After being met right at the pier in Skagway, you will be escorted to the nearby fast ferry for your trip over to Haines. Although this is serving as transportation to your final destination, the scenery around you will have you already anticipating your return to Skagway so you can soak it in one more time. After being met right at the pier in Haines and after meeting your guide you will enjoy a brief city tour of local highlights and memorable photo opportunities of the Historic Fort William H. Seward and the Chilkat Mountains as a backdrop. Make sure your camera is fired up and ready to go.
Once at the private property of your jet boat tour operator, you will be outfitted in all the essentials for an adventure into the Alaskan wilderness! With quiet outboard jet motors, your guide will escort you through the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve, providing the best opportunities for wildlife viewing and scenic photos. The boat will come to a stop for any encounter with a moose, bear, or bald eagle to help truly capture the moment. Make sure you take some time to put your camera away and take a deep breath, this is Alaska at its finest.
After the jet boat ride, you will head to a covered and heated pavilion with modern facilities for lunch before heading back to the pier for your return ferry ride to Skagway.
