point out wildlife and native plants, and tell stories of the area's fascinating history as you float down the gentle Taiya River. Float time is approximately 40 to 45 minutes on the river, depending on the current. After the rafting, enjoy a riverside snack.

Time permitting, you will also stop at the Skagway scenic overlook for a panoramic view of the town after the float tour.

We set off on a bus tour to where we met the raft. Traveled through town and saw lots of bald eagles hanging out at the old dump. They are opportunists and will eat anything, dead or alive. Once we met the raft at the river, we were give instructions by our guide. Pretty basic simple stuff. There was a total of 6 of us on the raft not including the guide. It was a simple float down the river, nothing to get excited about, just a leisurely float. We saw some more bald eagles on the way and their nests. Once we reached our end destination, we were offered small packages of salmon jerky for a snack. Most didn't take one but I did and it was good. So, if you want easy and leisure take this rafting tour.

5 StarsWonderful trip!!June 12, 2017

We were surprised and happy about what a small group we had. It was chilly that day, but we were dressed for it, and never felt uncomfortable. Brooke was a great guide with lots of info, and we enjoyed our morning on the Skagway float!!
