Ocean Raft Adventure

Arriving

Take one look at the jaw-dropping photos and see why the Ocean Raft Adventure has quickly come into high demand! With the help of the same class of high-powered boat used by US Navy Seals and Coast Guard Rescue teams, this exhilarating Skagway tour takes you on a high-octane journey into the wild beauty of Lynn Canal, North America’s longest and deepest fjord. Hold on tight as your Coast Guard-certified captain and guide take you zipping along the fjord, racing beside towering rock walls, crashing waterfalls, and hidden coves. It’s not all fast, adrenaline-pumping action, however, as there are multiple stops during this fun-packed two-hour adventure for photo opportunities and wildlife viewing (guests on this ocean raft wildlife adventure commonly sight whales, sea lions, seals, and eagles!). There’s no set route on this tour, as your experienced captain adjusts travel on a daily basis according to weather conditions and wildlife cycles, giving you the best possible experience. Just sit tight and enjoy this ultimate Skagway adventure!

With a deep V-hull surrounded by inflatable tubes, your ocean raft wildlife adventure boat is designed for a comfortable ride in any ocean conditions. Further, your full-exposure suit keeps you warm and dry throughout the spectacular journey. You will also be supplied with Oakley goggles and a balaclava. And custom shock-absorbing seats will add to your comfort as your captain takes the powerful boat up to top speed. The amazing Ocean Raft Adventure includes pick-up and return to the cruise docks, as well as transport to and from the boat harbor in Skagway. Seats are limited on this stellar Skagway adventure (17 per boat), so be sure to book well ahead to reserve the ride of your life!

    BrilliantWe did this trip last week and it was amazing, a combination of a thrilling ride and the peace of wildlife and nature. The ride was fast with lots of twists and turns, I am not an adrenaline junkie and quite scared of anything remotely "dangerous" but the team were so professional in every way I felt completely safe. Alyssa very knowledgable and so helpful and lovely. Big age range and abilities but everyone loved it - do it!!

    What a thrilling rideWe had the best time on this ocean raft excursion. We were 4 people ranging in age from 13 ,49, 75, and 80 and we loved every minute of it. The crew were very professional and made sure everyone was comfortable and happy. The suits they gave us were wonderful kept us dry and warm as toast. Absolutely a highlight of our Alaska trip

    Ocean Raft Tour....Fun times!!Our family of 4 was picked up at the pier by Alyssa. Since we were a little early, she drove around Skagway as our personal tour guide. We enjoyed the sites. Great time for the whole family. We saw bald eagles, a harbor seal, and beautiful waterfalls. It allowed us to see a little but of Skagway's beauty up close while wearing super-warm suits on a 500hp driven boat! Good times!!

    Ocean Raft AdventureGreat guides, great knowledge & perfect weather. We went roughly 30-40 mph I would say. Maybe a tad faster at times. I have a bad neck but I went anyway..;-). I just used my legs as shock absorbers if we bounced. I was totally fine. It was so serene. A+++

    Memorable Raft TripOur group of 13 had a wonderful time on the Skagway Ocean Raft Adventure! Our ages ranged from 17 to 73, and everyone enjoyed seeing the mountains and waterfalls up close. All the gear we needed was provided - suits to keep us warm and dry, gloves, hats, and goggles. The word "raft" is misleading - our driver (wish I could remember his name!) made sure that we went fast at times, and the young adults in our group loved that! Our guide Alyssa was great, and we all learned so much about the plants, trees, and wildlife. We were thrilled to see some otters and eagles. This was a very fun way to enjoy Skagway.

    Ocean Raft Adventure - Wow!This adventure exceeded our expectations! The boat captain was skilled, and gave us thrills. We enjoyed the lovely scenery--getting up close to the waterfalls and observing many bald eagles in their natural habitat. Everyone in our group agreed we would definitely do this again!

    Truly memorable day!

    Naturalist CP and Captain Christian made our day incredible. The suits and raft were comfortable and the journey fun and just exciting enough. Views were breath taking and spotting wildlife, especially the juvenile bald eagle catching its prey, were amazing.

    What type of boat is it?

    Answer: This is the only US Coast Guard certified open Zodiac tour in Alaska. Our custom-built, 30-ft. RHIB (Rigid-Hulled Inflatable Boat) is designed to safely operate in virtually any sea conditions. With its deep-V aluminum hull surrounded by an inflatable collar, this Zodiac Hurricane 920 is able to provide a comfortable ride for up to 17 people. This is the same type of vessel used by the Navy Seals and US Coast Guard teams on extreme missions worldwide. We are powered by twin 250-horsepower, four-stroke outboard motors to make us the fastest ocean tour in Alaska!

    Where does this tour go?

    Answer: This tour explores the Lynn Canal, which is the longest, deepest fjord in North America and one of the largest in the world, measuring at over 2,000 feet deep. Although it is named a canal, it is actually a fjord, which is a glacially carved U-shaped valley. The Taiya Inlet was an important waterway during the Klondike gold rush, offering passage to the deep-water port of Skagway and, by smaller boat (due to sediment from the Taiya river), the now ghost town of Dyea. These 2 boom towns were gateways to the White Pass and Chilkoot trails.
