This is one of two remaining gold rush era river boats that ferried gold seekers from Whitehorse to Dawson. It has been restored to original condition over many years and along with location it is a wonderful couple of hours for any visitor to Whitehorse.

We could only see the outside of the boat as it was still closed for the season. It's interesting to see it and we learned the history from other places in town but would have liked to go inside. It's on land not in the water but sits near the river so is a nice walk.

Good to visit another time and era. The entire boat reeks of class. It's from a time when people were proud of themselves their nation and their work. Take the walk I say and look the ole girl over. We did and we enjoyed it.

Great relic of the halcyon days of the Yukon. Good for photos and to get a sense of the size and scope of river travel. Not able to board the vessel. I don;t know if this is a seasonal thing (maybe they need staff there to oversee the visitors), but all I could do was view and circle the perimeter.... More

The Klondike is parked at the shore and is visible but you are not able to board. The history is worth a look see.

this is a nice spot to get good information on the Yukon river, the work done by these boats and the work done by the local nations.

Gold brought people to Whitehorse and the Yukon but without boats like this, sustaining the community in those early days would have been impossible. Built with a shallow draft that permitted running the river even when the water levels were low made it possible to keep the town supplied and to haul gold and other products to market. The original... More
