Ocean Raft Wildlife Adventure Shore Tour

We will start this Skagway shore excursion by outfitting you in the same gear worn by US Coast Guard rescue teams. Everyone will wear a one-piece exposure suit to keep you warm and dry throughout the trip. This suit fits right over your regular clothing. You will also have Oakley goggles, gloves and balaclavas (head covering) provided to enhance the experience.

After you are outfitted for this Skagway shore trip, we will board the vessel in the Skagway boat harbor, right next to the cruise ship docks. After a brief safety orientation aboard the boat, we will race out into Tayia Inlet and begin our tour of North America's longest and deepest Fjord.

On this tour, you will be riding on the same type of boat used by U.S. Navy Seals and Coast Guard rescue teams. With its deep V hull surrounded by inflatable tubes, this boat is designed to deliver a comfortable ride in any ocean condition. Its special design allows us to get extra-close to the shore while exploring hidden coves, waterfalls, beaches and wildlife. You will straddle our custom shock-absorbing seats as we race by the steep rock walls of this spectacular fjord. On this fun filled two hour adventure tour, your Captain will make multiple stops for photo opportunities and wildlife sightings are abundant. Eagles seem to be everywhere and keep your eyes open looking for seals, mountain goats and the occasional whale.

Our US Coast Guard certified Captains will provide a colorful narrative while under way, sharing their extensive knowledge of local animals, plants, history and geology. On occasion, the captain will turn the engines off, allowing you to soak in the sights and sounds of this pristine Alaskan wilderness.

The survival suits that were given to us to where we're very warm and kept you very secure. The guys were very informative and the captain of the boat was very good in managing the boat. The scenery was awesome and beautiful. We received plenty of time for photo-taking. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. We did not have any difficulties as far as rough riding.

Reviewer: Lori Peljovich
The Ocean Raft was a blast. A total adventure from "suiting up" to racing across the frigid water to viewing waterfalls and sea otters up close. Our guides were terrific and made the ride lots of fun. Family of five (ages 17 and up) all loved it. Highly recommend this for anyone looking to up the adrenaline level and experience Alaska up close. Shore Excursions was so easy to work with and all of our excursions were just as promised. Will definitely book with Shore Excursions again if we are lucky enough to need them!
