Not what we expected
August 30, 2022
When we arrived at the stream for our gold panning, our guide handed everyone a pan with dirt in it. The dirt did have flakes on gold already in it. This was a little disappointing. We expected a challenge. The salmon bake was very good in spite of the rainy weather. In the end it was a nice time.

A Gold Digger for the day
October 18, 2019
I felt like a real Gold Digger as i got down & dirty learning how the Prospectors (like our Guide Motherlake Matt) searched for Gold in the old days. Our Salmon Bake Lunch was just as wonderful as bringing home the gold!

Our family of 5 took this excursion and it was historically informative and gave us a different perspective on the life of a miner. Plus the salmon bake was FANTASTIC!

Gold panning was a lot of fun. The group was small so we got personal attention. Both myself and partner took some gold home and official certificate. Salmon Bake was excellent and the blueberry cake and cornbread were also excellent!

Found gold!! Dry salmon
June 26, 2017
Our tour guide took time to show us how to pan for gold. Several in our group found some specks of gold. The salmon bake was okay. The salmon was VERY dry and overcooked, but we had a good time and the employees were very nice.

Gold panning and Gold Creek Salmon Bake

The weather was cold and wet--but the tour was excellent. Great tour guide--upbeat and entertaining. We learned a lot and were successful panning for gold. The guide was well prepared for everything we needed. It was rainy--and he even provided ponchos for us to wear when we were panning for gold. The food from the salmon bake was delicious--and abundant--in a gorgeous setting. Best ever!!!!!!

Well-organized Tour
November 11, 2016
We chose this excursion particularly for our grandsons, 7 and 9. We were brought to the gold panning site and our driver-prospector clearly explained the procedure. The boys had time to wash the dirt and discover the gold flakes, but not too much time to get bored. Then our driver took us to the salmon bake, again well organized, with lots of food. Even picky eaters were satisfied. We walked back a short trail to a waterfall and could see salmon in the creek, as well as an abandoned and blocked-off mine. Our driver gave us a short tour of Juneau as we returned to the ship, including a brief history of the area.

We learned a lot panning for gold. The salmon bake feast was fabulous, so we'll done. Even the poring rain was enjoyable with the ponchos that were excellent excursion. Can't wait to do it again.

Wonderful experience!
November 29, 2015
Wonderful experience! Only drawback was the rain - which, as we know, there is no control over that. We dressed appropriately so we were OK. Food was good. Wish there were more choices on buffet line as our travel companions didn't like salmon (we didn't know!), and a lot of the items had cheese or dairy. Salmon was WONDERFUL!

My husband and I had so much fun on this trip. walter got a little gold fever I could not get him to stop panning. This was the first time I got my husband to eat salmon and he LOVED it. This is a great excursion, try it and see for yourself. Everyone was so nice and made sure that you were having a fun and exciting time. BEST SALMON EVER.
