Skagway, Alaska-port

Skagua, as it is known by the Tlingit, means” windy place.” Skagway, a place of many names, and much history is the northern terminus of the Alaska Marine Highway. It was known to thousands of hopeful gold rushers as the gateway to the gold fields. Skagway retains the flavor of the gold rush era and the character of such colorful inhabitants as Soapy Smith “King of the Frontier Con Men”; especially on Broadway, with its false-front buildings, and in the Trail of ‘98 Museum, with its outstanding collection of gold fever memorabilia.

    The small town of Haines is as close to Northern Exposure as you can get without the television script and is where you will find the world-famous Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve. Home to nesting bald eagles and a variety of indigenous wildlife, a visit here offers you the greatest likelihood of sighting not only Bald Eagles, but moose and perhaps bears as well, in their natural habitat.

    Your tour departs from Skagway via fast ferry to Haines, a 45-minute scenic ride away. Once in Haines you will board the bus to take you to the jet boat facility. The Preserve encompasses 48,000 acres of wilderness and this excursion allows you to access the road-less portion of it in a specially designed, flat-bottom riverboat as you travel for miles along different channels of the Chilkat River. These boats are specially designed for this silt-laden river and are equipped with eco-friendly, four-stroke outboard motors. This allows for your guide to usually hold against the current or turn around and go back when the depth of the water allows - giving you the very best photo opportunities.

    The animals here are used to human presence, so be sure to bring your camera along for this unparalleled wilderness adventure in the heart of this amazing Preserve. Surrounded by towering mountains, cascading waterfalls, hanging glaciers and pristine, unspoiled nature, you will be treated to a truly unforgettable experience. While the boats are uncovered for better wildlife viewing and photographic opportunities, extra jackets and large waterproof, windproof lap blankets keep you warm and dry.

    Join your hosts at their private property, where you can enjoy an old-fashioned hot dog roasted over the open barbecue and sample fabulous Chilkat Valley chili as you relax in the heated pavilion, or sit by the campfire and visit with your hosts and fellow adventurers.

    Following your break, you will re-board the bus and transfer back to the pier in Haines where you will return via fast ferry to Skagway and your awaiting ship.

    Please note: This moderate activity tour includes a limited amount of walking; however, participants must be able to make their own way on and off the touring vessel. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Casual, weather appropriate layered clothing and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested. Jackets, hats and gloves are provided as needed, as well as waterproof and windproof fleece lap blankets. Wildlife sightings are likely, but not guaranteed.
