Gear up for a rafting adventure in Skagway; be on the lookout for waterfalls, coves and wildlife.
We did a guided tour on a 20 foot raft. No need to paddle, just sit and enjoy the bald eagle preserve. Saw 5-8 eagles, but no other animals. Later we took a helicopter ride that dropped us off at a glacier. It ended up being freezing cold and I had 3 layers on. Luckily the pilot came back 30 minutes later and picked us up.

We had great guides and saw dozens of bald eagles. It was a bit early in the season so floating down the river was a bit difficult in some portions (the water wasn't deep enough so we got stuck a few times), but it was a lot of fun.

Eagle rafting wildlife tour, rain! Tour was way too expensive for what we received. Princess price gouging! Staff were wonderful.

We had a fantastic raft ride with Ocean Raft Alaska up the Lynn Canal. Our guides were truly outstanding and I would highly recommend them. They truly conveyed how much they love their state and have a thorough knowledge of the local flora and fauna. We had an unbelievable time taking in all the amazing scenery and wildlife! After our raft, we lunched at the Skagway Brewing Company and hiked around the Lower Dewey Lake. Skagway was our favorite port.
