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.

Reviewer: Laura Amodeo
This was the highlight of our trip! Dressing up the Navy Seal gear was awesome. We did donuts in the water and got up close to the waterfalls and caves. We saw harbor seals and Bald Eagles. It was absolutely freezing so we were grateful for the thick suits. Hats and gloves were also provided. Our crew was well organized and very knowledgeable. So happy we did this! We booked this tour from the Shore Excursions website. It was not offered on our cruise ship's site until 30 days prior to sailing and it was listed for more than what we paid here. People on land were asking if the coast guard was going through drills when the boats sped by. I explained that it was an excursion and they said they wished they had known about it.
