Travel the Chilkat River in a Jet Boat

Explore miles of tributaries on the stunning, glacially-carved Chilkat River system. A professional guide ensures your comfort every step of the way and provides entertaining, informative narration. This Skagway shore excursion is ideal for nature lovers and adventurers.

Start your Skagway day tour with a beautiful glacial fjord ferry ride to the town of Haines, known as Alaska's adventure capital. Enjoy a brief tour of this charming town with local highlights and memorable photo opportunities of the Historic Fort William H. Seward and the Chilkat Mountains as a backdrop.

The adventure part of your Skagway tour is next. Your friendly guide drives you up the Haines Scenic Byway to the private property of River Adventures. Prepare for your jet boat journey through the Chilkat Eagle Preserve on a powerful, quiet, and uncovered boat for the best views of wildlife, scenery, and photo opportunities. Moose are often the highlight of the tour, along with bald eagles and their massive nests dotting the river banks.

The captain will stop the boat when water depth allows, so you can capture an Alaska photo for the ages! This Skagway excursion is designed for small groups, ensuring comfort and maximum attention from guides. Warm and friendly staff provide exceptional customer service. Lunch is provided in a covered, heated pavilion. Book today for the Alaska experience of a lifetime!

Guide Rustin Gooden, Naturalist provided an excellent narrative exploring the Chilkat River basin. Close up and personal to eagles, bears and moose in a gorgeous setting. Nesting Eagles as well as spanning Salmon. Enjoyed a much smaller group on the tour and it was less expensive than operated by the cruise line.

We had the best time. If you don't have enough warm clothing don't worry, they had warm waterproof jackets to put on top of your own, blankets too. We got to see many bears and other wild life. Our captain CP was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Our guide (CK) was fun and full of information not only about our sightings on the river, but on Haines and the surrounding areas in Alaska. Great trip

Reviewer: Douglas Peters
Our Jet boat adventure was a hit-and-miss for the local wildlife, mostly a miss because almost no wildlife was around. We saw a bear, a baby moose, some swans and a couple of ducks. The boat ride was real fun because the river was so low we thought we were going to get stuck on a sand bar at any time, but we had a great navigator and he made it exciting. After the boat ride they served us a hot dog lunch. A good day.

5 StarsExcellent!! Highly Recommend this one.June 29, 2017

Reviewer: Leonard & Mary Scott
This was truly a highlight of the trip. Our boat commander was knowledgeable and he made it a point to take us where we would surely see bears. That was awesome. The people waiting back on land had a wonderful lunch waiting for us and treated us absolutely wonderful. Lunch was such a treat. All were so helpful to my husband who is partly handicapped. I highly recommend this excursion.
