Ocean Raft Adventure
Ocean Raft Wildlife Adventure
Start this Ocean Raft Adventure in Skagway by outfitting yourself in the same gear worn by US Coast Guard rescue teams. Your one-piece exposure suit will keep you warm and dry throughout the trip, and fits right over your regular clothing.
After you are outfitted for this Skagway shore trip, board the vessel in the Skagway boat harbor, right next to the cruise ship docks. After a brief safety orientation aboard the boat, race out into Taiya Inlet and begin your 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 you to get extra close to the shore while exploring hidden coves, waterfalls, beaches, and wildlife. You will straddle the custom shock-absorbing seats as you race by the steep rock walls of this spectacular fjord. On this fun filled ocean raft adventure in Skagway, your captain will make multiple stops for photo opportunities, and wildlife sightings are abundant. Eagles seem to be everywhere, and you should keep your eyes open looking for seals, mountain goats, and otters.
Your 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.
