 Skagway

This activity is another example of how the actual raft trip is just one part of a terrific introduction to Alaskan wilderness and history. The location of your entry into the Taiya River allows you to enjoy a beautiful ride along the coast to Dyea valley. It's an old gold rush settlement steeped in history. Your narrated ride will not only be interesting but scenic and you might spot some eagles, as well as other natural elements, while you listen and observe. Again, no promises, but lots of porpoises and seals are usually seen.

The float trip itself starts after you suit up in life jackets, rubber boots, and rain gear if necessary. The trip is comfortable and requires no experience or skill. Your discussion while floating down the lazy river will center more around the natural beauty surrounding you. As your group will be small, you will be able to hear as well as see the sounds of Alaska.
