Had a great time and wow was it a nice day and so beautiful. This company was very good at what they do and the ride was smooth. If I come back I will do it again. There were 11 of us and we took to boats and it was great

Wasn’t sure what to expect. Certainly wasn’t white rapids, phew! However it was a relaxing float down a glacier run off. Seeing Two Bald Eagles mates & nest was the best. So quiet just. Perfect escape from ship life& busy tourist attraction. Owen was an excellent guide.

Skagway Float

I chose this excursion bcuz I wanted to do something more adventurous while in Alaska. The drive to the location let you see the city and countryside. The stop overlooking the city was breathtaking. The ride down the river was great seeing the natural beauty and habitat. Saw 5 bald eagles on the trip. Looked being off at grid and not with a lot of people. The maximum was 12 people and we only had 5 people. Loved it

We thoroughly enjoyed this excursion. My mother-in-law is 75 and not in great shape, so I was concerned that she might have difficulty with the tour or not enjoy it. She LOVED it! It was a little challenging getting her in and out of the raft, but the guys on the tour helped her and she managed just fine. The float down the river was positively dreamy and required zero effort from us. The scenery was spectacular. The guys on the tour were really friendly and kind. My only desire was that it would have lasted a bit longer. The snacks at the end of the tour were a nice touch.

Skagway River Float The float itself was okay, but slightly underwhelming. Getting there: Our tour guide met us right at the end of dock so that was easy. Based on other floats that we’ve done, I think we expected it to be a little more scenic considering that it was in the Alaskan wilderness. We did see a seal & a bald eagle while we were on the river, but overall it felt like we were on a generic river. Not particularly scenic. We had good weather for our float. The tour provided boots for getting in & out of the river & we remained dry throughout our journey. Our guide Sam was very nice and knowledgeable. He saved what could have been a disappointing excursion. He not only a knew a lot about the river, but also the town and the local history. The rest of the support staff was also very nice.

What a way to get on the inside of Alaska
August 06, 2018
This was a peaceful, beautiful way to see Alaska the way I'm sure the animals see it. Floating down the river and breathing the fresh air - what a refreshing "float" we had. I love love loved this excursion. It was a nice small group and our guide was incredible. He really lives the alaska lifestyle and I felt like we got an authentic look into life in alaska. I'd actually definitely do this one again.

This was an enjoyable little float down the river and definitely was not a scary experience. The guide was informative and navigated the river just fine. The worst part was putting on the boots because they didn't have a place to sit and get them on. For the money it was a pleasant experience.

Brian - our tour guide - was Amazing and Fantastic!!! Such a genuine nice guy and he gave us narrative of the area we were driving and floating. Brian was educating us along the way as we were all in awww of our beautiful surroundings. Also, the other guys on land who assisted us were nice and friendly too. The whole group of guys made sure safety was priority above all else. I will def recommend this tour to my clients!! A++

The eagles have landed, and flown and froliced.
October 05, 2017
The river was almost too calm - our oarsman actually had to paddle a bit. That was perfect, because it gave us plenty of tome to spot bald eagles. We saw - wait for it - a total of 10 eagles. Two of them were juveniles, our guide estimating them at about 2 years old. No white heads yet. They were flying together in a swooping game that looked like two teenagers playing "chicken". After a couple of minutes of this, an adult (Mom?) flew between them and broke up the game. The four of us on the raft all agreed that it was mom or dad telling them to knock it off.

Total Relaxation
August 30, 2017
While the pick up at the dock for the cruise ship was a bit on the casual side, it should have given me an idea how relaxing this excursion was going to be. Brian, who picked us up, took us to Brian (yes another one) who was our float guide. Both great guys, and definitely prompt but not in a rush. The float down the river was smooth with no challenging water. We were told about the general area, saw bald eagles, sea lions, and blue sky. The float took about an hour, with snacks and beverages at the finish. This group couldn't have been more friendly or accommodating for our trip. On the way back to the ship, they offered to drop us wherever we wanted in town or back at the ship. I recommend this to anyone who wants to relax and enjoy the sights without burning calories.

Scenic Skagway Float
June 23, 2017
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.

calm trip w/few surprizes
December 09, 2016
My wife and I took this trip on an overcast day and temperatures were chilly. Even so, it was our first trip down a large stream in rubber rafts. As such, we enjoyed it. There were no ""white water"" adventures (which we weren't ready for anyway) and our guide was able to work around or through any obstacles (such as a tree that had fallen into the water and almost completely blocked our passage). It would've been a bit nicer in warmer weather but we had no choice in that matter.

Had no idea what we were getting into when I signed up. we were first time cruisers. Brooke was great lots of information along the drive to the river and then while on the river. She are her coworkers were very professional and made sure of our safety. She made us laugh but allowed us to enjoy the beauty along the river and learn of its history.

The experience was fun, relaxing and informative. Sam gave us a historical overview of Skagway/Dyea and the gold rush era. The staff was helpful getting us in and out of our raft. The salmon refreshments at the end of the tour were delicious. Would have been perfect if something hot (coffee or coco) was included.

I wanted something that was a little adventurous but nothing that would put myself under any danger from my medical condition. The Skagway Float fitted the bill perfectly. I just wish it could have been longer as it was so enjoyable. My guide was knowledgeable and skilful guiding the raft around obstacles and in reading river conditions.

We went on the hike that goes along with the float. The guide was so informative and so helpful making sure everyone was safe and enjoying themselves. We learned so much and saw so much more than if we wouldn't have hiked. It made us feel young again. We saw bear scat, and things in nature we never knew we never knew. I'd do it again!

He told us of life in Alaska, soe history and great local spots. he told stories thath were great fun for us. Even throughout the frivolity, he had a keen ability to manouver around the ever changing obstacles in the swift river. I would highly recommend this excusion. Skagway was our favorite stop!
