Your wildlife safari starts when you meet your guides on the docks in Skagway, to meet your guides for a 30-minute fast ferry ride from Skagway to Haines. This portion of the tour gives you a unique glimpse at the Lynn Canal, the widest and deepest fjord in all of North America. Wildlife opportunities begin on this portion of the Chilkoot Canoe Wildlife Safari; watch for whales, seals, and eagles. When you arrive in Haines, you will journey over to Chilkoot Lake, including a quick stop at the historic Fort Seward and a drive through Chilkoot River Valley. Keep an eye out the window; this portion of the tour offers great wildlife opportunities.
Upon reaching Chilkoot Lake, you will hop in the traditional and spacious motor-assisted canoe for 2 hours of exploration on the lake. Following this, head back to Haines for a picnic lunch on a pristine private beach. Then, hop back on the same ferry that previously brought you from Skagway to Haines, for your return right to the cruise ship docks.
Looking for more wildlife opportunities? Heading to Ketchikan? You should take a glimpse at the exciting Neets Bay Bear Watch & Flightseeing, a great opportunity to see black bears and the Tongass Rainforest from above!
