Your big day kicks off with pick-up from the Skagway cruise docks and a lovely ferry ride toward the Adventure Capital of Alaska, a charming frontier town called Haines. Here, you’ll get to know your expert local guide and enjoy a brief guided tour of the outpost before striking out along the scenic Haines Highway toward your tranquil journey by jetboat! You’ll hop on a sneaky flat-bottomed boat, the perfect vehicle for stealthily approaching Alaskan wildlife, before heading out into the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve, where during certain months there is a higher concentration of the birds than anywhere else in the world! It’s not uncommon to see moose on this lovely standout among Skagway day tours.
Your knowledgeable guide will narrate your excursion among scenic wonders, pausing the boat beneath hulking eagles’ nests and the emerald-green Chilkat Mountains to answer your questions. Later, to celebrate a successful day on the water, you’ll enjoy a steaming meal back at base camp (grilled hot dogs, vegetarian chili, cookies, hot and cold drinks) before catching the lovely ferry ride back to Skagway. One of the favorite Alaska excursions among folks searching for unforgettable wildlife photos, this brand-new gem among Skagway day tours is sure to leave you with lasting memories!!
