Amazing boat ride
September 17, 2018
We enjoyed this excursion; the company provided blankets, warm rain-resistant jackets and even gloves. We saw some wildlife and learned a lot about some of the animals' different behaviors and adaptations. Lunch was good but very rushed, leading to an afternoon of indigestion. I appreciated being on the water for as long a time as we were; would rather have skipped lunch after though.

It was raining and the river was very swollen, but we had a great time. The staff was great and our guide was fantastic. We saw eagles and moose.

We had a super time on this tour. There were only 4 of us in our boat so we felt "special". The way they bundle you up for the boat ride is hilarious are reminded of the bundled up little boy of The Christmas Story as you waddle down to the dock. Even tho it rained, we had a really good time. Our captain was very knowledgeable of the area and we saw Salmon swimming up stream and even saw a Moose. Had a great time & would do this one agsin!

Chilkat river run
November 15, 2016
Had a great time jetting on the Chilkat river. Our guide was very personable, skilled & knowledgeable of Haines & the river. They bundled us up in additional clothes before we left & I was grateful as it was especially chilly on the ride back. Unfortunately we didn't see any big wildlife like moose out there on the river's edge but it was beautiful scenery nonetheless.
